What should we call illegal aliens?
The Virginian ^ | 11/28/2011 | Moneyrunner

Posted on 11/28/2011 5:57:24 PM PST by moneyrunner

Mickey Kaus has a good little essay on this.

I have a suggestion: A few years ago my niece was speaking of a class of people as “Canadians.” I wondered about that because the characteristics she was discussing were not in any way attributable to Canadians. I suddenly realized what she was talking about and began to laugh. It’s a great illustration that no matter what you call an identifiable group, people see through your euphemism and know what you’re referring to. So here’s a suggestion, let’s change the term from “illegal alien” to … oh, “Martian.” Everyone will know what you mean and it will drive the Left nuts. What can they say, that the real Martians may object?


TOPICS: Government; Politics; Society

REFUGEES...

That is what they are...

That is how they should be categorized and handled...

Mexico should be declared a failed state.

Be nice. I was thinking of a term that people could use in high society without raising the eyebrows of any Fifth avenue matron. If we begin discussing the terrible effect of the invasion of Martians, the effect on our economy, their displacement of low skilled American workers, their disregard of immigration law, their effect on ranchers in the Southwest, what can they say?

Keep calling them “illegal aliens” today; call them “deportees” tomorrow and “Mexican Residents” (or whatever national adjective is appropriate) on Wednesday.

Excellent comment. judging from the rest of the comments on this thread, I am guessing that my suggestion of 'human beings' won't be all that well received.
