Hmmm....so should we start calling them "Undies" instead?

This is just ridiculous.

The fact that there’s a “Fox News Latino” shows just how willing companies are to cater to any group. Fox is no different than NBC or CBS.

pejorative terms, such as "illegals" or "illegal aliens."

And this is how "racist" terms are born.

What are illegal immigrants called in Mexico?
The ones that come from the Guatemala and southwards and elsewhere, that are not welcome in in Mexico.

Typical lefties, trying to control how we feel about something by changing the language.

In Mexico illegal aliens are called “mojados.” That is the Spanish word for “wet.” We should be more sensitive and multicultural. Lets call them mojados.

Almost Half of Incarcerated people Find ‘Prisoner & Felon’ Offensive, Says Poll.

They also want the right to vote and collect tax monies, too.

Go to L, you ninnies! Better yet, go home where you are legal and not an immigrant. You won’t need to hear the term then.

But you people aren’t about solutions, you are about forcing tax paying citizens to conform to your wants, needs and desires. NO!

It is what it is. A dog is a dog, a duck a duck.

Were invaded by millions of Mexicans who have absolutely no respect for our laws, rules, or borders, and Hispanics/Latinos have the freaking balls to tells us the word, "Illegal alien" offends them?

I am so damn sick of people pandering and kissing the asses of Mexicans/illegal aliens.

Not true at all. It is different.

Perhaps, not as different as we'd like, but don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. There is no reason not to exploit the Spanish-language population. In fact, it would be stupid to ignore them.

I’m offended that America tolerates this invasion from Mexico.

If they’re here illegally, no matter WHAT country they’re from, boot them out!

“Illegal immigrant” since they never planned to immigrate here and become legal citizens but only work and send the money back home to Mexico.

The proper term is,

“Illegal alien.”

The "almost half" who don't like the term "illegal" for illegal activities are the illegal aliens themselves. The majority of Hispanics, those who are themselves in compliance with the law, believe in telling it like it is.

Legal Hispanics support a strong border and tough enforcement.

My wife is Hispanic, she is fourth generation American of LEGAL Mexican immigrants, and ALL of her family HATES the term “illegal immigrants!”

As they say, these illegals are not “immigrants,” they are “wetbacks” or “illegal aliens!”

Exactly when did calling a spade a spade become such a loathsome act? More importantly, up until Obama was elected President, 75% of her family were Democrats.

Now, 90% are voting for ANYONE BUT OBAMA! I think many political pundits are REALLY under estimating the counter-productive nature of Obama’s Presidency! People are awake and seeing for themselves the destructive practices of his Administration! I think many of the “typical Democrat voters” will be pulling the lever for a Republican - wait and see. Why do you think that Obama had to start an obviously RACIST group like African-Americans for Obama? He knows his numbers are BAD!

“Wetback” is derogatory term used in the United States of America for a person of foreign nationality, historically a Mexican citizen, who is an illegal immigrant in the USA.[1] With the rise in both volume and variety of illegal aliens since the amnesties granted by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and subsequent legislation.

And this is how "racist" terms are born.

Yep. Label 'illegals' and 'illegal aliens' as pejorative terms and pretty soon we'll all be hearing those terms referred to as 'the I word' or 'the A word' and the enlightened masses will be self righteously shocked when they hear these words uttered in public.
