if it were hispanics who are legal citizens complaining of being mistaken for illegal aliens, they have my sincere apology

if it were hispanics who are in reality illegal aliens complaining of being called illegal aliens, point them south and speed them on their way with a 13EEE Redwing in the kiester

If “illegals” offends our precious “hispanics”, we can always revert to “wetbacks”.

When did I use the word, “wetback” in my replies to the article?

The Left always tries to put a happy face on a term to avoid reality.

A couple of years ago a U.S. Forest Service spokesclown in CA had this classic term in their press release about an illegal alien arrested guarding a grow operation:

DISPLACED FOREIGN TRAVELER

Remember when drunks and drug addicts morphed into substance abusers? Bums are now 'homeless,' etc?

Deported.

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

Our politicians leave their lipstick all over illegals’ asses.

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!”

Your wife sounds like our Hispanic neighbor Sandra. She is 4th or 5th generation legal immigrant. She knows very little Spanish and told some illegal workers to get the heck out of our country.

How long will it take for people to see that Fox News is not conservative, and Fox News Latino is part of the problem?
Instead of Americanizing Latinos this effort validates their Balkanization. And now we aren't supposed to hurt the feelings of criminal invaders because of the cultural feelings of Latinos? WTF? What do Puerto Ricans or Latinos who have been here from decades, if not centuries, have to do with each other? And the various immigrants speak different dialects. As for race, What do Shakira and Carmen Diaz have in common with a Mayan? The very concept of "Latino" and Hispanic as a race with unified ideas is a mortal threat to America.

The term “illegal aliens” is now “pejorative”??

How about “criminal scum”? Does that work?
