House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rebuked House Speaker John Boehner on Friday for calling illegal immigrants ‘aliens’ in a tweet he sent out.

Speaker John Boehner ✔ @SpeakerBoehner

Obama admin should immediately deploy additional
personnel to assist in the processing & removal
of these aliens: http://j.mp/1lbtIxH

“Mr. Speaker, these comments and labels are inexcusable and reprehensible — no one should be politicizing the ordeal of these children in such a manner,” Pelosi’s office said.

Newsflash, NP: ‘alien’ is the correct legal term—even DHS uses it (Unaccompanied Alien Children).

Yeah like the Dems are using the “poor kids” for political reasons....

Quite frankly, I find you reprehensible Mrs. Pelosi for violating your oath of office to protect our borders from illegal aliens..

Ok.

Alien: a foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living.

We have allowed the left to control the language...

Immigration is a LEGAL means into a country... Therefore, illegal immigration is an oxymoron...

We are being INVADED by criminals...

So, the new language should be

Criminal Invaders... Feel free to use your OWN descriptions but we should stop using ANY words the left adopts...

Pro Choice = Pro Death (The opposite of Pro Life)
African American? Unless you LEGALLY immigrated here from Africa, you’re Black...

Then why do I find it in the dictionary?

illegal alien

noun
1. a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country's authorization.

2. a foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or businessperson. Compare resident alien.

Also called illegal immigrant.


This Piglosi woman has to be as dumb as that box of rocks Barbara, also of Mexifornai.

1798 Alien Friends Act
This act allowed the President at any time to order any aliens he deemed dangerous to be deported.

1798 Alien Enemies Act
This act was the first attempt at standardizing immigration and naturalizing foreign citizens. It was done under threat of war with France.

1790 Alien Naturalization Act
Any alien, being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen.

The left will never ever stop with their redefining the English language.

That's why I keep hammering away for FReepers to find a copy of Victor Klemperer's "Language of the 3rd Reich". In the book Klemperer details how the nazis manipulated the language as a means of manipulating German society.

It was easier for Germans to accept the idea that the Jews were being "relocated" than to accept the idea that they were being shipped off for extermination. I've read that many Germans started out believing that Jews were being "relocated" to places where they would be happier among their own kind. By the time the truth began to sink in, they were all complicit in the crime.

Start shipping them to her mansion in San Fran and her home in DC. Make them directly and personally HER personal problem to deal with. Bust her doors, down feed them from her kitchen, and let them sleep in her bedroom. Let them steal from her like they steal from us directly or indirectly. The Politically Correct Old Witch.

Each illegal alien, invader, intruders child in "OUR" the citizens paid for education system robs our children of teachers time, school funding, etc while giving the Illegals special treatment. That woman is a tyrant. How come she isn't helping to personally take care of the kids that arrived here the hypocrite she is?

I am sick of these hysterical people such as N. Pelosi and H Reid, deciding ordinary words are “offensive.” They should focus on getting answers to the Benghazi, IRS, and other scandals.

Pelosi - what a putz ...

As per the Immigration Reform And Control Act [IRCA] of 1986, the Congress and the federl government define s follows:

Definition of unauthorized alien.--As used in this section, the term 'unauthorized alien' means, with respect to the employment of an alien at a particular time, that the alien is not at that time either (A) an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, or (B) authorized to be so employed by this Act or by the Attorney General.

Thus, an illegal is an alien ...

Yo, San Fran Nan the Marxist Moron, “illegal aliens” is properly applied English language in definitional context in this usage.
