There is no such thing as an “illegal immigrant”.
You are either an immigrant or a criminal trespasser/invader.
To immigrate and to be classified as an immigrant you must follow the current legal process.
Sneaking into a country should NEVER be considered to be immigration in any form, shape or manner.
Disarm the communist left by refusing to use their made up terms which are designed to distort debate and understanding of any subject.
You are right of course. And it's such a simple effortless thing.
I am guilty of that very lapse. In the future I will only refer to them as illegal residents.
Thank you for the rhetorical push. Words have always meant things; abuse of words serve the propaganda monster and confound adult debate.
