Show some compassion.
Drop the “illegal alien” and go back to “wetback”.
If it was good enough for politicians in the President Reagan era it should be good enough for us.
OK, how about “crimials?”
Or good old-fashioned “law breakers?”
Do any of those “dehumanize?”
It is just a letter to the editor, not a Times editorial. Most newspapers print opposing opinions.
Since the letter reveals the idiocy of the Vice Chairman of the DNC, I'm glad the WT printed it.
Then on June 17, 1954, what was called "Operation Wetback" began. Because political resistance was lower in California and Arizona, the roundup of aliens began there. Some 750 agents swept northward through agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions a day.
By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught in the two states. Another 488,000, fearing arrest, had fled the country.
By mid-July, the crackdown extended northward into Utah, Nevada, and Idaho, and eastward to Texas.
By September, 80,000 had been taken into custody in Texas, and an estimated 500,000 to 700,000 illegals had left the Lone Star State voluntarily.
Thanks for the clarification.
I prefer Crimigants. Or Crimaliens.
If they don’t like it, then they shouldn’t become one. It’s really not that difficult to grasp folks.
I dont think Willard has ever callled them ILLEGAL ALIENS
her just goes along with the other enablers and calls them undocumented, immigrants, future Americans etc...
and he has been known to call them “employees”
Crimigants...I like that one!
I don’t care if we call them any of your choices as long as they are kicked out and get in line. Too many people fill out the paperwork and wait their turn to allow this to continue. Some say you can’t hunt them down, but thats not necessary they show up, at the ER, Schools, Malls, Job sites. Our laws should be the exact immigration laws Mexico uses. Voting too. You can’t vote in Mexico without a voter ID. Why is this so difficult to understand. We are a Nation not a mall. The 14th admendment was never intended to allow ILLEGALS the right to slide into the US while in labor and drop a kid. Its intent was to guarantee citizenship for blacks after the civil war. Anchors belong on a boat not a person. I spent 20 years in he military and my youngest was born in Korea. She was not offered Korean citizenship. The only ay to dehumananize someone is to abort them. The motto should be Your Human and you ass is headed beck to you own Country.
When real Americans had their own country.
We don’t have our own country anymore, you know this as well as I do.
We are just tolerated guests in some freak dystopia; for how much longer; who knows when they’ll decide it is time to re-educator or eliminate us.
‘Illegal’ describes a legal reality. Shove it up your 0bama, libs.
A good Democrat.
Is this satire?
“The I-word, short for illegal alien, illegal immigrant and like harmful terms, is a racially charged slur used to strip immigrants of their humanity.”
The Olympic-class stupidity of liberals is truly stunning.
Literally. This is like the Beethoven’s 9th of Dumb.
Not only are you an ILLEGAL ALIEN you are all COWARDS for running away from your country when you should be standing and fighting for your rights. GO BACK HOME COWARDS.
Apparently when you are a legal American citizen, it means you are a fool.
The author(s) of the article is(are) very PC.
This statement in the article is how the reality of the Illegal Aliens will be resolved: “ - - - making their lives so miserable that they must leave the country.”
It is all about the Federal Boundary Law and the Welfare Money.
Well, also about the Illegal Aliens who are a big part of Romney’s 47 % who pay no Personal Federal Income Taxes.
