They can't even ask the question w/o showing bias.

Being in this country ILLEGALLY is not the same as being in this country 'without permission'.

Most voters understand what to call these law breakers. Only the political elite and their state run propagandists try to push this nonsense on the sheeple of America. Far too many falling for it.

To me, illegal alien is the best one because they may not want to immergrate here, they may just want to work here for awhile and go back home.

I voted for illegal alien. It’s an insult to legal immigrants to call illegals any kind of “immigrants.” But my real choice, “criminal invaders,” was not on the list.

I’ve noticed that the media doesn’t use the term “illegal alien” anymore.

They seem to favor “undocumented”, as if these people simply lost their driver’s license or birth certificates or passports. Think about that, you are also “undocumented” if you lose your documents and are waiting for replacements. They intentionally blur the distinctions among groups of people with the language and words they use.

But that’s how liberals are on many issues.

For example, abortion is re-defined as a matter of “women’s health”.

Global warming became “climate change”, when it became apparent that we are not seeing consistent patterns of warmer weather each year in recent years.

I’m sure there are other examples of this concept. The illegal alien debate is only one such area, in which the liberals intentionally use language which intentionally distorts the issue at hand.

I can’t remember when the media use the term “illegal alien” last. Two decades? Three? The Lynch Mob Media are Fifth Column traitors and have been for some time.
