Redefinition of “Illegal Alien”

Reading this post at got me thinking…

I recently watched a Lou Dobbs special on CNN which was an open “Town Hall” meeting in Texas. Fascinating.

Besides making fools of themselves and their arguments through uncivilized behavior, proponents for open borders made clear their goal of undermining the fundamental and rudimentary definition of non-citizens that crossed the border unlawfully. That definition being, “illegal aliens.” More than once, they insisted that illegal aliens be called “undocumented immigrants,” claiming that no one is ever “illegal” and Mexican immigrants are not from another planet.

Perhaps this is why they abhor making English the only official language in the US. They don’t even know it themselves.

1. forbidden by law or statute.
2. contrary to or forbidden by official rules, regulations, etc.:

1. a resident born in or belonging to another country who has not acquired citizenship by naturalization (distinguished from citizen).
2. a foreigner.
3. a person who has been estranged or excluded.
