What’s In A Name?

The far left whiners who think Americans  owe them are at it again.

This time is just happens to be illegal aliens who are opposed to the terminalogy ‘illegal.”  They are insisting they should be called “undocumented” because “illegal criminalizes a whole community.”

Alina Das, assistant professor of clinical law at New York University agrees: “One action, whether it’s a crime, shouldn’t be used to define a whole group of  people or one individual.”

To begin with, if you are in this country legally,  no one has called you an illegal.   Nor is anyone defining a whole class of people as illegals because you chose to break  the law.

Websters define illegal as  criminal, unlawful, wrongful, unprincipled, unscrupulous, etc.   Criminal is defined as one who has broke the law.    If you are in this country without proper documentation,  if you snuck across our border in violation of American law, you are a criminal and thus illegal.

If you feel uncomfortable with the term, go back home and make proper application to come to America –  legally.    No one forced you to  break the law  and no one is forcing you to stay.  Man up!  You made the decision to break the law, put on your big boy panties and deal with it!

    It would seem to me that your commentary are actually not completely rationalized and in actuality you are generally your self not completely convinced of the argument. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.

    I’m not certain you actually read the article. I couldn’t have been more clear that I consider any one that sneaks across our border, breaking our laws, is an illegal alien and a criminal.
