why does it matter what the MSM uses to describe something?
I've heard them say someone made an Illegal U-Turn
or an illegal stop
maybe you should stop your selective hearing.
Because when the law itself is immoral (in this case because it is not sincere and a major culprit, that is employers, are not sanctioned). good and moral people would not honor such laws and perhaps would engage in civil disobedience.
Here, I have no problem calling say British citizens, or Canadian ones who come here and overstay their visa and try to circumvent our immigration laws as illegal aliens.
Because it leads to unequal treatment of civil offenders. An illegal driver would be treated much less harshly in the eyes of the society than an illegal alien even though both committed civil infractions that are equal in magnitude in the eyes of the law.
You probably have a point there.
The laws should be written more closely according to their severity.
I move that the immigration laws be made criminal violations and not civil, with mandatory prison sentences and then deportation for illegal aliens who violate those criminal laws.
"In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year."
"If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health-care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health-care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.”
"I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.”
We should not be calling anyone "illegal alien" simply because we are not referring to unlicensed drivers as "illegal drivers".
Your analogy fails.
The term "illegal drivers" isn't commonly used because there are a number of usual reasons why someone could be an illegal driver, and a number of punishments and penalties for them. Therefore the descriptive terms "drunk driver", "reckless driver", "speeding driver", "unlicensed driver", etc., are more accurately used.
An alien, in this country illegally, is pretty cut and dry, hence the common and descriptive term, "Illegal alien".
Try just making a thread on your goal of open borders, instead of a silly attempt to change the lexicon
