They are not "illegal immigrants" they are "illegal aliens", get it right media.
By adding immigrant rather than alien the media is just trying to confuse
people. They are breaking the law being in the United States illegally, that
makes them an illegal alien not an immigrant.
This story almost made me cry. We really need to start helping people break the
law and not be so closed minded. Laws are meant to be broken not obeyed. Their
plight sounds so bad I think they would have been better off staying in
Honduras, Mexico, Central America or wherever. America does not sound like a
very nice place.
I agree with "Illegals". I am tired of the media trying to force Americans to
feel sympathy for illegal immigrants. If anyone finds them self in a tough
situation because they broke the law, tough. Think about the consequences of
your actions before you break the law.
This really amazes me, the continued effort of some in the media to get people
to feel sorry for illegals.I don't feel sorry because they have created
their situation by breaking the law, (& who cares if it's a law you don't like,
it's the law!).They also create a sub-culture of "Low-Paid Slave-Labor"
that the unscrupulous (sic) prey upon.I will feel sorry for unfortunate
circumstances, not self-caused fear & dread!By the way, I think
legal immigration is great & so does my legal immigrant family-in-laws!
Funny how businesses always claim free market, but don't pay free market wages.
These day laborers are only paid enough to barely make ends meet. When will the
So a person immigrates here illegally, works for substandard wages (depressing
local wages), and then complains when he's on hold to talk to someone who speaks
Spanish? Why should the authorities weed out illegal immigrants who are taking
advantage of resources stretched to their limits in a disaster zone?
