Illegal immigrants are still illegal. They are still here in violation of current laws and statutes. They are still criminals by definition!

Don't stop using the "I" word just because it offends the guilty...just like Terrorists...they won't call Maj Nidal Hassad (the army shooter - however he spells his name) a terrorist because they don't want to admit terrorism is here in the US.

GO HOME CRIMINAL ALIEN!
What don't you understand about breaking the law?
Even if you were born here to illegal parents go home.
We don't need your "contribution" to our society.
On the other hand, if you want to come here in accordance with the already liberal immigrant policy, welcome.

Yea, and a drug dealer is an undocumented pharmacist. Why can't these liberal, politically correct jerks just tell it like it is.

Illegal is Illegal, if you don't like the "I" word go back to where you came from & come here LEGALLY.

I will never quit using the I words
Illegal Immigrants is what they are and if they don't want to be called Illegal Immigrants, go back home.

I think a great idea is that if these ILLEGALS want to become LEGALS than they shod be forced to serve in the U.S. military for a few years.

its even more funny to think that obama wants them to be citizens for the tax base but once they are citizens and are subject to our laws and fines and fees and taxes, they too will stop working...

From another article:

"On his radio show last week, Geraldo Rivera applauded the Associated Press’ decision to drop the term “illegal immigrant” from its official style guidelines and then decreed that no one should use the phrase any longer, seeing as how he believes it is akin to saying “negro” to describe a black person."

I knew I didn't like Geraldo when he had his own show. I gave him the benefit of the doubt since he was on Fox News, but now I am convinced.
