From the following article:
another democrat, Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, is being too politically correct. She wants to ban the phrase, “illegal alien” from the state’s official documents. She suggests that the term “alien” is offensive, and also would like to do away with the term, “illegal.”
I did a quick search on Google, and the first definition of “alien” was: “ a person who comes from a foreign country; someone who does not owe allegiance to your country” Hmmm. Pretty straight forward, at least to me. As for the “illegal” part, well, if you aren’t here LEGALLY, then I guess you are in fact here ILLEGALLY. If you combine the two words, you get a perfect definition for someone who did not come to our country properly.
I think this country needs to start calling things as they are. We have bent over backwards to make sure we don’t hurt anyone’s feelings. In this situation, I believe that Senator Wilson can’t understand the basic definitions of these two fairly easy words in the English language… probably in the same manner these “illegal aliens” can’t understand either.
