Can immigration be confused with the word invasion?
And when does it become an invasion instead of immigration?

In my opinion, it has been an invasion for many years. Otherwise, we would not have untold millions living here illegally. However, our government will never acknowledge this fact, because to do so, would require military intervention, and actual border security. Itís shocking that Obama has ordered our National Guard to retreat from the border in February, despite the escalating violence on the border.

The single word immigration? NO Because that would indicate some sort of control is in fact in place.
Illegal- immigration? That would depend upon the size of said migration.
In the case of what we see flowing accross our southern border I think invasion might very well describe it best.
Numbered in the millions. I see in my minds eye a video I once watched.
Of army ants swarming, devouring everything in their path.

You're quite right - Native Americans I know are absolutely disgusted with these illegals "claiming rights" to THEIR land.

In my opinion:

Immigration suggests something legal and controlled.

Invasion suggests something illegal and rampant.

I choose the word invasion to describe illegal immigration in the United States.

It is never "immigration" when someone comes here illegally. It becomes an invasion when milions are here in that manner such as today.
