Mexican rockers urge Latinos to combat racism in U.S. - Fox News Latino

Note how they refer to illegal aliens as "immigrants" and that every attempt to enforce our immigration laws is deemed as racist?

Fairfax – Mexican rock band Mana urged thousands of Hispanic concert-goers here to take a stand against racism in the United States and never forget where they come from.
Perhaps their efforts should be focused on combating the “real” racism in Mexico, and fighting to improve their country. Then, these “immigrants” could remain in Mexico and lead prosperous lives, without being subjected to rampant racism and discrimination.

A better analogy would be: fat shoppers are still shoppers. You see, fat is just a description of what kind of shopper they are. Illegal is the description of what time of immigrant they are.

No, the difference between a legal immigrant and an illegal alien is the former is here with permission, while the latter is here in violation of our laws. In other words, one is LEGAL and the other is ILLEGAL. Likewise, shoplifting is illegal, regardless of the girth of the shopper. Contrary to your belief, laws DO matter.

Yeah, they immigrated here illegally. They're still immigrants.

And after they are deported they won't be immigrants any longer. Nor will they be illegals. Win-win for them I think.

Immigrant implies permanent residency. Illegals are not permanent residents. They are subject to deportation at any time.

Analogy fail.
