"Far too many Americans, unsympathetic to the damage words can have I suspect, will refer to the 48 percent of those who do farm work in the United States in violation of our immigration law as “illegals." We’re better than that, aren’t we"?

"Today, the impolite label is ubiquitous – it’s in newspapers and magazines, it’s used by pundits on political talk shows, it spews from the mouths of babes, and is uttered by the office water cooler whenever the issue of immigration reform comes up".

Well, "Garza" they are what they are "illegal aliens aka illegals". The rest of your article made me want to puke because it was nothing but illegal alien sob story stuff meant to demonize those of us for the rule of law and gain sympathy for illegal aliens. They are not net postives for our economy either, they are net negatives.

Note the age old lame argument of who will pick our fruits and vegetables in the article? Apparently, Garza doesn't know (or intentionally fails to admit) that we have unlimited visas for agricultural workers.

Not all migrant workers are illegal. They cross the border everyday to work and go back home to Mexico at the end of the day. If the work is further away from the border they work and live there for the season.

They ARE NOT the same as the illegals that come here with no intention of going home.

And the author of this article is defending the latter.

Garza: unless you're a Mexican; Mexico WILL treat you like an illegal alien if you're in Mexico without permission.

And that's why they're called Green Card holders or border crossers. But they aren't the ones asking for different labels.

So when will the shoplifters come forward and demand a more politically correct term be used for them? Maybe they should be called shoppers without cash or credit. And "embezzlers" sounds bad. Maybe we can start calling them employees with undocumented pay bonuses. Wife beaters could demand to be called something a bit more sympathetic, maybe husbands in need of anger management classes.
