Sure, we can drop the I word. But, we'll replace it with the C word. How about the word "Criminal?" This Novoa is a complete idiot! O'Reilly asked her to define her goals, and she couldn't even responded. Typical sheep! Those who cross into our country illegally, and criminal illegal slime! And, we will not call them by any other name! If they don't want to be called Illegals, then come to the US "Legally!"

I saw that segment of O'Reilly and she made me sick. An ethnocentric thru and thru just wanting to tone down the crime of illegal entry /residing on our soil. Illegal = against the law. Alien = a foreigner. So just what is racist about that term and what race are we speaking of? She couldn't answer those questions of course.

I think it is silly myself...BUT you anti's try to have it both ways, I'll explain:

A conversation about Hispanics will most likely morph into an Illegal Alien discussion, perpetuated by an anti (which is deemed as generalizing, and discriminatory). It will then be justified by the majority of illegals being Hispanics.

OK BUT

when called on using Illegal Alien synonymously with Hispanic, the anti backs down (like in this case with O'Reilly) and says Illegal Alien means ALL illegals (Asians, Russians etc..). Hence having it both ways...

The anti's have created this mess by constantly equating Hispanics to Illegal Aliens.

Not true.

Hispanics immediately feel guilty when illegal immigrant is used. Why do they feel guilty?
Every time a immigration law is passed someone or group reaches out to the hispanic community. They profile themselves.

What legal hispanic is leading a crusade against illegal immigration?

Your own thread as PROOF of this morphing:

Hispanic assimilation has failed

I'm thinking - "Oh cool an assimilation thread, this will be different from the numerous Hispanics = Illegals threads!! YAY"

Post 7 Chicagonut begins the injection of "Illegal"

Now thinking - "WRONG same old story"

I don't care what language someone chooses to speak at home but out in mainstream America why not speak this nation's language?
The premise of Hispanics = Illegal is set, and it begins... thread ruined, antis once again prove their generalizing and discriminating ways.

This thread is specifically about its own title. Where did I include this in the illegal immigration forum?

You did.

Agreed, and by post 7 an anti-illegal injected the notion that Hispanics are Illegal Aliens.

If you read post 7 Chicagonut was replying from a previous post on uncontrolled immigration. Chicagonut said "I am sure they aren't all illegal aliens" which was clarified.
