We are all humans living on the same planet, i would never call a fellow human an "illegal"

I see so much disrespect in that.

Illegal alien/immigrant simply means a foreigner is here in our country illegally. There is no disrespect in putting the correct adjective in front of alien/immigrant to distinguish between a legal immigrant and an illegal one. This PC game and feigned outrage by the pro-illegals is ridiculous and so transparent as to what their agenda is. Even immigraton law refers to them as illegal aliens.

Correct.

But we also describe people who commit crimes. An example could be rapist, murder, thief, identity thief, shoplifter, etc...

Uh; an illegal alien is a person who is in another country illegally. Sheesh!

Using a word that can be twisted into something it is not and them calling all use of it disrespect is sorta odd considering breaking laws to enter a sovereign nations territoriality is a better way to use the word disrespect...There is no question about this disrespect.....What can be done to settle up this disrespect? We also dont need any foreign interpretation of the english language.In the english language many differant words can be use to mean the same thing . You cant take words from the context of the intention of the sentence and any inferred meaning that is established. If you cant understand this it is you who needs to learn the english language and the different ways it is used. It is not a third world language if that helps you understand..

I don't think most people would care what a lawbreaker thinks. The WORST thing an illegal alien can do is to take a swing at an American for anything; he'd be picked up then deported.

I am sure if we found a bank robber and asked him if he liked being called a thief he wouldn't like it either. Your point is?

What killer wants to be called a killer? What thief wants to be called a thief? We can go on and on...
