From serving on a federal grand jury, I can attest to the fact that our immigration violators are indeed classified as illegal aliens. There is nothing "redneck" involved. One is either here legally, or they are ILLEGAL. Don't we also classify citizen offenders? Don't we call those who steal, thieves? Those who kill with premeditation, murderers? Those who force sex on others, rapists? They are still human beings, but their actions have earned them an appropriate unlawful designation. If immigrants don't want to be referred to as illegal, they should obey our immigration laws.

Then what's the problem? Just follow the rules; if someone doesn't like it, we don't want that person here any way. The US gov't still calls illegal aliens: "illegal aliens".

Yes, I did. And my answer is the same. Do you believe everything someone tells you? Didn't your parents tell you not to take candy from a stranger?

You think that is the only source about the wall that Mexico has or had proposed on their southern border? Prove it wrong then. Um, I am in my 60's so kiddie analogies don't cut it with me.

Well, you might learn to offer some apologies. You'll find it's a healing experience.

Apologies for what and to whom? You never did provide any proof that Mexico did or has intentions of building a wall on its southern border.

I'll apologize for whatever you want, if it means getting this thread back on topic. I really don't like closing threads.
Yac.
