Immigrant has is too nice of a term for you.
It has to be extremely negative. ALIEN.
It is what it is, amc. Illegal alien is the accepted terminology for a foreign national that violates our sovereignty by crossing our border without permission. That's not MORE negative terms, that's the term that appears in the law books.

They are not making a good case for themselves with this kind of behavior.

You hit the nail on the head, Doc. Other sovereign nations, who have every right to defend their borders, not only want a 'dowry' up front, but one must prove they can contribute positive to the economy before they are allowed to naturalize. For instance, if I wanted to emigrate to New Zealand (and boy is it tempting after watching this crap) I'd have to have a citizen of that nation pledge 750k to my behalf before I'd be allowed in, in addition to being able to provide a skill to that economy that was deemed valuable. How many displayed in this video can claim either?

I am telling you, I am really starting to tire of this crap. We are under invasion, as far as I am concerned, and I want my borders secured, with "shoot to kill" orders given to CBP, if necessary.

It seems with every piece of legistlation pertaining to cracking down on the illegals and their enablers, the louder their howls.
Bear, with all the debating weve done on this forum, do you honestly seeing me get more "desperate"?

Do you see me paying all that much attention to the legislation, the political part of the debate?

Come on now.

Yes and they like to call White Americans "Gringos" Now that's negative, racist and perhaps even dehumanizing.

Gringo pretty much means foreigner. Calling a person "gringo" can be in good fun. I don't know how many people call each "alien" though.
I laugh when White American people call racism. The victim hat isn't a good fit.
