    Easy. They come here illegal. Does anyone ever call you a shortened version of your first or last name? Do you still know that they mean you even though they shorten it.

    But a criminal commits crime. An Illegal commits illegal entry, even though that still makes them a criminal.

    This is enormously disingenuous.

    Of course, the person per se is not illegal.

    But his (or her) presence in this country in this country is illegal, if he (or she) has not gone through the proper procedures to become a citizen--or, at least, a legal resident.

    And the person making the claim listed in the first paragraph knows exactly what is meant by the term.

    It is merely a cheap way--a very cheap way--to score a few rhetorical points.

    Can you imagine a country run on feelings rather than law?

    This is how they try to control the narrative.

    i love the insults......it shows the level of intelligence and civility. I expect no less........I know calling a human being illegal is just inflammatory language to rile the base. Illegal aliens. Sounds pretty scary. Too bad that bipartisan bill killed by Donnie proved what cowards the right is in congress..........Our leader has spoken we must kisss his a$$ but still complain about the HOARDS coming in all the time.....
