Exactly. Just like they aren’t illegal immigrants, but rather illegal aliens.
The word “immigrant” is defined as “a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign country.”
Sneaking in here illegally to deal drugs, practice human trafficking, or earn money to send home is not immigration. Voting illegally is not immigration. Stomping on the U.S. flag is not immigration. Refusing to learn English is not immigration.
When we use the term “illegal immigrant”, we feed the Left’s “Waaah! You Hate Immigrants!” meme and we should all refuse to do that.

There’s also this from Chris Conover at Forbes on Aug 28, 2013:
It’s arguably the favorite myth of progressives, the oft-repeated claim that Republicans have no health plan. Hence, President Obama was fully justified in ignoring them and proceeding to enact a comprehensive health reform law on a strict party line vote—something completely unprecedented in American political history.

AKRON, OH—According to witnesses of the miraculous event, an amorphous clump of cells was instantaneously transformed into a beautiful, fully formed human baby the moment it was delivered at Grace Hospital Wednesday afternoon.
“Our little bundle of joy is so precious,” mother Hannah Bramer told reporters as she held her baby boy for the first time. “It’s hard to believe little Ashton was an unrecognizable blob of tissue just a few minutes ago.”
“I have no idea how this happened, but I am so happy,” she added.
Doctors who witnessed the occurrence claim it was nothing short of a medical miracle.
“The baby you see was indeed just a part of that woman’s body, moments ago,” the doctor who delivered the child said. “He is now clearly a separate, unique human being—just like that. We’re all fascinated, honestly. It’s astounding. We have no explanation.”
Good read below. I am not savvy enough to have actually predicted it, but after watching Lincoln (2012), it was more or less what I was expecting. If you haven’t seen this wonderful movie, I highly recommend you do.
From Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News and author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution —
Exactly two weeks ago, this author predicted the defeat of the American Health Care Act — and explained that it was a step towards the final, actual deal that will repeal and replace Obamacare.
President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions: the GOP establishment, conservatives, and Democrats. He must bring them together — to “deliver the goods,” a key rule in The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them “the downside” — and convince them they will fail on their own.
[CtH: This is what I saw in Lincoln … a Republican president determined to get his bill passed through a Congress divided into a hostile Democrat minority, and a two-faction Republican majority.]
The most difficult faction to deal with is the Republican establishment — not because they are politically strong, but because on policy issues like health care, they are convinced that they have all the answers and that Trump just does not understand.
So he let them make the first move …

The two photos they chose are iconic of the root differences between these two presidents.
- Obama has his hands in the same position a Catholic priest uses when he says, “Let us pray.”
- Trump’s hands are pointing at us, the people who elected him.
Donald Trump just posted this on Facebook:
Pleased to announce official approval of the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline. This is the start of a new era for AMERICAN ENERGY!
They don’t mean diddly, but they look so good on the shelf, you know?
And here’s the latest from the folks who can’t STAND IT that Hillary lost.
Chelsea Clinton, who recently reached the grand old age of 37, is getting a “Lifetime Achievement” award for her role as vice chair of the Clinton Foundation.
I guess in Leftie Land, when mommy and daddy give you a job with their corrupt “charity” organization, it means you ACHIEVED something special.
I wonder if the award is going to say “I PARTICIPATED!” on it.
I wasn’t able to find out how many hours she may or may not have worked. She reportedly took no salary, but according to Wikileaked Podesta emails,
“Chelsea Clinton used her family foundation’s cash to pay for her wedding, living expenses and taxes on gifts of cash from her parents.”
Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group, looked into the Clinton Foundation and concluded that it “operates as a slush fund for the Clintons.”
