If you love wealth more than liberty,the tranquility of servitude more than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains sit lightly on your shoulders and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.
Calling Illegal Aliens "Undocumented Immigrants" is like calling drug dealers "Unlicensed Pharmacists"
From a correct legal point of view the term illegal alien is not synonymous with undocumented immigrant and to claim that it is indicative of an abuse of the English language.
The law in the U.S. and many other countries, much like our Catholic Faith and Catholic doctrine, is much involved with drawing proper distinctions where distinctions are merited. The mere fact that a person from another country is in the U.S. without any papers/documents to prove that he is here legally, whether his stay be he for a temporary time or a permanent time does not by that fact alone make his status that of an illegal one, i.e. illegal alien.
As for example, if a legal permanent immigrant one day accidentally loses his "green card" (which is not really green) he does not all of a sudden become an illegal alien even though his document is lost; no more so than you or I would lose our U.S. Citizenship if we suddenly one day lost our passport (if we had one in the first place) and our birth certificate, assuming we actually retain one in the first place. Likewise, a visitor from a foreign country with a legal temporary visa who enters the U.S. and loses his foreign passport with the U.S. visitor visa stamped in it does not suddenly become an illegal alien, although he could easily become both undocumented and illegal if he overstays his approved time of visit, whether it be 30 days, 90 days, or whatever.
The fact of the matter is that there are a substantial number of aliens in the U.S. who do not hold documents -- some never held them in the first place -- who nevertheless hold a legal status in the U.S. If you doubt my word on this you can consult any administrative U.S. immigration judge who adjudicates these matters on a daily basis.
As for drug dealers some are licensed pharmacists and some are not. Licensed pharmacists if they are honest and don't take themselves too seriouslly will tell you that, of course, they deal in drugs. What do you think they deal in? Used cars or groceries!
