    It's sad to see that this fascistic rightwing terminology has been adopted by the left, like other sneers before it.

    This is a terrible way to refer to folks whose only non-compliance with the law is crossing a frontier without authorization. Do you call every DUI convict an "illegal"?

      a problem with the terminology, honestly.  It's a "short-hand" for illegal immigrant, which I think adeptly defines an immigrant living and working here illegally.  Doesn't mean I like the laws or the lack of a policy in place for currently illegal immigrants to have a path to citizenship; their continued existence within our borders and working is akin to an illegal activity, whether we agree with that or not.  Those are the laws on the books.

      If a drunk person is driving, they're doing so illegally.  Once convicted, they're no longer an illegal driver, are they?

      GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS!! Sic 'em! WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF
