The argument against the term “illegal immigrants” is that human beings are not themselves illegal, their actions are.

Immigrants who enter the US illegally are no longer illegal immigrants in this PC world.

Ok, so what do we do about the probem?

Do we:
a) treat them like citizens and open the borders to others.
b) try and send them back and secure the borders.
c) document them, and try and assilimate them into tour society while we secure the borders.

While the country is running a deficit of a trillion dollars a year, millions of Americans are unemployed a record number of people are on food stamps; we argue about what to call people who come into our country illegally, and do nothing about the problem these people have created.

It's all about votes and political power. No one addresses the country's ills anymore.
