The Word is ILLEGAL! C'mon, You Can Say It OUTLOUD...

Why doesn't the media use the word "ILLEGAL" when writing about ILLEGAL immigrants? And how can they use the term "immigrants' RIGHTS" when writing about people who come here ILLEGALLY??

From my viewpoint, seems like the MSM and the Damn Hillsitters are really talking about Mexican rights - ILLEGAL Mexicans.

Thousands Rally for Immigrants Across U.S.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Wearing a bright green T-shirt emblazoned with the word "Mexico," 18-year-old Marco Tapia couldn't wait to join the biggest march for immigrants he had ever seen. The Mexican-born high school senior was among about 30,000 who marched through St. Paul in support of immigrant rights, and among more than half a million people who rallied Sunday in 10 states. Dozens more marches were planned nationwide Monday.

"Hopefully this will change the way America thinks," said Tapia, a high school senior who is living illegally in Minneapolis with his mother and sister. "We're not criminals. We're just regular people like everybody else here." (emphasis mine)


"If we don't protest they'll never hear us," said Oscar Cruz, 23, a construction worker who marched in San Diego. Cruz, who came illegally to the U.S. in 2003, said he had feared a crackdown but felt emboldened by the large marches across the country in recent weeks..."


"We've got to get back in touch with the Statue of Liberty," said the Rev. Lawton Higgs, a United Methodist pastor and activist. "We've got to get back in touch with the civil rights movement, because that's what this is about..." (They're here illegally ~ what civil rights??)

Here are some websites you should know about to understand what's really going on in our country:

"Coordinated by the National Capital Immigrant Coalition in the metro Washington, DC area and hundreds of grassroots organizations around the nation, immigrant communities and allies will come together for the largest mobilization for immigrant justice in our nation's history.
The website is hosted by FIRM - the Fair Immigration Reform Movement, a project of the Center for Community Change."


The word I have a problem with is "ILLEGAL", not "immigrant"
