    "I hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today. Our citizens are not — the people in this country are not illegal. They are are out of status. They are new Americans that are immigrants," said Rep. John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat.




    "Out of status"? That's a new one!...:rofl:

    If they're immigrants, not citizens, and they're in this country illegally, then they're illegal immigrants.

    If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck...

    WTF is wrong with these people that don't want to call someone for who they really are!?!

    They crossed the border into the US, right?
    That would make them an immigrant, right?
    They also broke federal law by crossing the border without permission, did they not?
    That would then make them a felon, right?
    "Illegal Immigrant" fits nicely to describe this type of individual.

    Looks like a duck and squaks like a duck, well daum, it's a F'ing DUCK!!

    Democrats no longer believe in the rule of law. A lot of Republicans, too. Where have you all been?! There seems to no longer be any consequences for breaking it. What the hell, just do as you please.

    Conyers is one of our many enemy within.

    I like illegal alien because the person belongs in another country.

    These leftist idiots are too dumb to know who are citizens and who are not.

    I don't think it's a felony, surprisingly.
    For the record, I remember "*******" being the preferred nomenclature.

    Perhaps illicit, invalid, surreptitious, unsubstantiated, improper, or unspecified would meet Rep. Conyer's delicate semantic standards.

    So many illegals come in without swimming/boating/wading or otherwise crossing the Rio Grande that the term "*******" is too limiting.

    Of course. That's why the term has evolved into illegal aliens. :rofl:

    How it is that people such as Conyers don't have "Idiot" stamped on their forehead is beyond me.
