Illegals Protesting Being Called Illegals?

Maybe we’ll have burglars protesting to be called, “Object removal experts” next.

A small group of immigrants gathered in Woodbury Monday to protest the use of the word “illegal” to describe those who have entered the United States without documentation.

“By saying illegal, they’re assuming that we broke a criminal law,” said Jackeline Saavedra, 27, of Bay Shore, a Touro Law Center student who identified herself as undocumented. “Not everybody enters illegally.”

Coordinators said they prefer the phrase “undocumented immigrant.”

Osman Canales, 23, an immigrant rights advocate in Huntington who organized the protest, said using the word “illegal” criminalizes a whole community. “It’s a racist word against our community, so we’re just here to raise awareness,” he said.

Criminals don’t like being called criminals. Big shocker, there. Too bad it isn’t bothering them enough to convince them to go home — and if you’re an illegal alien, your home isn’t here.

    You are joking right? I am not reading this correctly or perhaps it is in another language. From what I, as a “legal American Citizen”, understand, if you are in MY country without proper documentation that means you are here, get this, ILLEGALLY. You know what I am sick of these people, really sick of them. They want to come here, fine get here legally, no back door bullshit! Enough, I’ve had ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    These illegals have some balls to demand to be called undocumented immigrants. They need their behigns thrown out of this country . They are criminals with big mouths. It’s time the American citizens demand these people be exported. The are illegals and if they don’t like it the can take the next boat out of here.

  4. Likewise, I’m sure Jack the Ripper prefered to be called an, “Unlicensed surgeon.” But, alas, we’ve gotta call ‘em as we see ‘em.
