Rush Limbaugh likes to say that the Left will tell you what they fear.
And they fear the term Illegal Alien.
Language is very effective at driving popular opinion.
That’s precisely why the Left tries to control the language we use.
It isn’t Gay Marriage; it’s “Marriage Equality.”
It isn’t Abortion; it’s “Women’s Healthcare” and “Choice.”
And they aren’t Illegal Aliens; they’re “Undocumented Immigrants.”
The term illegal alien makes these guys apoplectic because it’s the truth.
It strips away all their saccharine BS and lays bare the reality of the issue.
The term Illegal Alien reminds everyone that these are foreign nationals in the US illegally.
Leftists want to succeed in lumping legal immigrants and illegal aliens in to the same group.
There’s two reasons for this:
First, by doing this, they hope to smear Republicans and President Trump as being “anti-immigrant.”
And second, their entire narrative depends on convincing Americans that there is no difference between an immigrant and a foreign national in the country illegally.
By continuing to use the term Illegal Alien, we throw a wrench in their plan.
And that is precisely why they hate it.
So keep on using the term.
Frankly it is far more powerful than “illegal immigrant.” Because even that term assumes them to be immigrants of some kind.
They’re not “Dreamers.”
They’re certainly not “undocumented citizens.”
And they are not in any way, shape, manner or form “immigrants.”
So keep using the term Illegal Alien.
Never surrender it.
If for no other reason than it makes these insipid Leftists all manner of upset.
