Donald Trump has made it ok to call illegal aliens illegal aliens again



Republicans have been cowed into silence by the liberal media. At first it was no longer acceptable to call illegal aliens illegal aliens. Then they started to be called simply "undocumented" migrants, immigrants who simply lost their papers! Then they all were lumped together, legal and illegal, as "migrants", so if you were against the illegal ones, you were against all of them. And finally they became the ultimate virtuous class, called "Dreamers". Are American kids ever called "dreamers" by the media? I think not.

Anyway, Donald Trump has made it ok to say "illegal aliens" again, and the media is whining about it.

The Associated Press dropped ‘‘illegal immigrant’’ in 2013, soon after NBC News and ABC News. The New York Times announced it would encourage reporters and editors to ‘‘consider alternatives,’’ but ‘‘illegal immigrant’’ has shown up dozens of times in the paper in the two years since. The same goes for The Washington Post, CBS and The Wall Street Journal.

‘We need to keep illegals out,’’ Donald Trump said at the Republican presidential debate earlier this month after being reminded of his earlier claims that Mexico is sending rapists and other criminals across the border. The Fox News anchor Chris Wallace picked up the term in a question, and Mike Huckabee volleyed it back, claiming that the solvency of Social Security and Medicare was under threat from ‘‘illegals, prostitutes, pimps, drug dealers, all the people that are freeloading off the system now.’’

The more common phrase, ‘‘illegal immigrant,’’ also implies suspicion, but strip the noun from it and the entire identity of a person who crosses the border without permission, or outstays his or her visa, is reduced to that of a criminal: What rights could he or she be entitled to?

That's correct. Criminal aliens are not citizens, they have no rights.

And ‘‘illegals’’ implies a permanent caste, as if there is no possibility of becoming anything else — even if millions of immigrants in the course of American history have shown otherwise.

A minor point of distinction: those millions of previous immigrants came here legally. And I would hope there is "no possibility of becoming anything else" for illegals, except perhaps for emigrants.

So we are supposedly disempowering illegal aliens by calling them illegals. For years American citizens have been disempowered from calling them what they are for fear of being called racists. Americans had their jobs taken away by illegals, their taxes went to pay for illegals education and healthcare, and they were killed on the roads and the streets... by illegals. Not "undocumented migrants", not "Dreamers". Our right to protest them was disempowered when we were forced to call them people who "lost their papers" and were considered the supreme virtuous class.

And until Donald Trump came along, most Republicans were afraid to call them what they were. But now we have reclaimed the phrase. Donald Trump said the words, and he wasn't struck down in the polls, so we can say it too. Words have meaning, so this is an important victory, thanks to Donald Trump.

I still am very suspicous about Trump's sudden turn to Constitutionalism, given his past, but once again he is doing this primary contest a great service, pulling Scott Walker and other candidates to the right on this issue.

Congress can end birthright citizenship simply by passing a law


Now that Donald Trump is talking about ending birthright citizenship, other candidates who have never mentioned it before like Scott Walker are as well.

Scott Walker "hates poor people" because he wants to dismantle Obamacare


Loath am I to defend Scott Walker, but the New York Times is the pot calling the kettle black when it says that by dismantling Obamacare that Scott Walker (and Marco Rubio) will hurt poor people.
