There is a world of difference between legal immigration and illegally breaking in
Meet Jose Antonio Vargas.*
Vargas testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, seated alongside Chris Crane — a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and president of the ICE agents’ union — who is no longer able to arrest him under the Obama administration’s new non-deportation policies — directed by former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano. She is now the chieftain of Homeland INsecurity.
Declaring “no human being is illegal,” Vargas, who contends that the term “illegal” is insulting, refers to himself as an “undocumented immigrant,” or “migrant.”
Undocumented? Not quite. Foreign nationals who have come here illegally have numerous documents. Stolen from unsuspecting citizens, even children, whose medical records provide a fertile ground for undetected theft. Counterfeit and fraudulent documents including driver’s licenses, social security cards and birth certificates are not in short supply. Providing such documents undergirds a lucrative black-market business, facilitating illegals as they establish themselves in American cities.
“In 21st century America, diversity is destiny,” said Vargas. “That I speak Tagalog — my first language; that I happen to be gay; that I was born in the Philippines — none of that threatens my love for this country.” This shockingly honest video (click link to view) blatantly displays the real destiny envisioned by such “immigrants.”
Last week, U. S. Rep. John Conyers, Jr. also warned colleagues against using the term “illegal immigrants.” Conyers said, “Our citizens are not — (then correcting himself) the people in this country are not illegal. They are out-of-status. They are new Americans that are immigrants,” the Michigan Democrat clumsily lectured his colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee.
Whew! We at Seeing Red AZ are in luck. Unlike the pro-open borders/amnesty proponents at the Arizona República newspaper that employs the word “migrant” in two headlines this morning, we’ve made it a practice never to use the terms “migrants’ or “illegal immigrants.” We prefer the more plainspoken and accurate term of “illegal aliens.”
