The term "illegal alien" has been used to dehumanize immigrants and divorce ourselves from thinking of them as human beings. For some, this may serve as a defense mechanism to avoid feeling sympathy for undocumented immigrants, many of whom are separated from their children or loved ones when they are deported. However, Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner, wisely stated that "No human being is illegal." We should all take care to recognize this ideal and avoid using the term "illegal alien."

And more. Am I to respect the Nobel Prize when it is assigned by what a person says, especially when they play class warfare, which is what Obama does, regardless of his nice words that he is doing otherwise. E Pluribus Unum is not his credo, even while he took and oath of office to that purpose. Americans are more polarized than ever, and it is his doing, but then consider who he has always hung with and his Pastor of 20 years.
How did all these Miss America contestants avoid the Nobel Prize, for generations?

Could not disagree more. Many a Holocaust survivor would disagree with Wiesel, and being a survivor does not give the man a halo or a crystal ball. We will never know the Truth that could have gotten to us from those that never even go to the camps, but were just shot.
Any human should feel sympathy for a parent and child separated, but there was a choice that parent made, in most cases, and in that choice there was a risk. They took it, as adults, and turned their kids into victims. Actually, it seems to me, they are teaching their kids that laws do not count for them and theirs, but only for others.

Twice Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have faced off in televised debates, and twice the Massachusetts Senate candidates traded blows over Warren's claim to American Indian ancestry within seconds of the opening bell. The Republican incumbent and his Democratic challenger have launched dueling campaign ads calling even more attention to the issue, and there has even been a mini-kerfuffle over the low-rent antics of a few Brown staff members, who were filmed war-whooping and tomahawk-chopping at a campaign event in Dorchester.

Plainly the question of Warren's Cherokee heritage isn't going away any time soon. I'll be surprised if...
