Illegal Immigrant: Don't Call Me "Illegal"

How about instead of calling them illegal immigrants, we call them invaders, less ambiguity that confusion about who the good guys are and who the bad guys are...because America WAS built by immigrants...people who moved here to become Americans, not just mooch off the generosity of hard working citizens.

Back in December, "undocumented Americans" were in the running to become TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year" and just two weeks ago, Democratic Rep. John Conyers referred to illegal immigrants as simply "out of status" Americans. Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas asked Congress not to call him "illegal."

Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and former reporter, scolded a congressional panel on Wednesday, saying that he should not be called illegal, and saying it is an insult to his family who brought him here.
