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."
That letter from a Birmingham jail was written to Christian Conservatives and Conservative Rabbis in the south.

Can't we all agree that the same people calling Barack Hussein Obamao a Marxist today, would have been calling Martin Luther King a Communist back during the Civil Rights era? God Bless the United States of Amerika!

Who are those "all other persons?"

Any country in the WORLD could be deemed vital to the defense of the USA and needed as a necessary 'power projection platform,' thus deserving billions of dollars in USA taxpayers dollars. Former Soviet Republics like Uzbekistan and Tajikistan get US aid because the US military used these countries air fields for supplying troops in Afghanistan. Colombia gets US dollars to fight the 'war on drugs.' Once again , any country would qualify for billions of US dollars under the guise of defense.

Many Tea Party people have been instructed to say "You have refused to recognize the distinction between constitutionally legitimate spending (national defense), and spending on unconstitutional expenditures." This is a distinction with no difference. Any country can get our tax dollars using this phrase. Bush I and Bush II sent aid to Russia to help secure their potential 'loose' nukes. http://millercenter.org/president/keyevents/bush (Bush I, April, 92) President Bush announces an aid plan of $24 billion to spur democratic and a free market reforms in the former Soviet Union. http://www.cdi.org/russia/johnson/5618-11.cfm (Bush II)
