Laura Ingraham traced the progression of politically correct euphemisms for undocumented Democrats illegal aliens on her show today. It is only one example as to how the Democrats love to rename things in order to slip unpopular realities past the American public. It goes a little something like this:
It started with "illegal aliens" and moved on to "unlawful aliens," and then it became "illegal immigrants," then "undocumented immigrants," then "undocumented citizens," and now, if Senator Dick Durbin gets his way, they will be called "dream act students."
Note how this language reconstruction can be used against any American who opposes foreigners that illegally reside in the United States. It will go something like this: "You don't want to take away their dream do you?" or "Republicans are dream thieves."
Democrats see the opportunity to pick up a huge block of votes, and their poo-pooing of the law with ever changing labels will help them with their mission.
