Florida double-speak

I love this line "They are immigrants, through no fault of their own, not aliens." Right, they were kidnapped in the middle of the night and dragged to this country and held here against their will and forbidden to return to their home countries under threat of death. Get real. The term describes what they are "illegal aliens" They are in this country in direct violation of our laws and they are not citizens of this country. There may be reasonable and humane reasons for them being here but breaking the law, they are. Pasting over that fact with "nicer" sounding descriptions is BS. You don't want the "illegal alien" label? Don't be one.
