    NYC Mayor Di Blasio: Illegal Immigrants will be allowed papers

     
    This past Monday, NYC Mayor Di Blasio states that he will allow illegal immigrants, people who knowingly broke out immigration laws, to obtain proper documents in order to stay in NYC, to obtain bank accounts, sign leases and to obtain basic services.

    While this sounds like a great humanitarian gesture, the problem here is that Mayor Di Blasio is openly violating the law under the Immigration Nationality Act, which prohibits individuals to aide or encourage illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. illegally.

    Now, also, the politicians are changing the language, including the media. Instead of "illegal immigrants" or "illegal aliens" now they're calling non-Americans who break our immigration laws "undocumented immigrants" or "undocumented workers." Recently, also, Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor said that calling some one an illegal alien or illegal immigrant was insulting! I wonder, which side is she on?

    Lets call things for they are, there is a reason they call a killer a murderer, or a thief a robber, an orange an orange. An illegal alien or illegal immigrant a CRIMINAL illegal immigrant or CRIMINAL illegal alien.
