I watched Bill O’Reilly respectfully make mince meat out of Monica Nova’s argument. She is pro illegal immigration and is apart of the “Drop the I-Word” campaign. Off course, the I-word is the word, illegal. She does not agree with this country’s immigration laws and views people who are against illegal immigrants as racists. Is that because of the influx of people from Mexico sneaking into this country? Well, as Mr. O’Reilly pointed out, illegal immigrants come from a variety of countries.
Plain and simple, People who do not enter this country legally are illegal. It is not a hate word. Illegal describes the status of those who sneak in and bypass this country’s lawful immigration procedures. Illegal also applies to those who do not keep up with their immigration paper work and procedures after legally entering this country. Personally, I do make a distinction between adults and children. Even though the children are also illegal, they are not responsible like their parents. Please note that Ms. Nova was legally brought to this country by her parents.
