Illegal immigrant tells Congress
not to call him illegal

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 2/13/2013 12:56:50 PM

Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and former reporter, scolded a congressional panel on Wednesday, saying that he should not be called illegal, and saying it is an insult to his family who brought him here. “When you inaccurately call me illegal, you not only dehumanize me, you’re offending them,” he said. “No human being is illegal.” Mr. Vargas testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee alongside Chris Crane — a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and president of the ICE agents’ union — who is unable to arrest him under the administration’s new non-deportation policies.

How about tool, pawn, and/or Dem voter?

You can moan about being offended, but it doesn´t change the fact that your breaking the law, therefore illegal fits.

Why do these people get special treatment. Über elites treat them like house trained pets. Sorry, but the rest of us out here in real America pay our taxes, comply with the law. We have no representation in DC.

He is right. It would be simpler and more precise to call him a criminal. People who break the law are called lawbreakers, criminals, outlaws, felons etc.

Coming into the country illegally is actually a form of breaking and entering. If the same person broke into and entered a residence or business establishment and were apprehended, they would be arrested and charged with a crime.

This man claims it is an insult to his family to remind people that they broke the law by sneaking into the United States. But since they did break the law by sneaking into the United States, they can, and should, be called criminals. He should count his blessings. Illegal immigrant is actually a euphemism for criminal.

The only criminals are people who have failed to claim membership in some fashionable victim group.

Fat,old,white,male,tea party,veteran taxpayers are all criminals because the world has been divided into oppressors and oppressed.

Very exciting times if you´re a Marxist.

Mr. vargas, just shut up. Then consider what happens in mexico to someone who cannot provide adequate documentation. The answer is, they get kicked around first then sent to jail, then summarily deported, as mexico has the toughest immigration laws in this hemisphere.

FTA:

Mr. Vargas called himself an “undocumented immigrant.”

"Undocumented" means you have no green card or any other legal permission to be here. It means you´re an illegal alien, no matter your age or who brought you.

Here is the real reason why we are afflicted with propaganda stunts like the Vargas appearance before a congressional panel:

Liberals want to silence all criticism of protected groups, no matter how valid the criticism is. It´s called thought control.

The most of putting aspect of this spectacle is the absolute GALL of an ILLEGAL ALIEN to LECTURE our CONGRESS about the proper way to address HIM !!!

The arrogance with which they flaunt our laws is breathtaking !

But then again, the men and women who occupy their respective congressional seats are spineless, feckless cowards and free loaders for the mos part and not really deserving of any respectt. So I guess it´s a wash.

The illegal with a grievance complex is from the Philippines. Not surprised, given the wretchedness of that country. Why should anyone listen to him about what he wants to be called? Does he really think we owe it to him to not describe his immigration status as illegal if it is illegal. If he doesn´t like it, let him go back to Philippines, preferably the Manila dump, and make his complaints.

Every post I´ve read so far is missing a very important point. These libs keep saying it´s not a big "crime" to enter the country illegally, or overstay a visa. The point I´d like to make is the guy admitted to working, while here as an illegal, and therefore is guilty of either tax evasion, or identity theft, or both. Both are "criminal" offenses, and not just being here illegally. He is an identity thief. Charge him and put him in jail. Will anyone in the media try to find out whose SSN he has been using?

As #24 above said, just about every illegal alien who now has a US job, and who before getting that job did not have specific permission from the immigration authorities, has most likely committed a federal criminal felony by either falsifying the federal employee verification Form I-9 by using a false identity, some by even falsely claiming to be a US citizen, by listing on that federal form some sort of bogus, counterfeit, or fraudulent US identification documents. If any legitimate US citizen ever did that on any federal form, and was found out, you can safely bet that they would be criminally prosecuted and convicted of a crime.

Today the country is being run by educated idiots (Democrats) who have been able to fool over half of the American public who then voted for them, so what do you expect to happen?

FTA: “No human being is illegal.”

When I was much younger and my son was still a child, I found out the "state" would help me collect my past-due child support---if I applied for AFDC. So I went to the county office to apply. The little twit reading my application said, "It says here you aren´t receiving the child support from his adoptive father, who is his real father?"

I said I had court ordered payments from the adoptive father, she said "We need the real father´s name."

I started to say, "He is illegitimate, I was raped and don´t know the man´s name."

She interrupted at the comma and said, "He is a real child, no child is illegitimate!"

Semantics don´t change the facts, my son was born without a known father and criminal alien invaders are illegal migrants without government permission--in the form of an immigrant visa received before entry--to be in this country.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
