[Ben]:Illegal immigration Discuss This [0 comments so far] View Comments
I'd like to offer a different term for illegal-immigrants.

Something about the term has bothered me for a long time. Perhaps it is the modern trend towards forgive and forget where the first part of the phrase is forgotten. With the big push from DC towards turning illegal-immigrants into just plain immigrants, perhaps it is time to adapt the terminology to clarify things.

It strikes me that a better term might be border-criminal. This clearly states the nature of the individual and the type of offense without granting "immigrant" status. They're simply a criminal living on soil that is foreign to them.

That's my idea. Who has a better one?
