TRIGGER WARNING: In which I say illegal immigrants are NOT undocumented Citizens, or Citizens of any type in the US, except for Citizenship in their Country of Origin.
For John, BLUF: A Path to Citizenship is one thing, a continuously broken Border Patrol is quite another. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Conservative Reporter Rob Eno, formerly of Lowell, points us to this News Busters item by Reporter Scott Whitlock, 7 September 2017.
Talk about twisting the English language into a pretzel. The Associated Press on Tuesday hyped fear about the end of DACA as it referred to “undocumented citizens” in Chicago.Here is the quote Mr Whitlock pulled from the Associated Press:
[Rahm] Emanuel spoke as Chicago Public Schools marked the first day of classes Tuesday. The mayor told students at Solorio Academy High School they “are welcome in the city of Chicago.” The Chicago Sun-Times reports that school officials say about a third of the school’s students are undocumented citizens. Emanuel said Chicago schools “will be a Trump-free zone.”Frankly, the only undocumented Citizens I know of are little babies who haven't had their foot print taken and their Birth Certificate cranked out. All others are in this country illegally. You are either a Citizen, a legal Immigrant, a refugee, a legal Migratory Worker or a Tourist (like those Canadians who will be driving to Florida soon to check in their mobile homes. All others are law breakers, trying to jump the queue and thus disadvantaging those seeking to come to this nation through legal processes.
And, as a side note, one third of the students in Chicago's Solorio Academy High School. That suggests a breakdown somewhere in the Immigration System. A third.
