I thought we witnessed this walk in 1963, March on Washington. Freedom and jobs was the cause, civil rights for citizens of America. Did you hear me "Illegals" this was a march for American citizens who had a right to be heard. RIP Dr King.

Yes there is, and here is the definition: An alien ( non-citizen ) who has entered the U.S. "WITHOUT" Gov't Permission"' or who has stayed beyond termination of date of Visa. Google Illegal Immigrant and see for yourself.

Eddie,

The key word is legal. The word immigrant refers to people who have come to live here with proper legal process.

Aliens are people that live in other countries. An alien who is in the US without permission is an illegal alien.

They are not illegal immigrants because they are not immigrants, they are aliens, here illegally aliens. Otherwise known as illegal aliens.

Just because someone uses the phrase does not mean it's accurate. Most of the news media are in favor of open borders and try to mask the truth by twisting words and phrases like these.

There is no such thing as an illegal immigrant. The word immigrant refers to people who are here legally. A person can not be both legal and illegal at the same time.

There is no such thing as almost pregnant. There is pregnant and not pregnant. Not a little or close or almost. You can't be both at the same time.

Each person is here in the United States either legally or illegally not a little or almost or close to being legal. Immigrants are legal, illegal aliens are not. You can't be both at the same time.

I believe that Damaria has duel citizenship. If you are Italian American and have proof of your parents/grandpartents ext, that were from Europe, then you can apply for duel citizenship and become a European/American. You then can start enjoying some benefits of being a European citizen.
