Soon, they’ll drop “illegal” from “illegal immigrants.”

Then, it’ll be “undocumented immigrants.”

Then, they’ll just go the Harry Reid route and call them “undocumented Americans.”

Chris Kelly weighs in:

“Aliens” and “illegal aliens” are used in the U.S. Code many times. “Illegal immigrants” appears, as far as I can tell, only one time. And, while some might disagree, “immigrant” implies legality and in that way “illegal immigrant” is an oxymoron. It might also indicate that the Washington Times is starting down the slippery slope towards being like the Washington Post.
