Question by : Conservatives: Why do call undocumented immigrants “illegal aliens”? “Illegal” is uselessly vague. (“You’re under arrest.” “What’s the charge?” “You did something illegal.”)
“Illegal immigrant” is dehumanizing. Murderers, rapists, and child molesters are all legal persons who have committed illegal acts; but an otherwise law-abiding resident who doesn’t have immigration paperwork is defined as an illegal person.
And It’s contrary to the Fourteenth Amendment, which affirms that neither the federal government nor state governments may “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” An undocumented immigrant has violated immigration requirements, but is still a legal person under the law, as is anyone under the jurisdiction of the law. The equal protection clause was written to prevent state governments from defining any human being as anything less than a legal person.
I thought you cared so deeply about the definition of words (Marriage)?

“deny to any person within it’s jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws” That means ALL laws and all people including the residents and the laws on deportation of illegal aliens.
