My "immigration problem?"

I don't have an immigration problem.

What I do have is an ILLEGAL immigration problem.

You know, those people who sneak into our country at night, under cover of darkness, or throught tunnels, etc.

These people are overwhelming our schools, hospitals and jails.

Anyway, the key word you seem to overlook, as many others do, is ILLEGAL.

Let me help you just in case I still have not been clear enough.


il-le-gal  [i-lee-guhl]


1. forbidden by law or statute.

2. contrary to or forbidden by official rules, regulations, etc.: The referee ruled that it was an illegal forward pass.


3. Informal. ILLEGAL ALIEN.

[Origin: 1620–30; < ML illēgālis. See il-2, LEGAL]

—Related forms
il-le-gal-ly, adverb

—Synonyms 1. unlawful; illegitimate; illicit; unlicensed. ILLEGAL, UNLAWFUL, ILLEGITIMATE, ILLICIT, CRIMINAL can all describe actions not in accord with law. ILLEGAL refers most specifically to violations of statutes or, in organized athletics, codified rules: an illegal seizure of property; an illegal block (in football). Unlawful means not sanctioned by or according to law: an unlawful claim to the inheritance; to take unlawful advantage of the trading situation. ILLEGITIMATE means lacking legal or traditional right or rights: an illegitimate child; illegitimate use of privileged knowledge. ILLICIT which originally meant simply “not permitted,” now most often applies to matters regulated by law with specific emphasis on the way things are carried out: illicit conversion of property; an illicit attempt to control the market. CRIMINAL most often refers to violation of the statutes of penal as opposed to civil law. All felonies are criminal as are all crimes sometimes punishable by death such as murder, arson, and kidnapping: a criminal act. Unabridged (v 1.0.1)
