    We all know the value of semantics in the doublespeak that has been engineered to change minds in this issue. "Alien" and "immigrant" have very different meanings in this context.

    C'mon now. You say they have different meanings in this context, then offer no definition? You can do better than that.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You have a pretty loose definition of the word "live".

    the law defines an alien, to be anyone who is not a natural born citizen or a naturalized citizen....hence crossing the border illegally, makes one an illegal alien.

    someone can be a legal alien, if they are here and have legal documents.... for a purpose(1), here trying to become a citizen(2)


    (1) a "non immigrant" is someone who is visiting america for work or pleasure and must leave within a specific time, people who come to america work or pleasure only and over stay their time, without contacting the federal government to solve that problem ... are reclassified.... illegal alien..... from legal alien.

    (2) an "immigrant" is someone who via lawful channels is seeking to become an American citizen....

    Stabilize the person enough to deport them back to their own country.

    Hospitals are already required by law to treat everyone. There's no need for illegal aliens to receive government money.
