    It is to me, and I don't use it, but I find it interesting how Hobo is trying to make the two phrases comparable.

    Re: "Illegal Alien"

    OK, I'm a new kid on the block, so I haven't taken the time to read all the comments. I don't find the term offensive, but it is confusing when we have issues such as health care, education, and driver's licenses for illegal aliens.

    It makes this ole' country boy scratch his head and ask what illegal really means. Seems to me that if they are illegal, none of these other issues would really matter. Just pack them up and send them home. Isn't that they way every other country in the free world does it?

    I too am confused although illegal I take it means not lagal which is not lawful.

    However here we are deciding if Illegal aliens is offensive.

    How about LAW BREAKER?
    Tiki bar regular.
    My code, never take anything for granted always expect the unexpexted.

    I prefer the term moist alien, myself. Using the word wet is demeaning to wet people.
