    This should win some kind of prize for dumbest post of the day. It's also a strong argument against using drugs.

    Tell me exactly how someone becomes an illegal human, and what this phrase would mean. Feel free to use paragraphs.

    It's an important distinction to make.
    Illegal immigrant is an immigrant that is in America illegally.

    Illegal =against the law.

    No problem if somebody sneaks in my house through a window or jimmies the lock on my door to be in my house without my permission he is what you could call an illegal human breaking the law.

    If someone sneaks into the United States or crosses the border without America knowing they are even here they too become an illegal human breaking the law.

    Other immigrants apply for a Visa learn to speak American and take a test to become American, these do not.

    You can not serve two masters if you want to be American be American you want to be the citizen of another country be in that country.

    Re: "Illegal Alien"

    That would be like saying that calling a buglar, as buglar; or calling a murderer, a murderer....offensive.

    I'd be offended to be called a buglar.

    The Knights Buglar were originally commissioned by the Vespoid Catholic Church in the 11th century. They were well known for their Crusades to regain control of the Holy Land (aka. the picnic table)
