    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    You seem to be trying your damnedest to equate "illegals" with some kind of racial connotation. As it was explained already multiple times it is not that kind of term, nor is it offensive.

    Give it up already.

    It's not that i see it as racially offensive, so much as I see it as dehumanizing.

    Given that illegal aliens can be of any race, its imposisble to assign any such connotation.

    So is the term "criminal" dehumanizing? "Convicted Felon?" "Convict?" etc etc.

    "Illegals" is just a term for a criminal, nothing more nothing less.

    I was talking about "alein", not "alien".

    Then, you are suggesting that the term Wetback is a REGIONAL term that speaks to geographic conditions on our southern border?
