Banning "Illegal Aliens"

I wonder what Tom Tancredo thinks of this one. No, this pinhead doesn't want to ban illegal aliens, just the words themselves. Good luck with that.
A state legislator whose district is home to thousands of Caribbean immigrants wants to ban the term "illegal alien" from the state's official documents.

"I personally find the word 'alien' offensive when applied to individuals, especially to children," said Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami. "An alien to me is someone from out of space."

She has introduced a bill providing that: "A state agency or official may not use the term 'illegal alien' in an official document of the state." There would be no penalty for using the words.

In Miami-Dade County, Wilson said, "we don't say 'alien,' we say 'immigrant.'"
Well, those who abide by our laws, we call them what they are: illegal aliens.
