Hilary Clinton drops the i-word

imagesHilary Clinton just vowed not to use the term “illegal alien” ever again.


She recognizes that this term minimizes the value of a portion of our society. This term insults millions of people who came here to make a better life for themselves but couldn’t wait for us to get around to fixing our immigration system, and who could blame them? We don’t do immigration reform in this country but once every couple of decades, and even then, it’s usually a president who ramrods a minimalistic version through after waiting forever for Congress to do its job.

Thanks Hilary. You just jumped to the top of the presidential candidate list for having compassion where most others show only contempt and blame.
