    Please find the link yourself. Unable to do on my Nook.

    By making this word no longer part of describing undocumented immigrants (illegal alien's) will now allow illegal's to be on the same level playing field as American citizens who right now have priority or first choice if applying for government contracts within the state.

    ONCE AGAIN, illegal's are going to be treated as legal citizens when competing for said contracts.

    Do any of you see this as being fair? I know I don't. Once again, if aliens want to be on the same playing field as American citizens, let them leave and apply for legal immigration status. It seems that the snowball running down hill giving illegal aliens rights to one time services for citizens is picking up speed and adding to its momentum more and more rights once meant for American's

    It has to stop, or to borrow a phrase from Ann Coulter's new book, it will for certain be "Adios, America!"

    I thought I would share the definition of "alien" for those in this thread who have demonstrated with much clarity they do not know what that word means in the context of people.



    Full Definition of ALIEN

    1
    a : belonging or relating to another person, place, or thing : strange
    b : relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government : foreign
    c : exotic 1
    2
    : differing in nature or character typically to the point of incompatibility

    I don't like the word "alien" in this case, anyway, because I think the truth is more sinister.

    I prefer border criminals or invaders.

    But I do object to the politicization of language.
