How Obama is Taking the ‘Illegal’ Out of Illegal Immigrants

I’ve been writing for this site for long enough to know that the phrase “illegal immigrants” really annoys some of you. “Illegal aliens,” you’ll say. “There’s no such thing as an illegal immigrant.” Well, there actually is. An immigrant is someone who changes residency from one country to another. So far so good. An illegal immigrant is someone who changes residency from one country to another illegally.

Well, Obama aims to change that. But just like he said earlier this year, he doesn’t plan on just using Congress to get things done. He won’t let a little thing like rule of law stand in his way, and he doesn’t think he should hold illegal immigrants to a higher standard than he holds himself.

Obama has written executive orders that provide de facto amnesty to illegal immigrants unless they are directly involved in crimes. According to a report by Sen. Jeff Sessions, nearly 98% of all deportations in 2013 were of criminals, people who were picked up in the process of crossing the border, or people who had already been deported before (many of whom were criminals).
