We’ve written before about how open-borders supporters carefully and successfully manipulated our language by branding long-standing terms such as “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” racist even though the terms are race-neutral.

The new politically correct term is supposed to be “undocumented.” Because immigration is just a matter of paperwork. Or no name at all, just a description of their living circumstances.

Politico posted  a late afternoon draft of the House GOP Standards for Immigration Reform.

This paragraph has an interesting title:

Individuals Living Outside the Rule of Law

Our national and economic security depend on requiring people who are living and working here illegally to come forward and get right with the law. There will be no special path to citizenship for individuals who broke our nation’s immigration laws – that would be unfair to those immigrants who have played by the rules and harmful to promoting the rule of law. Rather, these persons could live legally and without fear in the U.S., but only if they were willing to admit their culpability, pass rigorous background checks, pay significant fines and back taxes, develop proficiency in English and American civics, and be able to support themselves and their families (without access to public benefits). Criminal aliens, gang members and sex offenders and those who do not meet the above requirements will not be eligible for this program. Finally, none of this can happen before specific enforcement triggers have been implemented to fulfill our promise to the American people that from here on, our immigration laws will indeed be enforced.

And you thought “undocumented immigrant” was too politically correct? The GOP will jump even higher.

We’ve completely surrendered to the language of open borders. The rest is just details.
