Speaking Wednesday evening at a forum co-sponsored by Univision and Facebook and held at the University of Miami, Mitt Romney shocked many on Twitter by referring to illegal aliens as illegal aliens.

In a tweet reporting on Romney’s remarks, Univision News helpfully translated the term to “undocumented youth.”

When hidden camera video of Romney speaking like a conservative at a fundraiser was released Monday night, plenty of Obama supporters were certain it was the final nail in the campaign’s coffin. Romney’s apparent refusal to pander to his audience along racial lines convinced them that he was yet again reaching for the hammer and another bag of nails.

Yes, why not use the technical term, DREAMers?

In contrast, the crowd of around 750 didn’t seem to object, and in fact cheered for the candidate. Reporters were quick to point out that student tickets to the event were distributed by student Republican organizations. (The school’s Young Democrats were given tickets to distribute for President Obama’s appearance, which will happen Thursday.)

Yes, #LatinosForRomney do exist.

Yet again- just like all these so-called “gaffes” the media is falling over themselves to breathlessly report- the only people that were put off by the phrase are buffoons who are voting for Obama anyway.

    People in this world are not allowed to vote in the United States, only American citizens that haven’t lost their rigth to vote. What part of illegal aliens is hard to understand. Why do we need voter ID? Cause people don’t know this fact? Are there American citizen that would like anybody to be able to vote, even llegal aliens from say Egypt, Iran, Spain, Scottland? Give me a break. Americans want to protect this country from the fraud and corruption that other countries suffer. The problem is with the immigration process, quotas and problems in other countries (see fraud and corruption above). Breaking the law isn’t the solution, fixing the process should be !

  • nc

    Until just a few years ago, “green cards” were titled Resident Alien cards. Now they call them Permanent Resident cards. But once you are issued one, it doesn’t have an expiration date.

    So millions of people who entered this country LEGALLY are “aliens” but those who came ILLEGALLY are not?

    • http://www.facebook.com/julielandlgutierrez Julie Landl Gutierrez

      I’m not sure what you are trying to say with your post, however, it is untrue that the “green cards” issued by the INS don’t have an expiration date, They DO have an expiration date, I believe it is 10 years from date of issue. Prior to the 10 year expiration, you may either reapply or apply for citizenship.

      • nc

        The 10 year expiration is a relatively recent rule change and not retroactive. My ex has been here over 30 years as a “Resident Alien” and never had to update his card.

        As to my point, the term “alien” is one used by our own government to describe non-citizens. It’s not a slanderous term, it’s a neutral descriptive. It’s the Dems that are trying to make it mean something else.

  • James Atkins

    The problem with liberals right now is they REALLY believe everybody now thinks like them. They don’t comprehend that 60% of the population identifies themselves as “conservative”. The only ones who are screaming that he is killing his campaign are the ones who were not going to vote for him anyway.

    • Michelle

      I’m curious where the 60% figure came from and can’t find any polls that show even near that number (46% is the highest I can find). Where can I get more information about the figure you provided? Thanks.

        • Michelle

          Tom – Not all Democrats considers themselves Liberals and not all Republicans consider themselves Conservative. When we think in terms of Conservative or Liberal, that discounts the extremely large block of moderate voters. A (D) doesn’t always mean Liberal, just as an (R) doesn’t always mean Conservative. I can’t find any poll (and I read quite a few) that shows 60% of Americans identify as a Conservative. What I do find is there are more Conservatives than Liberals, that much is consistent with all polls I read, but that number has never been 60%, the highest I found is 46%.

    • Inperspective

      Thanks Rafeal, I can respect that. The key word is “illegal”. I think the left wants to impose their new PC terms, “undocumented youth”, and “DREAMer”…. is so they can remove “illegal” sense so much of what the left does is lawless.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Making it more palatable.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      The word “alien” was in common usage for centuries, before we were ever using it to talk about folks from outer space. It’s meaning in this context is: relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        It may also have been mashed together from “A lien”, as in ‘un-a-lien-able’ rights. When you have a lien on your house or car, someone else has a stake in it. Most times a bank. ‘Unalienable’ rights in the Constitution means they can’t be shared/taken from you, because the government has no lien on those rights.

        “The etymological root is Anglo-French lien, loyen “bond”, “restraint”, from Latin ligamen, from ligare “to bind”. So an ‘alien’ is ‘unbound’, no citizenship.

    Illegal immigrant would’ve been better. Not a huge distinction, but one you might want to make at a Univision panel. I haven’t seen it mentioned aside from Ward and Univision though, and I follow several left-leaning outlets. If you can tell me who any of these tweeters are, I’d be shocked.

    • Todd Hill

      Immigrant is a misnomer in this case. Many illegal aliens do not come here with the intent of immigrating. The majority of them are here only to reside and earn money, but never intend to follow the documented path to citizenship.

      Additionally, replacing “alien” with “immigrant” soft-pedals the meaning and intent of the phrase. They are aliens (see the official USCIS documentation on the terminology for non-citizens) who are here illegally, hence illegal aliens. Romney was spot on to call it as he saw it. Enough with the mealy-mouthed platitudes.

        Thank you for the compliment, I wasn’t out to impress you,
        just writing the truth. Let me try to clarify it.
        The word ‘integrity’ has a connection to the mathematic term ‘integer’ , a whole, undivided number. Unlike Obama, Hilliry, Biden, Gore, and others i’ve heard speak to minority groups, Romney doesn’t adopt a fake accent, or pander to whatever gripes the group has, but he speaks the same message to groups of every color or creed.
        Thus, integrity.
        You should listen to his speech to the NAACP or Ryan’s speech to AARP as examples of integrity.

    Obama has played Latinos for a fool. But they should not feel lonely, he has done the same with blacks and other groups. Just giving them enough sugar to get their vote. He promised Latinos a solution the first time around. He had 2 whole years where he has the presidency, the house and the Senate. He only did what he did for dreamers to stop Rubio FROM SOLVING THE SITUATION, because he feared Latinos might vote for Republicans. He couldn’t have that. So he figured out a way to do something without solving anything.

    I will say this, they are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Mitt and missing horribly. They do not have the kitchen sink because one of their historical figures said something about ” if you can’t stand the heat…” Besides the only thing that Democrats can cook are the books, and cannot taste the bitterness of the fruits of their labors. Illegal aliens has always been and will always be the correct and used term. They are not ” sovereign territory challenged ” nor are they ” free range not US nationals “. Can hardly wait to hear Obama say to the Latinos ” you didn’t scale that, someone else helped you sneak into this country ” instead of calling them illegal aliens or as the DNC likes to refer to them as potential voters.

    Would the word parasite be more politically correct? Illegal alien refers to a foreigner in this country illegally. If you want to come here, get naturalized, pay taxes, then there is no reason to be offended. The term refers to all people here illegaly, not just one race of people. And to those of you claiming this is a white power term you need to educate yourselves on the origin of the USA. This country was formed by immigrants. This country is the most racially diverse country in the world. Millions come here for a better life. Many of them become legal citizens and contribute to society but many will commit crimes in order to survive. They will steal identities, property or even lives to make it in America. They will also steal from the government through what they think is free health care and college tuition but its not free, the legal citizens have to pay with the money they worked hard for. This is not a race issue, its more personal than that.

    So telling the truth is a bad thing? DREAMers ARE illegal aliens! lol
    I’m third generation in my family here in the U.S. and my great grandparents came here legally through Ellis Island.

    The only mistake I see here is the use of the wrong term. They are, and should be called, international criminals.

    I guess he hasn’t figured out that telling the truth makes you a bigot. Someone should explain the rules to him.

    “Illegal aliens” is a redundancy. Aliens are illegal. Immigrants are legal.

    Illegal is illegal, I’m a hispanic and I rather that politicians quit “sweetening” the labels to make us feel better.

    “Undocumentated immigrant” is ridiculous. It makes it sounds like they just misplaced their paperwork, instead of violating the law. There’s nothing racist or bigoted about “illegal alien”, illegal for lawbreaking and alien for foreign non-citizen. It applies only to immigration lawbreakers regardless of ethnicity or nation of origin.
