    Um, when you break the law in entering the country, you are an illegal immigrant. That takes up alot of words, so we shorten it to "illegal" . On the other hand, if you come here legally, you're either known "Joe" or a "resident alien", which is actually kinda a cool phrase. :p

    You make a good point. Instead of saying someone made an illegal lane change, I will just call them an illegal.

    So if a white guys grew up on a farm in Mississippi, or grew up watching Brooklyn destroyed then he's less likely to be racist?

    A person making an illegal lane change isn't perpetually barred from the road. A person in the country illegally has a status as an illegal immigrant. But, as I said before, you are free to call them illegal immigrants if the noun/adjective thing offends you. Or, if you insist on the whole "undocumented" thing, then we can, for consistency's sake, refer to drug dealers as undocumented pharmacists, rapists as undocumented lovers and thieves as undocumented income redistributors (since community organizer appears to be taken). Also, Kidnappers should be undocumented child care workers, murderers can be undocumented executioners or undocumented exterminators, vandals can be undocumented decorators (although you guys have already started calling them artists, so that euphemistic change may be redundant), perjurers and other perpetraters of fraud are undocumented fantasists and liberals will continue to be known as idiots.

    I've forgotten mine a few times.....Usually a nice cop will run your name and everything is OK.

    It makes you an illegal driver. If you get pulled over and the cop runs your record and determines that you are not licensed, you are subject to arrest and your car can be impounded. Do you consider illegal entry to the United States a less serious offense than illegally operating a motor vehicle?
