Michelle Malkin: Video: Harry Reid said what?
"12 million undocumented Americans" The concept of American citizenship is dead. Sen. Harry Reid drove the final nail in the coffin with his floor statement yesterday, in which he referred to the 12 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S. as "12 million undocumented Americans." I've heard a lot of stupid euphemisms for illegal aliens, but that one takes the cake.
Watch the video, currently featured front and center on Reid's website.
Previously I've mentioned the "undocumented" and Steve Sailer had column called The Ultimate Euphemism for "Illegal Alien, " in which he found several people referring to illegals as "citizens."
The most prominent of those was George Bush, who in the days before 9/11 was saying
”Remember, we’ve got hardworking citizens who are willing to walk 400 miles of desert in blistering heat to find work.” [BBC News | US and Mexico agree immigrant plan, August 10, 2001]
But even he didn't say they were American citizens.
