Names matter. What are we to call the 5 men accused of killing border partrol man Brian Terry Dec. 14, 2010? Are they immigrants without documentation? Immigrants seeking a Dream? Illegal aliens? Fugatives from justice?
What is their legal status?
The 5 men entered the United States with a plan to “arm themselves with fire arms”
Now we know their names: Jesus Rosaro, Favela-Astorga, Ivan Soto-Varraza, Heraclo Osario-Meza and Manuel Osorio-Arellanes who is in custody. There is a $1 MILLION reward for any information that leads to their capture.
Have you noticed how language has evolved to describe persons who illegally enter from Mexico? Illegal aliens became ‘immigrants without documentation’ and lately simply ‘immigrants not by choice’ when referring to those covered by the Dream Act. The language we use to describe persons entering without permission has ‘evolved’ similar to how President Obama attitude towards gay marriage ‘evolved’.
Some things we don’t know: Why leave guns at the scene of the crime? Why no way to trace the guns? Who in the Justice Department was in charge of Fast and Furious? When did Eric Holder first know about Fast and Furious? Why does it take 18 months to get an indictment out of Holder’s Justice Department. Is that because of Holder?
So what do you think we should call these men who shot and killed a border patrol person?
