House orders Library of Congress to maintain ‘illegal alien’

The House voted Friday to order the Library of Congress to keep using the term “illegal alien” to describe those who come to the U.S. without authorization, saying that as long as federal laws written by Congress use those terms, so should their official records-keeper.

The library earlier this had proposed changing, saying that despite being used in law, the term had “become pejorative” and needed to be axed. Instead the library said it would use “noncitizen” to refer to illegal immigrants, and “unauthorized immigration” to refer to the broader issue.

Republicans revolted against the change, and demanded in the annual legislative branch funding bill that the library use terms that reflect federal law. The code repeatedly refers to foreigners as aliens, including those here both legally and illegally, so that would force the library to maintain the term “illegal alien.”

Democrats balked and forced a vote, but the GOP prevailed on a 237-170 party-line vote.

    Yea the more I read this article the more I get pissed. Now the GOP wants a pat on the back for doing something that they shouldn’t have allowed in the first place. Maybe if they stopped ilegals from coming into the country which they have the power to do by cutting off funds we could give them a high five. RINOs stop acting like you care about this country. Your almost as bad as liberals trying to preserve power and riches. Get out and if you don’t like it leave the country.

  • Worried Vet says:

    To little to late. Maybe their trying to save their sorry ass from being fired.

  • Abel says:

    Good for them. Wish they would learn the difference between migration and immigration as well.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    To be a Democrat means you have a much lower standard of morality, less support for the rule of law and ZERO allegiance the US Constitution.

    1. Worried Vet says:

      It’s all about loyal voters to maintain power.

  • Retired says:

    Now if they would only make English the law of the land and stop wasting millions of Tax Dollars in every state in printing cost and court appointed interpeters

    Fkg Obozo is trying to re-write history. He’s acting like he’s on steroids to kill America.

  • Jose says:

    Even “illegal alien” is a mild description; I prefer ILLEGAL INVADER; ILLEGAL because no one gave them permission to come here or they overstayed their visa/permit etc.and INVADER because they invaded the USA and depraved a US CITIZEN of benefits meant for US CITIZEN ONLY such as housing, medical, education and even jobs. So ILLEGAL INVADER appears to be more appropriate or in Spanish mojado.

    1. Donnie Buchanan says:

      The National Guard should be called in to repel this illegal invasion. This is what they were established for.

  • teaman says:

    This is good news, for “PC” is nothing but PROVERBIAL CRAP! All things need to be called exactly what they are no matter whom it offends. If you cross the borders of our Nation improperly, you are an ILLEGAL CRIMINAL!!!

    1. Jose says:

      teaman: While I agree with your “ILLEGAL CRIMINAL” that cannot be used due to our current laws. The first crossover is considered a misdemeanor and after that it becomes “criminal”. I have a better name: ILLEGAL INVADER. ILLEGAL because they never received permission to be here or over stayed that permission (past a permit expiration date) and INVADER because they invaded the USA with intent to deprave the US CITIZENS of many benefits, including housing, medical, education, jobs, etc.

      1. teaman says:

        If what you say is true about “misdemeanor”, then it is coming from Obama, The Executive Anus and not immigration laws. Even if it is so, a cross over is still an ILLEGAL. I believe that if misdemeanor does exist in some form, it only applies to an accidental crossing, of course, that doesn’t happen these days. I do like INVADER!
        But more importantly, anyone who crosses our border ILLEGALLY and gets away with it, it becomes a direct slap to the face of everyone who has entered our Nation legally.

      Yea now they have to have safe spaces. They have been in control way to long.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    IT will remain illegal till we the people decide different, not the ones we appointed, they work for us!

  • Wolfman says:

    ….They had to vote to sustain the use of existing verbiage in laws, BY THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS ??? Next these imbeciles will pass a law that everyone needs to obey all the laws!!!!The prevailing long term whimsy of the Administrative, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the Government in regards to the lackadaisacal enforcement of the laws of this Country ….in essence has rendered all of them who arbitrarily violate/ politically skew the enforcement/ interpretation of our laws as criminals. Since the three branches of Constitutional Government are all lawbreakers….the Second Amendment becomes paramount for the actual Constitutional rulers of this Country ( ie. the law abiding ,Constitutional adhering , citizenry) , of which there are 10’s of millions, to give the ‘Election Process’ its due process…perhaps for the last time .
    The RIGHT to bear arms shall not be infringed!!! This RIGHT is broken everyday…. because the spirit of the citizenry has been broken. Honest law abiding citizens need to get our Mojo back in order to get our Country back….TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!! Vote as an intelligent citizen…. Progressivism ( ie Clintonian speak for subjegation of the citizenry) IS ACTUALLY A MEANS OF BRINGING US BACK TO FEUDALISM!!!

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Amen. It looks like its going to take the rising up of this country to stop this. God help us.

  • GrizzMann says:

    Seems that words mean things. The Democrats have adapted the NEWSPEAK dictionary.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      Yep, and the first word in it is Transgender!

      1. Donnie Buchanan says:

        Should be pervert.

        1. Retired says:

          That would be our Democrats.
