Illegal aliens not demeaning

On Dec. 2, Edgar Bustamante wrote a letter to the editor complaining about Lou Dobbs calling illegal aliens by the name of illegal aliens. First, these people snuck into our country without the knowledge and consent of our government. That was a crime and so they are illegal. Second, they are foreign to our country as we are foreigners in their country. If you have a dictionary handy, look up alien. You will see it is not insulting to call them illegal aliens.
