An excerpt from an article written by Mike Cutler, former INS Special Agent. His bio reads: Michael Cutler is a retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) whose career spanned some 30 years. He served as an Immigration Inspector, Immigration Adjudications Officer and spent 26 years as an agent who rotated through all of the squads within the Investigations Branch. For half of his career he was assigned to the Drug Task Force. He has testified before well over a dozen congressional hearings, provided testimony to the 9/11 Commission as well as state legislative hearings around the United States and at trials where immigration is at issue. He hosts his radio show, “The Michael Cutler Hour,” on Friday evenings on BlogTalk Radio. His personal website is http://michaelcutler.net/.
"In 1948 George Orwell wrote “1984” a bleak prediction of the future that involved a totalitarian government that controlled its citizens with an iron fist.
It employed control of language that was described as “Newspeak.” "In 1984 the “Ministry of Truth” was the arm of the government that administered Newspeak.
Today the mainstream media has assumed the role of the Ministry of Truth.
Today, deceptive language is frequently written off as simply being “politically correct” language designed to not insult anyone while, the truth is far more treacherous. The deceptive language is actually the manifestation of Orwellian Newspeak.
The term“Alien” has been all but expunged from the immigration debate with the radical left calling that term “Hate Speech.” In reality the term “alien” simply means any person not a citizen or national of the United States.
There is no insult in that term, only clarity. The sort of clarity the immigration con artists are determined to eliminate at all costs.
Additional and more obfuscating false terms are used to describe illegal aliens. Besides referring to them as immigrants (thereby insulting and impugning lawful immigrants) they are referred to as “asylum seekers” and “migrants.”
The term “migrant” is not unique to aliens. Indeed Caesar Chavez who founded the United Farm Workers Union did so to protect American migrant farm workers.
Aliens who run the U.S./Mexican border are called “asylum seekers” however, while many will falsely claim “credible fear” only a very small percentage will actually qualify for asylum.
The great majority of these aliens don’t even show up for their hearings because they know that they won’t be approved, but it won’t matter. They just want to get into the U.S. and head for cities around the U.S.- especially “Sanctuary Cities” that shield them from detection.
However, for many Americans, however, the term “asylum seeker” generates sympathy.
Historically Americans root for the “underdog.” However, the true underdogs in America today are not millions of illegal aliens but American citizens who have been betrayed by their own government and suffer the worst consequences because of rampant and endemic immigration anarchy."
