Again, be vigilant about the words used.

We don’t call every speeder an “illegal driver,” but we call immigrants with any status violation “illegal aliens” (no matter how minor and nonviolent the violation). If their only “crime” is a “status” violation, then that should NOT be grounds for deportation. Unless we also jail all speeders. Most non-citizens are trying to simply keep their families together and work.

A better word for “illegal aliens” is “non-citizen American workers.”

Also be vigilant about the non-speaking policy czars. These include chief strategist Steve Bannon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Bannon) and chief of staff Reince Priebus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reince_Priebus). These people avoid TV appearances for a reason.

Words matter.
