Illegal Immigrant Campaigning for Democrat in Washington State


From the AP/Fox News:

"SEATTLE -- When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters' doors, she's not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally. She knows it's a risk to advertise to strangers that she's here illegally -- but one worth taking in what she sees as a crucial election.

The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers -- many of them illegal immigrants -- canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-to-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi."

With all possible respect, "illegal immigrant" is an oxymoron, and an offensive one, at that. It is designed to make the criminal behavior of those who defy our immigration laws seem less important.
