Abstract
Calling certain immigrants Illegal Aliens in this nation founded by uninvited, yet initially welcomed Europeans would be ironic if it were not a perennial dehumanization of one immigrant group by another. 
The story of America is replete with all manner of invasion, conquest, plunder, enslavement of one people by another, theft of property and of children, and ultimately—formal strategic warfare and genocide of those deemed by official government policy as undesirable, expendable, and to be eliminated by any means necessary. 
It is time to understand that we are all Earth citizens, deserving of humane treatment, one and all.
