I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that I don’t need to define first grade vocabulary words. Even those with a childish grasp on the English language know what a criminal is. Certainly, I don’t need to spell it out.

But, you would be wrong. Apparently, it does need to be explained.

Thomas Rodriguez, of Aurora, stood in Union Park wearing a shirt that said: “We are hard workers. We're not criminals.”

Once again. Crim·i·nal [krim-uh-nl]:

1. of the nature of or involving crime.
2. guilty of crime.

The immigration laws of the United States of America are documented in the Immigration and Nationality Act. If someone in this country has not abided by the letter of the law in that document, by definition, that person has violated the law. They are guilty of a crime.

What do we call someone who is guilty of a crime? A CRIMINAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The immigration debate has turned stupid. Morons have found a voice. Sadly, those voices are being treated as serious, intellectual commentary.

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
