Harry Reid: "Undocumented Americans"

Yes, he said it, and he put it on his website. Hot Air also has the video in case Reid's people pull it.

According to one of the most powerful elected officials in our nation, these are not illegal aliens, they are "undocumented Americans." To borrow a phrase from the global warming crowd, "the debate is over" in the mind of Reid and his likeminded cronies.

Us "documented" Americans can just to to Hades.

"America" is a continent -- two, actually. So anyone coming from, oh, say, Mexico, is an American. Canadians? Also Americans. Brazilians? Um...you get the picture.

As of 8:05am EST today, June 7th, the video is no longer on Reid's site. I searched his entire site using the word "undocumented" and all I could find was "undocumented immigrant"...so it would appear spin-control is in full swing on Reid's site.

Shocker! Well, it's still up at Hot Air.

When's the last time you heard anyone from any of those countries call themselves Americans? Interesting, though, how when European snobs complain about uncouth Americans on holiday, everyone knows who they're talking about...and it's not the Brazilians or Mexicans.

People from those countries DO call themselves Americans. In fact, if you watch a US or European movie with Spanish subtitles, they'll generally translate "American" to "estadounidense", because it makes a lot more sense to people from Central and South America. To millions of people, the word "American" is a lot like the word "Asian", designating a large region, no a particular country. My point, I guess, is that maybe it's a bit over the top to get too bent out of shape over this comment.

I wouldn't say we are that "over-the-top", as this comment fits with the Leftist mindset, i.e., it is just the sort of thing we would expect him to say.
