You might call them illegal immigrants. Others like “Dreamers.” But Dem Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon has come up with a new euphemism: “community members.”
Interviewed on CNN this morning, Merkley, three times in less than a minute, spoke of “community members” when referring to people in the country illegally. He bemoaned the fact that “more than 100 lose their legal status each day.”
Merkley is so touchingly solicitous about granting legal status to people in the country illegally. But his respect for the rule of law evaporates when it comes to President Trump. Merkley, who has called for the president to resign, actually began laying the groundwork for the impeachment of President Trump . . . even before he was inaugurated!
