image for Congress Reforms Illegal Immigration!

(Washington) - Following on the heels of the monumental failure of Congress to pass any illegal immigration reform, The U.S. Congress and executive branch yesterday decided instead to rename the problem and make believe it doesn't exist.

Under the new guideline, the federal government and its agencies will stop using the term "illegal immigration" and start calling it "population migration".

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, issued the statement, "That was easy. Now, illegal immigration no longer exists and, therefore, is no longer a problem for the United States. And, as a liberal Democrat, I am in favor of population migration".

In rebuttal, A spokesperson for the think tank, "Get Real, Washington", stated, "Call it whatever you want, it's still illegal immigration. And illegal immigration is still i-l-l-e-g-a-l. As for Nancy Pelosi and liberal Democrats, poverty and crime does not "migrate" to their high-rent neighborhoods!"

An un-named high ranking source in the Mexican government was quick to comment on the proposed change stating, "We want to thank Congress for once again doing nothing about illegal immigration into the United States. We like the new idea of calling it something else and pretending it no longer exists. That way, we can easily dump another 10 million of our poor, uneducated, undocumented "migrators" into the U.S."
