At a recent press conference, Justin Trudeau called U.S.-based Haitians entering Quebec “irregular” immigrants, as opposed to illegal ones, even though they are illegal.
Canada’s Prime Minister, not some social justice warrior, said:
“There are no advantages to arriving irregularly to arriving, uh, regularly.”
And we don’t want to hurt the feelings of illegal immigrants – several of whom have criminal records, meaning not only did they come here illegally, but they were also acting illegally in their last safe haven.
Don’t say that though. That’s rude! Just call ‘em “irregulars” – like those discounted socks I mentioned.
Actually, maybe I should thank the Trudeau Liberals for adding a new word to the PC lexicon.
Next time a police officer pulls over the Menzoid-Mobile for doing 20 clicks over the speed limit, I’ll just tell the officer that I wasn’t driving in an illegal fashion, I was merely driving in an irregular way.
Why do I get this sinking feeling that the irregular descriptor only applies to society’s takers, not the makers?
