Stop the political correctness

The July 25 article about Border Patrol Agent Anthony Anderson’s act of bravery is commendable but bears correction.

“Immigrants” enter the United States through ports of entry by presenting passports and visas and are then lawfully admitted to reside permanently in the U.S. while maintaining their immigrant status.

Enough of the political correctness! Anderson didn’t rescue “immigrants.” The people rescued were aliens attempting to violate federal law by entering the U.S. illegally, a crime punishable by six months in prison for the first offense and up to two or more years for subsequent violations.

Kudos to the agent for his courage.
