Perhaps the most visible argument in favor of term limits in Congress, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) - who has served in Congress since 1965 - and known for uttering bizarre and offensive statements, has done it yet again.
The Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Immigration subcommittee, Conyers before today's hearing on potential "reform" legislation scolded other members in advance for calling illegal aliens "illegal immigrants" - calling them "out of status". Perhaps even more bizarrely, Conyers - twice - refers to illegals as "citizens":
I hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today, Conyers said. Our citizens are not he said, breaking off to correct himself. Our, the people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status. They are new Americans that are immigrants, and I think that we can forge a path to citizenship that will be able to pass muster.Here's the video:

Mr. Conyers must not realize that the Dixiecrats mocked black people years ago by calling them ‘citizens’.
Conyers is a man with criminals for constituents.
I totally agree Mr. Conyers. They are citizens. Citizens of whatever country they came from. They are here illegally and they need to be returned to their own country immediately.
They’re not citizens. Why is Conyers still in Congress?
Meanwhile mexican gangs are ethnically cleansing blacks from southern California.
His wife Monica Conyers, former City Councilwoman, served time in federal prison.
“Immigrant” implies legality.
The correct term is “alien”. They’re illegal aliens.
I doubt CONyers would be quite so friendly to Canadians if they were invading Detroit and driving blacks out by force and intimidation.
Time for a focused ousting of Conyers. Get a small team of people giving him the deep scrutiny until enough dirt is gathered to jail him. No wishy-washy congressional committee, just a good old fashioned crime trial.
You beat me to it. Parasites all. sd
Too bad Americans refuse to wake up to the government corruption.
The great generation stood by and watch these people spend their entire lives in government, as they became more and more corrupt and controlling. We now have GD dynasties with the country turning into an oligarchy.
A Constitutional amendment should have been passed 80 GD years ago declaring no one could hold elected office more than 8 years...Period!
That's it! No more bull shit!
The longer these people are in power, the worse, the more corrupt, the more controlling and arrogant they become!
Just look at our country!
This country better get it right real fast, or it's f'n over and won't even be salvageable. This should have been done decades ago for cripes sake...
I prefer Criminal Invader Parasites.
See post 15. Not Conyers exactly but we need to play hardball with these clowns.
I won’t call them illegal immigrants. I prefer illegal aliens.
they’re illegal aliens...and a few more words I’m not allowed to say.
John Conyers calls for border laws to be broken AND this long in the tooth politician is getting away with it. How can any elected American call for lawlessness...Illegal Aliens are law breakers. Mr. Conyers must know what crime is...his wife is a criminal.
