It Is an Adjective

I don't care where you stand on immigration.  Odds are pretty good, you descended from one.  I do, however, want to point something out.  People are not illegal. They may be here illegally, but being a person is not illegal.  Illegal is an adjective. Adding a "s" to illegal does not make it a noun. It makes you appear idiotic. Illegal means "not according to or authorized by law."  In most countries in the world, being a person is not unauthorized by law. People are legal.

It is your choice if you don't want to learn a foreign language for your undocumented worker.  There is going to be a couple of problems with this. Don't expect them understand you because to them you too are speaking a foreign language.  The other problem is that you knowing hired an undocumented worker.  Congratulations on admitting to a violating a Federal law.  You will still be idiotic after they are deported, but you, if prosecuted, could receive fines and jail time.  One builder who knowingly hired undocumented workers in Kansas now faces, if convicted, fines of up to $250,000 and 20 years in jail.  So now you are now a convicted boss who didn't get the work done he could have because he and his undocumented workers spoke different languages.

Makes perfect sense.
