(Really--don't you get tired of referring to your fellow human beings with the epithet "illegal"? How is using this epithet any different than referring to people with the N-word?)
I can appreciate you point too, Ricardomath. But as long as there is a way to be "legal" comparatively, comparatively, it's a proper adjective.
In the post preceeding mine, the epithet "illegal" was used as a noun.
I'll believe that such use (whether used as an adjective or a noun) is legitimate when I start hearing it used habitually to refer to people who have let their parking meter expire.
