Dear Editor:
I'll "take another shot" at clarifying the terms immigrants and non-immigrants. I was only trying to point out that terms such as "alien", "immigrant", "non-immigrant", "student", etc., have specific meanings under the law. A "student" who is lawfully admitted, is maintaining the conditions of his/her admission and intends to return to his/her country is - legally - a "non-immigrant". A student who obtains admission through fraud (such as misrepresentation of a material fact) is not lawfully admitted as a non-immigrant and is, therefor, an "immigrant", under the law. The law says that the term "immigrant" means "every alien except an alien who is lawfully admitted as a non-immigrant" (not verbatim). The "9/11" murders obtained admission to the U.S. by posing as students; they were not lawful students. They were immigrants (legally) and they were terrorists.
