or you just think that they might be or not illegals here?

The antennae. Or the green skin.

Only if they’re wearing a shirt that says “I’m an illegal alien.”

I can’t tell, I never assume anything about anyone. The only way I’d know if anyone was an illegal alien would be if the person told me.

Yes, if you ever see a six-eyed 237 pound green tentacled flatulent dude sucking blood from your mother’s neck I think your pretty safe labeling it illegal and alien, unless of course your mother is a consenting adult or you happen to fit that description yourself.

Nope. You might think you can, but you’d be wrong.

Illegal doesn’t have a certain look…hence the massive overflow of illegal aliens.

Considering just in my family we have a mix of illegal aliens, legal residents, and citizens and we all share similar genes and could be said to “look alike” I’m going answer with a big no, cuz umm….DUH? (sorry I never get to say duh, and just really wanted to say it)

I have seen plenty of people that look and act like a wide variety of illegal aliens, but they are actually American Born Citizens! So I would say that it really is hard to tell.

You would be amazed at how many Caucasian Canadians are in the USA illegally.

I read an estimate once (can’t remember exactly where) that one of every 29 persons in the USA illegally, is a Canadian.

I can tell. They all have the same look of perpetual sadness in their eyes.

Just the green ones with the big black eyes getting off of the silvery cigar shaped space ships.

what does an illegal alien look like?

shadling21's avatar

@jca – Answering a question with a question. Very wise.

I very much agree with Windex. Stupid question.

Knotmyday's avatar

Ask them if they are an illegal alien. “Are you an illegal alien?” might work.

cheebdragon's avatar

At random moments, yell “Immigration!” or “INS!”.......who ever runs away, is probably an illegal alien…
