Abstract

“Aliens of extraordinary ability.” What does that mean? Breakdancing Martians? Who comes up with the language for these immigration categories? I’ve moved to Berlin, where the phrasing is even more laughable. There’s a wonderful category in Germany: geduldet. The “tolerated.” Just call them “we want you to go home as soon as possible,” which is not too long for a German word.
