What is an Illegal Alien?
By Brenda B. Covert

1     Sam was playing with Buster, his pet terrier, in the backyard. Taylor called and asked if he could come over.
2     "Sure!" Sam told his friend. "I'll be in the backyard. Just come through the side gate."
3     Sam heard Taylor coming down the walkway. Taylor hurried up to the gate, swung it open, and entered the backyard. He closed the gate behind him.
4     The two friends greeted each other. Then they began to play with Buster. What a shock they had when a third boy jumped the fence into Sam's backyard!
5     Buster barked. Taylor looked at Sam. Sam put his fists on his hips and said, "Hey! What are you doing?"
