"And while we're on the subject, they're not ex-pats they're immigrants!"

The OED says an ex pat is "a person living permanently abroad", whereas immigrate is "to come into a foreign country to live there permanently". So Gary "Fingers" Bankjob* living on the Costa del Sol is an immigrant into Spain, an expat from the UK, and somewhere on Scotland Yard's "most wanted" list.
