  •  Well if you could get the US Govt and the NYT (3+ / 0-)

    to think of a different term that was technically correct and not offensive I'm sure they would be happy to oblige. When my wife takes the kids to school and forgets  her purse she's an undocumented immigrant but she most certainly is legal.

    You know there are other not so nice names for people who sneak into the US or come legally and overstay their visa. Illegal Alien is used because it was the value neutral legal term. The bad connotation has come from people not accepting the truth of someone breaking the law by being in the US.

    Maybe a little less high horse.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?
