    •  AP had this to say about the term "undocumented". (0+ / 0-)
      The discussions on this topic have been wide-ranging and include many people from many walks of life. (Earlier, they led us to reject descriptions such as “undocumented,” despite ardent support from some quarters, because it is not precise. A person may have plenty of documents, just not the ones required for legal residence.
      Although it's not necessarily offensive, and I've used the term myself, AP rightly rejects it.
