Calling an illegal immigrant an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling someone who is breaking and entering into your home an "undocumented tenant".
This is coming from a person who believes illegal immigrants are not worth our time or money to prevent and, if we werent a welfare state, I'd be pushing for open borders.
@trianglman @freemo I get what you're saying but at the same time undocumented immigrant sounds passive to me. Like the immigrant in question just packed their passport in the wrong bag or something.
Illegal immigration is a problem because there are laws in the US defining a legal process in order to immigrate here.
The only reason I can think illegal would be fitting is because an immigrant of questionable origin entire presence is illegal. Illegal seems to mainly be an adverb, illegal turn.
