Everytime I see an article supportive of illegal aliens and illegal immigration as a whole they always use the word "undocumented." As soon as I see the word "undocumented" in a news article I know they are going to be supportive of illegal immigrants, so I stop reading.

Anyone else notice this?

Sometimes I use the word "undocumented" because I really don't want to hear pro-illegal immigration people start to cry and boo-hoo about them being called illegal. They really try to use that as a way to avoid the truth and a conversation about what really matters.

Yeah....and it is such a sad attempt to make them look like they just don't have those papers...you know..the papers you get when you are born in this country or when you are a decent human being who follows the rules and wait in line and pay a few thousand dollars to live here legally..

You know, those silly papers! They are just papers, aren't they? lol

The supporters of illegals like to sugar coat as much as possible to hide the reality.
For example how many sob stories have we seen where the attempt is made to paint the illegal as a victim of circumstance. The stories and their supporters would have us believe that illegals had no choice. That illegals are all honest hard working people the same as legal immigrants. If their case is so strong why do they work so hard to omit facts. ID theft and fraud are never mentioned. Tax fraud and evasion are never mentioned. Driving without a license is sugar coated or omitted from the story.
Why if these people are such outstanding additions to our society do we need to omit or distort the facts?
Why do these supporters resort to excuses when the subject of how many illegals are violent criminals is brought up?
Its simple really its all to re-enforce the lie that we as a society can't live without illegals. The reality is that there is no such thing as an an honest illegal. Honest people don't commit fraud. Honest people dont use fake ID's.

They clearly are aliens

They clearly are illegal

They clearly are undocumented

They clearly are immigrants

They can fairly be described as undocumented, illegal, alien immigrants.

Then everybody can be happy.

They may or may not be criminal.

Sure. It is a prime example of rampant liberal PC.

They often are not "undocumented" because they are quite willing to commit felony document fraud with the use of stolen documents. The very worst illegals have stolen social security numbers, US birth certificates, and all sorts of stolen documents, and they use these to take jobs American citizens most definitely would do.

They are still undocumented...that would be like claiming they became legal if they had phoney paperwork.

Does not work that way.
