I pretty sure God calls them His children.

How about you, Roy. What do you think God calls them?

That group of people is largely illegal and illegal pertains to criminality. Who cares what they think about that?

Immigrants don't want illegal aliens here either.

I like this one. So what do we usually do with squatters? Evict them right?

again, you can call them whatever you want. but calling people criminals is not a winning political strategy in the long run.

Can anybody tell me what a person here without permission should be called. Not undocumented aliens for sure because so many of them do have all kinds of documents that only citizens can have. Maybe something more like what Conhyers likes.
Fence jumpers?

I'll have to check on that. Some aspects of illegal immigration are only punishable by fine, but I know other aspects are felonies.

That is what this entire thread is about. What should we call them? You can't call them citizens, immigrants, or green card holders. What title do you bestow upon them to identify who you are talking about?

Transnational squatters is the best term I have heard so far.
