From Wikipedia...

"In law, an alien is a person in a country who is not a citizen of that country[1] though definitions and terminology differs to some degree."

Of course they had to put the second part in as a disclaimer

The use of language to use, diffuse and confuse the public amazes me.

Immigration to this country is a LEGAL process. Immigrants to this country have legal permission to enter.

If one sneaks in illegally, they are not an Immigrant.

"Undocumented immigrants" is an oxymoron.

It's like saying my cat barked all night. It doesn't make sense!

Yes, and it would be difficult to find a single other country that has no immigration laws.

Like it or not, you don't get to just pack up your things and decide you're going to relocate yourself to some other country, nevermind it's laws, and be treated as well or better than the citizens of that country. The world just doesn't work that way.
