The term "undocument workers" is so misleading. If of all they are illegal aliens. When they use the term "undocumented workers" naive people think they are just missing some type of form and when they add the term workers, we feel all warm and fuzzy because everyone likes people who work hard.

Why can't they be honest and call them illegal aliens?

I can honestly say they are criminaliens. The first thing they do when entering the country is break the law.

Illegally entering the country is the ultimate gateway crime.

They don't want the adjective illegal used because it calls attention to the fact that they have done something illegal. They don't want the noun alien used because they claim it references someone from outer space when anyone with half a brain knows it also means foreigner. Afterall, we have Resident Alien cards and it has nothing to do with space aliens.

Used to be we had 11 million "undocumented immigrants," now it's 11 million "undocumented workers." Are we to assume every single illegal here, from age 0 to age 100, is a worker? Or is this more statistical sleight of hand to try to obfuscate the REAL number of illegals here?

Workers is just another spin word by the pro-illegals to make the public think that they are doing something honorable.
