    Not really.

    It confuses illegal immigrants--those who would not take the trouble to stand in line--with the legal sort.

    Therefore, I much prefer the term illegal immigrants.

    In CA back in the 90's the left liked to call them "Undocumented Workers" or just "Undocumented." This makes it sound like they lost paperwork rather than breaking the law, and many are not working of course.

    They are, certainly, illegal aliens.

    But I am okay with the term "illegal immigrants," too.

    They are, indeed, immigrants--although of the illegal sort.

    And that is the key word: illegal.

    They are not "immigrants" An "immigrant" by definition is someone who is lawfully in the country.


    "Any person lawfully in the United States who is not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or person admitted under a nonimmigrant category as defined by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) section 101(a)(15)."

    So, there is no such animal as an "Illegal Immigrant". The word "invader" is actually more accurate.
