Immigration: Call them 'illegal'

I have been asked how to refer to people who are in this country illegally — as illegal aliens or by a softer term, like undocumented immigrants. I suppose as a legal immigrant to this country at the age of 4, I might have a different perspective from those who have not had at least part of those terms applied to them.

Wait a minute…I thought that as someone who wants our sovereignty respected that made me a racist somehow. But, judging by the author’s name and photo, he looks as if he’s of Latin decent. But, how can he be racist against his own kind? I’m so confused…

OK, sarcasm off.

This is a very lucid, intelligent piece that was 100% accurate and factual. I’m a little bit bummed that it is in the opinion section.

Props to the Sentinel for publishing both sides of the debate. That’s what good journalism is all about, especially in opinion pieces.
