Illegal = Racist?

Don’t call “undocumented” immigrants “illegal” immigrants – they might cry.  Or sue you.  Or whine to the media some more about how it’s not nice to label them based on the way they entered the United States of America (illegally).

“By saying illegal, they’re assuming that we broke a criminal law,” said Jackeline Saavedra, 27, of Bay Shore, a Touro Law Center student who identified herself as undocumented. “Not everybody enters illegally.”

Well, pardon me. So you entered legally but you what, overstayed your visa?  That’s illegal, too, sweetheart.
