Oh, how sensitive, how politically correct. Let's not call them, as the law does, illegal aliens; let's call them undocumented immigrants. I'm waiting when it will be politically incorrect to call those selling drugs, 'drug dealers'. What will they call them? -- perhaps 'undocumented pharmacists'? And how about burglars? It's not nice to call them that either. How about 'uninvited guests'?
