Opinion Line Extra (May 4)

I agree that “illegal immigrant” is very poor English. However, “undocumented immigrant” is equally incorrect. If they are illegal or undocumented, they cannot be immigrants. They are aliens and therefore committing a crime by standing on U.S. soil. Law enforcement has no lawful choice but to arrest and either imprison or deport them.
