Illegal or Undocumented

I heard Nancy Pelosi during a press conference the other day correct a questioner several times. Each time the reporter asked about illegal aliens, Nancy Pelosi corrected the reporter making it clear she wanted them to be called undocumented workers, not illegal aliens.

The only people I have heard using the term “undocumented workers” are people that want amnesty for illegal aliens. Why would anyone need amnesty for not being documented? This is supposed to be politically correct language that hides the fact that we have a lot of people in the United States that got here by breaking our immigration laws. No one can deny this fact.

I do not blame any of the people that got here illegally for what they have done. There are many reasons they do what they do and why many people that live in the United States want them here. That is okay with me. 

The problem we have is with our government. The President will not enforce the law, thus Republican congress people do not trust that any new immigration law would be fairly enforced. It is difficult to get anything done in any situation where you cannot trust the party you are negotiating with. If we had a President that upheld and enforced our laws, writing new immigration law would become easy and all the rhetoric we hear about illegal or undocumented would be moot.
