Dropping the I-word!!!

An FB friend shared this link and I know I'm guilty of using illegal immigrants/illegal aliens from time to time but this article made me think. The author is right, the I term dehumanizing, it has racist overtones, and judges and attorneys don't use it.  The immigration issue is a sensitive topic and everyone has their opinions and perspective but I don't believe it's a major shift to remove illegal from our vocabulary and start using undocumented immigrants.
