This article discusses one Florida State legislator who is trying to get a bill passed that would ban the term "illegal alien" in any state documents. "I personally find the word 'alien' offensive when applied to individuals, especially to children," said Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami. "An alien to me is someone from out of space." She believes it is both offensive and degrading to use refer to a person as an "alien". She preferms the term "undocumented" "They are immigrants, through no fault of their own, not aliens." What are your thoughts on this?
