In the year 2012 the more appropriate term should be undocumented. The term illegal immigrant or even worse alien is archaic and pre globalization.

Cool cover… very funny title and the irony of the phrase “undocumented protesters” jaja the funniest thing I’ve seen all day!

Neither “illegal” nor “undocumented.” They’re both legal labels of people, and journalism doesn’t frequently employ such labels, even when reporting on lawbreaking.
