NBC News: ‘Undocumented Immigrant’ Term is Racist

Huh? So NBC News claimed [1] that the phrase and term “undocumented immigrant” is racist, which is a reason why the Texas State Board of Education rejected a textbook for a Mexican-American heritage course:

Since its submission, the book had been blasted for passages that painted Mexican Americans as undocumented immigrants and claimed that illegal immigration has “caused a number of economic and security problems in the United States,” including “poverty, non-assimilation, drugs, crime, and exploitation.” The book also said Mexican laborers “were not reared to put in a full day’s work so vigorously” and that they had a culture of “mañana.”
