The Santa Barbara News Press is notorious for their poor headlines but this time they have gone to far!
Please take a moment to sign the change.org petition and let the New-Press know that you want them to retract their headline and use AP standards.

Juan, “undocumented” is the term ignorant or unscrupulous people (or fearful publishers) use to attempt to bamboozle the gullible into believing illegal immigration and legal immigration are the same thing. If they don’t have a legal right to be here then they’re – wait for it – ILLEGAL aliens. Working hard, even “time seven [sic] harder” doesn’t magically transform criminal invaders into legal residents.

Undocumented is the correct term. Even though they do not have legal right to stay here, but most of them still work as hard and at time seven harder than the typical American. You say Illegal is the correct term? Most of those who consider themselves American your Ancestors were also “Illegal” at some point they themselves also went through difficulties to gain their citizenship, they themselves were also here with no legal right to stay, they also had to work hard to get where they are now, I guess. So just because you are now “American” does not give you the right to feel superior to others.

I was reading an article on line entitled " Illegals line up for driver’s licenses" when suddenly I realized that some of the conclusions in these type of articles were written in such a direct way to my sense of being, I am being portrayed in many forms and fashions, for some I am merely a number, someone that fits the category and therefore part of it. In the totally neutral articles I will be described as Hispanic or Latin-American. For others not so neutral I would be Mexican-American. In the opposite extreme I would be described as Mexican, Mexican National, or simply “totally foreign”.
I have come to realize that not everybody who writes will have a thorough knowledge of Universal History and that most are totally ignorant of the History of the South-West.
However: Setting that side, I realize that how I am perceived has something to do with who I am talking to. " I spend, therefore I exist". This is where I come in simply as a number. The important thing here is, what brands do I buy, where do I buy, how much and how often.
Shop owners and big businesses are communicating with me in the language of Cervantes so they can attract my attention. They are succeeding. More and more businesses are implementing this relatively new idea, and guess what? Sheer numbers say it all, if you have not jumped in the wagon, YOU ARE FALLING BEHIND. On the other hand if you don’t like a service or product, DON’T BUY IT or CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION..
