Undocumented, as we all know, doesn`t mean someone who`s lost his papers, but an illegal, who never had legal residence in the first place.
- There’s a lot of debate on what we call these people. Some say “illegals” is too harsh. Then there’s “undocumented worker.” What is that? I left my wallet in Mexico?
If you left your driver`s license at home, you are “undocumented:” if you`re driving without a license, you`re a criminal.
I remember hearing a story about a detective who was asked for spare change by a vagrant.
He showed the guy his badge, and aked him for his ID, and the vagrant said “Er, sorry, I left my wallet on my dresser at home.”
The cop said “I`ve heard that so often, that sometimes I think there`s a dresser somewhere in this town with a pile of wallets on it three feet high.”
He was wrong: it`s in Guadalajara.
