A reader says that his favorite immigration rock song is Illegal Alien, by Genesis.

Wikipedia says

The song`s lyrics are a lighter, humorous depiction of the frustrations an illegal immigrant faces, leading up to the chorus: "It`s no fun/Being an illegal alien". Even though the lyrics are intended as a satire and to be taken in jest, the song can rarely be heard on United States radio stations because of its perceived offensiveness toward illegal aliens.
I hate that—it`s legitimate to worry, up to a point, about offending racial groups, but it`s not legitimate to worry about offending illegal aliens.
