How about "Uninvited Guest', Mr. Vargas? "Country Crasher"? "Homeland Invader"? Pick the one that hurt your feelings least. We all know that feelings are what counts, not law.

Back in December, "undocumented Americans" were in the running to become TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year" and just two weeks ago, Democratic Rep. John Conyers referred to illegal immigrants as simply "out of status" Americans. Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas asked Congress not to call him "illegal."

Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and former reporter, scolded a congressional panel on Wednesday, saying that he should not be called illegal, and saying it is an insult to his family who brought him here.
