In NJ is an undocumented immigrant the same as an illegal alien?

///In NJ is an undocumented immigrant the same as an illegal alien?

No.  It is similar but “illegal alien” is not a technical term – it’s the popularly used jargon, nowhere found in the U.S. immigration laws. Moreover, undocumented are those who entered with a visa but overstayed and those that entered without permission.  Whereas, illegal is just those who entered the U.S. without being inspected and admitted at a port of entry.  Because of its insulting connotations even though it covers a wide variety of types of people, at Andres Mejer Law we use the more accurrate term, “undocumented immigrant.”
