ABSTRACT
The author presents discourse on the undocumented immigration practices in the U.S. which focused on the unskilled Mexicans who had crossed the borders and entered the U.S. territory without legal documents. It tells that illegal aliens have diverse and multi-nationalities, but there is an overall tendency to equate illegal immigration with Mexican nationals who comprised more than half of the population of the illegal immigrants. It also explores on the European and Chinese migratory movements as contemporary with the Mexican undocumented immigration.
