With the current state of immigration in the United States, immigrants may feel that they face discrimination issues in many areas. This can impact their ability to get a job, find a place to live, integrate into society and much more. In some cases, discrimination could even lead to arrest and incarceration.
You can see how common this is when you consider the fact that the term "illegal alien" was recently banned in New York City. Lawmakers note that it can be demeaning and discriminatory. It can be used to harass and stereotype people, often based on an assumption about their ethnic background or national origin.
