illegal aliens

Illegal immigration is the illegal entry of a person or a group of persons across a country's border, in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country, with the intention to remain in the country. The term "illegal immigration" is controversial and human rights organizations and the UN now use the term "irregular migration".
Illegal immigration, as well as immigration in general, is overwhelmingly upward, from a poorer to a richer country. Living in another country illegally includes a variety of restrictions, as well as the risk of being detained and deported or of facing other sanctions. If the status of being illegal is any way perceivable to host community residents, illegal migrants may additionally face visible or verbal disdain.
In terms of the number of Illegal immigrants living in a country, India hosts the largest number for any country in the world, with illegal immigrants from Bangladesh alone numbering 20 million.
