One instance of the forestry service using an odd phrase does not mean a new official term has been created.
Besides, it's not like the forestry service is the arbiter of who is or is not in the country legally.

You think that someone in the Forestry Service would poke fun at the great mesiah?, thus risking their job?

Other than "illegals" and "illegal alien" I prefer the term trespasser or invader.

Political correctness =/= "the great mesiah", whoever that is...
