Is the term “illegal alien” the Correct Term or is it Racist?

I’ve been reading that many people feel that the term ‘illegal alien’ is Racist, and wondered how Americans feel when being described as illegal Aliens in the Philippines, when they overstay their visa’s. Do they also consider it racist?
Who does actually consider it Racist and Why?
Some Activists say that No human being is illegal, but is that true? Many countries will imprison or deport people having entered their country illegally.
