* The ''Film/{{Machete}}'' films has this as an underlying theme, following the trend of exploitation films to be used to preach political aesops. The trope is spoofed in ''Film/MacheteKills'' when MasterOfDisguise El Camaleón (disguised as a Mexican) is about to be shot by rednecks who mistake him for an illegal immigrant. He removes his fake mustache and talks in his normal voice to show he's not Mexican, only for the rednecks to assume he's Canadian and shoot him anyway.

* The political satire group Capital Steps wrote a song entitled "Welcome to the State of Arizona" (Sung to the tune of "Hotel California") centering around a man in a large coat being confronted by a police officer at the border. Then the man casts off his coat to reveal that he's a Navajo, and proudly states that ''his'' people had been fighting against illegal immigration since 1492.

* ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' has an unusual Japanese version: Maria, an illegal alien, probably from [[AmbiguouslyBrown the Philippines, Southeast Asia, or somewhere farther off]]. She bought the identity of a male student in Itoshiki-sensei's class despite looking like she's ten years old or so, but doesn't bother to crossdress or otherwise act like him. Poverty and lack of education in her home country make Japanese high school very strange to her.

* Three of the five members of the main cast of ''Film/TwentyTwo'' are illegal immigrants, which is why the characters are reluctant to go to the police even as they are being killed off one by one.

** Of course the comparison also extended to the fear of being discovered, which is something Clark could relate to and then some. After all the laws regarding citizenship apply to humans or at the very least to individuals born on Earth. As do the laws prohibiting [[ExactWords human rights abuse]]. So quarantining and experimenting on a Kryptonian, for example, wouldn't be illegal.
