Hi,

I came across a word when listening to the CNN Radio---- indocumated, which I could not find in the dictionary. So could you please explain it to me. Better give me some example sentences. Thank you very much!

It's not a word. That's why you couldn't find it in a dictionary. The word you heard was probably undocumented, which means, literally, having no documents. It refers to people from foreign countries (that is, non-citizens) who have no legal documents to prove that they are legally within the borders of a country. Such people are also called "illegal aliens".

Supposing that you are not a citizen of the U.S., if you move to the U.S. and live here indefinitely without any legal documents that prove you have permission to do so, then you are undocumented. (This does not apply to tourists who stay only a short time and then return to their own countries.)

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

What makes you think "indocumated" means the same as "engraft"? "Engraft" is a very specific scientific word dealing with bone or tissue transplants or plant cultivation. "Indocumated" is not a word at all.

See the word "indoctrinated"... Rev William Marrion Branham used it a couple of times in his sermons.
