This article focus on the pairing multiple discrimination and immigration, exploring documentation left in political-institutional grounds, academia and people speech. A triple discursive trace is documented (institutional, academic, populational). Main results are: 1) greater use of adjective "multiple" within political-legal literature on discrimination, being more latent within sociological research; 2) the presence of multiple discrimination forms in institutional, academic and general population language (not always explicitly) ; 3) available statistics and surveys do not record the complexity of a sociological and social-legal phenomenon, requering qualitative materials as well (conversational primary discourses from native or immigrant population, and documentary elaborated discourses from institutions or academia).

Este artículo enfoca el binomio discriminación múltiple e inmigración, explorando el rastro documental dejado en ámbitos político-institucionales, académicos y en las hablas de población general. Se documenta la triple huella discursiva (institucional, académica, poblacional) del concepto. Hallazgos principales: 1) mayor uso del adjetivo «múltiple» en la literatura político-jurídica sobre discriminación, siendo más latente en la sociológica; 2) presencia de formas de discriminación múltiple en el lenguaje institucional, académico y poblacional (no siempre explícitas); 3) las estadísticas y encuestas disponibles no captan la complejidad del fenómeno sociológico, socio-jurídico, precisándose materiales cualitativos también (discursivo-conversacionales primarios de población nativa o inmigrada, y discursivo-documentales elaborados desde instituciones o la academia).
