Well, we CERTAINLY wouldnt want to offend those who break our laws would we?
ILLEGAL ALIENS, it seems, will suffer hurt feelings if we CITIZENS continue the practice of referring to them as ILLEGAL.
They are henceforth to be referred to as UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS.
Not Illegal aliens. Not illegal immigrants.
NOT undocumented immigrants either.
So says the AP American Pravda.
What was it that Jon Conyers called them just 2 months ago?
I hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today. Our citizens are not the people in this country are not illegal. They are out of status. They are new Americans that are immigrants.
Out of Status.
NEW Americans that are immigrants.
Please, somebody educate me When EXACTLY did those, who are TRESPASSING ILLEGALLY in OUR country become NEW AMERICANS???
Lets say you own a home. You have gone out for dinner and, upon your return, you find someone you have never met in your LIFE, sitting on your couch, watching pay-per-view movies, eating YOUR food and drinking your fine wine.
Steady now dont hurt his delicate feelings.
Hes AN OUT OF STATUS HOME OWNER Isnt he?
YOU cant kick him OUT. You cant call the cops.
YOU will just have to DEAL with it. LET him live in YOUR house. If he gets sick YOU pay for his doctor. YOU pay for him to go to school and, if he gets into trouble YOU pay the fines, court costs and for locking him up Well, at least until the GOVERNMENT lets him loose.
The dirty rat robbing the bank?
Well now THATS just an UNDOCUMENTED withdrawal isnt it?
The next time you get pulled over for speeding or blowing a red light Just tell the nice officer that you dont HAVE a drivers license. YOU are an UNDOCUMENTED DRIVER. If the officer tries to write you a ticket for that call the officer a racist TELL the officer that being told that what youre doing is ILLEGAL really hurts your feelings and drive away.
Now, regardless of AP Senior Vice President and Executive Editor of Propaganda, Kathleen Carrolls statement, Our goal always is to use the most precise and accurate words so that the meaning is clear to any reader anywhere. The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term illegal immigrant or the use of illegal to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that illegal should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally, Department of Homeland Insecurity Director Janet Napolitano had THIS to say:
They are immigrants who are here illegally, thats an illegal immigrant.
Jay Leno calls them Undocumented Democrats.
Socialists just HAVE to change definitions of things in order for their nonsense to make sense even to them.
The definition of the word Is can apparently mean different things and dont even get me started on the definition of Marriage.
Now, in the socialist dictionary, Illegal means Mexican and Mexican is a race of people therefore, if you use the word Illegal to describe someone YOU are a RACIST.
Following THAT line of illogic
I believe in our founding document, the Constitution and, Constitution would be defined as American which would then be deemed a race THEREFORE Anyone referring to ME as a CONSTITUTIONALIST would be a RACIST.
You see, socialists want you to believe that undocumented workers, undocumented Democrats, undocumented IMMIGRANTS or OUT OF STATUS WHATEVER THEY ARE Havent done ANYTHING wrong and should be allowed to go about their lives and get in state tuition should they decide to learn something.
Socialists will tell you point blank that the vast majority of these people havent broken any laws or that theyre not criminals.
THEYRE IN OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY The second they set FOOT in OUR country they were BREAKING THE LAW.
They havent done anything WRONG??? REALLY???
Well, they say, we simply cant afford to deport 11 million people.
Is that so?
Lets see shall we. Last December, the Department of Homeland Insecurity Assistant Secretary of Legislative Affairs responded to a request for information from several senators, (presumably because the ACTUAL Secretary of that branch of indecision was busy editing a dictionary at the time) and told them, Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion to apprehend, detain and remove the nations entire illegal immigrant population.
THAT is a lot of money BUT
Back in 2010 The Federation for American Immigration Reform released THEIR report showing that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS were costing the taxpayers some $84.2 BILLION DOLLARS EACH AND EVERY YEAR for a variety of services like education, healthcare, law enforcement and social services.
So Lets do the math.
It would require $135 billion bucks to deport them and, over just the last 2 years since the FAIR report was published It has cost us $168.4 Billion dollars to let them stay BUT WE CANT AFFORD TO DEPORT THEM???
To be fair That $84.2 billion/year is coming out of STATE budgets but the same FAIR study ALSO noted that it was costing $29 BILLION/Year in FEDERAL TAXPAYER dollars to allow these ILLEGALS to stay SO THE FEDS COULD MAKE THEIR $135 BILLION BACK IN LESS THAN 5 YEARS IF THEY DEPORTED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM!!!
Not to mention what such a round-up and mass deportation would do for STATE budgets.
But We DONT want to hurt their feelings now do we?
So Socialists just dont like the word ILLEGAL as it pertains to those who enter our country ILLEGALLY and stick around to bleed our economies of taxpayer money.
They want to change the definition?
Okay How about THIS
Reform the LEGAL immigration system so that it doesnt take 10 to 15 years for those who want to become Americans to do so regardless of their point of origin Have them come in through LEGAL channels Have them present their LEGAL documentation and let them do what ALL of our ancestors did.
Learn our language, our customs and our values and assimilate into our society.
Guess what we would call them THEN
By the way, socialists
That deviant pervert that sexually assaulted your daughter even after she peed on herself because you would NEVER allow her to own a gun?
Hes just an Out of Status friend with benefits. Dont hurt his feelings by calling him a rapist.
I think we should OUT every congressman/woman AND senator and those in the administration who are willing to provide AMNESTY and/or a PATHWAY for these trespassers TO CITIZENSHIP and those trying to get a VA disability, or toss out an anchor baby. Americans should go on the attack against all of progressives (both sides of the aisle; Rubio and Graham included) who are trying to change the demographics of the country for political gain
They dont give a damn about the middle class. They are a disgrace to this nation.
Illegals Are NOT Illegal Just Because
Theyre Illegal Their Feelings Will Get Hurt If You Call Them Illegals
All true but I think even the term “illegal” does us a disservice. It sounds like they are mere American lawbreakers with no where else to go.
They are all citizens of another country and have every right and obligation to return there.
Undocumented crime stats.
Undocumented cases of welfare fraud.
Undocumented high school dropouts.
Perhaps we can just go back to calling them braceros......
Maybe SCOTUS should just drop ssm and redine illegal. That would take of it all. Of course that would mean we go back to Frontier Days. I’ll bet Judge Roy Bean could straighten this out!
We can’t call them wetbacks any longer. They have been here so long their backs have dried off.Most of them have even forgotten how to swim.
Why do we even bother to have a border. They can walk over any time they like.
Language change. It’s been going on from the time gay was not being used or/and not to be used for an expression available to all persons to describe persons merriment, happiness, etc. I had personal experience with people in government e.g. EPA using power/authority to define traditional/conventional terms in their new vocabulary for political purposes of control. This is the new thought control procedure for authority. All sounds like something you would expect from an Alinsky book or any of such books adherents.
While Congress has the Constitutional authority to establish laws of naturalization or immigration they do not have a true Constitutional authority to create blanket legislation that allows non citizens the rights of born or naturalized Americans. In other words amnesty is technically unconstitutional because it bypasses the laws which are established for immigrants to become American citizens.
FACT...if you are not an American Citizen and are here illegally...you are a felon...i.e., "without government permission and in violation of United States nationality law, or staying beyond the termination date of a visa, also in violation of the law." Enforce existing laws...insist your state enforce all laws especially those covering persons here illegally...
From now on they will be called criminal aliens!
The style isn’t the problem, it is the substance.
AP is NOT going to use the term “undocumented worker”. That wasn’t the point of their style change.
AP decided that they shouldn’t use the term “illegal” as a modifier for a person. AS they explain, they prefer to label behavior rather than people. As an example, they don’t use the term “schizophrenic”, instead they say “person diagnosed with schizophrenia”.
I’m not saying this makes sense; you can see that by this rule they wouldn’t say someone was a “diabetic” either.
But it isn’t about changing to “undocumented worker” (they would say “person lacking proper documentation to work”).
In fact, in the explanation, they say they will use the phrase “person who entered the country illegally”, or “person who is in the country illegally”.
As they say in the stylebook explanation: “ ‘illegal’ should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.”
So we could still see articles about people illegally in the country.
Personally, I think they miss the mark, because “immigrant” is itself a description of a person, NOT the person. So an “illegal immigrant” is not an illegal person, but a person who immigrated illegally”, which is what they claim they will use. IN fact, I think calling someone an “immigrant” would violate their new style guide, they would have to say “person who immigrated into the country”.
Go ahead. Unfortunately they are no longer afraid of being “outed” fro their treasonous behavior.
I was stopped just this morning by the police for making an illegal U-Turn. Cop didn't take kindly to my asking what was wrong with an "Undocumented Turn"...
Who cares what you call these interlopers/invaders? Merely, seize all their property, incarcerate them then deport them and their families back to their loser-country.
Illegal aliens are criminal aliens who shouldn’t be here, but that doesn’t necessarily make them bad people, not if they go home now.
Several years ago a local talk show host came up with “Crimmigrants” (Criminal Immigrants).
We are told the government can’t deport 11 million SQUATTERS. So exactly how do they propose to find millions of privately-owned guns?
