Skip to comments.How banning 3 useful words undermines immigration reform

On April 2, 2013, the Associated Press announced amendments to its style book, effectively banning the use of the word illegal to describe a person as in an illegal immigrant.
Why should a useful and descriptive word be banished? My Websters dictionary defines illegal as not according to or authorized by law and also not sanctioned by official rules. Blacks Law Dictionary, which is commonly used by lawyers and law students, actually defines an illegal alien as An alien who enters a country at the wrong time or place, eludes an examination by officials, obtains entry by fraud, or enters into a sham marriage to evade immigration laws.
I regard these actions to banish illegal as a concerted effort to blur the distinction between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants, as if their immigration status and U.S. immigration law shouldnt matter at all. I see these actions as in direct support of the on-going effort to enact an amnesty for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, and to prevent the application of current U.S immigration law to them.

Too many Democrats imagine they are dealing with pitiful helpless stateless refugees who will gratefully vote Democrat forever. Actually, they think highly of themselves and will probably carve out their own political future, and if that's with the Democrat party, they will quickly move to exclude Jews and blacks from the leadership positions.
There goes the neighborhood eh!
Or “people illegally occupying jobs American minority youths should have”...

“Illegal alien” is a government term. It means a foreign national in the U.S. illegally.
There are tens of millions roaming the United States as I write this.
President Eisenhower deported millions of Mexicans during the 1950s. So can we today.

Soon anyone who is on the continent will be a citizen, vote is set for the 16th of July, unless they stealth it through sooner, in any case it will become law.
