Skip to comments.Ohio State lecturer bans students from saying ‘illegal immigrants’
Posted on 01/09/2019 4:01:17 PM PST by mgstarr
Victor Espinosa, a lecturer in sociology at Ohio State University, has been telling students that they are forbidden from using the term illegal immigrant to describe immigrants who did not enter the country through the legal method. Because drum roll it is offensive.
Mr Espinosa has written to at least one student telling them they will not be allowed to use the term illegal to refer to an unauthorized immigrant because it dehumanizes, marginalizes and racializes the people it seeks to describe.
In his wisdom and generosity, Espinosa grants that students may use the term illegal immigration since it describes a social process but you will not be allowed to use the term illegal to refer to a human being.
Welcome to the class! Very interesting post. In your post you used the term illegal immigrants. You should know that in this class, students will not be allowed to use the word illegal to refer to an unauthorized immigrant. The use of the term illegal by politicians and news media outlets to refer to an unauthorized immigrant, not only criminalizes undocumented workers, but it also dehumanizes, marginalizes, and racializes the people it seeks to describe.
In this class you can use the term illegal immigration, which describes a social process, but you will not be allowed to use the word illegal to refer to a human being. Starting next week, any assignment or discussion post that uses the word illegal immigrant to refer to an unauthorized immigrant will not be accepted.
Please see me in my office or send me an email if you have any questions about the organization of the class or assignment guidelines.
Thanks for taking this class!

He should, they are NOT immigrants, they are ILLEGAL ALIENS!
I wonder what Pedro would think about “wetback”.
I guess “Freeloading Bum from South of the border” is also out of the question.
He is correct, the proper term is: Invaders
Yes, here here, the proper term is ILLEGAL ALIEN! No more PCBS!
How does he feel about the term “wetback professor?”
Fraudulently documented foreigner.
Back in the 1920s, the KKK would have fallen on him and beaten him savagely.
We have come so far since then. Now he is free to wreak evil with perfect impunity.
Read the lede and naturally had to find out if my suspicions concerning a class in a subject that only pretends to be academic.
For a bull***t subject.
Oh well, when you really don’t belong even near a college, those are the courses to take. And if you play your butt-kissing right, you can graduate with a perfect GPA.
I would tell Victor to go pound salt. Since when was he elected language cop? Oh, he is self appointed? He can kiss my grits.
Forgot to add: “...were correct.” to that first sentence.
Gasp, I qualify to take a sociology class.
And get an A+.
As long as I do not say “illegal alien”.
His students dont all feel the same way. It made me feel as though my free speech as being violated, said Hannah Emerson. I was upset. He told me that the term illegal to describe individuals who crossed the border illegally was dehumanizing and racist. I feel like he essentially called me a racist, bad person when told me to refrain from using the term.
Hannah needs to tell the prof off that he’s a patriarchal, misogynistic, condescending, jerk who is guilty of mansplaining.
Sociology. Another non-science set of ramblings.
Phooey on him and his precious illegal aliens.
Another “university” teaching students nothing but pure, unadulterated feces.
Proper term is illegal aliens. I also accept foreign invaders. Unlawful border jumpers are also a proper term. Foreign lawbreakers.
That would have been my next question. If they cant call them illegal immigrants, can they call them illegal aliens? This chump is just another ass hat 🎩 among many.
Is Unlawful Invaders redundant? I would use that in response to the aggrieved ‘teacher”.
Criminal Alien Invaders.
