UC Berkeley student government bans use of the term ‘illegal immigrant’

illegal
Fox News: The student government at the University of California, Berkeley has censured use of the term, “illegal immigrant.”
The UC Berkeley student government joined a similar body at UCLA by recently voting — by a margin of 18-to-0, with one abstention — to ban the phrase from its discourse, according to The College Fix.
The resolution passed by UC Berkeley’s student government reportedly characterized the phrase as, “racially charged,” and added, “No human being is illegal . . . ‘Foreign nationals,’ ‘undocumented immigrants,’ ‘immigrants without papers’ and ‘immigrants seeking status’ are examples of terms we can use that do not dehumanize people.”
The College Fix cites UC officials as estimating that about 900 students are currently enrolled in the University of California, which claims 10 campuses around the state, who are not legally residing in the U.S.
Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times reported in early September that UCLA’s undergraduate student government had approved a similar measure, known as the “Drop the I-Word” resolution.
The Times, for its part, added in its article chronicling the UCLA measure that it had advised its writers to avoid using the term, “illegal immigrant,” in articles unless employed as part of a direct quote.
“The Times, which also is restricting the use of the term ‘undocumented immigrant,’ has told its writers to use more specific language, such as: ‘He was brought here as a child by his parents, who entered the U.S. without a visa,’” the article added.
You want to eliminate illegal immigration? There’s a process for that. See here.
Ban any words you want proggies, doesn’t mean they don’t exist and apply to the real world. But whatever makes you “feel good”…I guess that’s all that matters.

They are worried about terms that “dehumanize” these criminals/squatters?! How about rape victim, murder victim, armed robbery victims and sex trade victim as dehumanizing titles. The libtards ought to try those on for size. I do realize not all ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS are guilty of these crimes, but I also realize many are!

Don’t say illegal immigrant, it’s “fugitive from La Migra”… hey, let’s be honest.

Aren’t they infringing on the first amendment. If someone wants to call them
sneaky ,, criminal illegal, aliens which they are. So much for free speech.

It gets worse. New UC President Janet Napolitano announced the U. of California system, which is supported by taxes from the bankrupt State of California, would give out $5 million for illegal immigrant students to obtain special counseling and financial aid.

So, the next time I get a speeding ticket, can I protest it on the grounds that I am an “UNDOCUMENTED speeder?” You know…I MIGHT be speeding, but I have produced NO documents to prove that I acutally drive at ANY MPH,,,,,and the US Traffic Cop can not prove that I actually exist b/c…hey. you will have to PROVE that I actually exist against documents that could or could NOT be legal (due to identity theft….usually from illegal aliens here in CA, etc) …so where does he say that I actually exist…..OMG…this is too much to think about. Feel free… Read more »
