AP Tosses “Illegal Immigrants” — Paving Way For Legalization Efforts?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on April 4, 2013

According to Huffington Post, last year considerable pressure was placed on both the New York Times and the AP to drop the use of the words “illegal immigrant”. The New York Times public editor even insisted that the words were an appropriate description for how it has been used.

Now, AP is doing a political flip flop, and reversed course on using the legitimate terms, while the New York Times remains firm in its insistence that “illegal aliens” accurately describes the invading individuals.

America is not a nation that should have to apologize for protecting its border from an invading force, because the invaders feel they are being slurred. What do you call terrorists who blow up buildings? They are terrorists!
What do you call people who engage in arson to burn down homes? They are called arsonists! So let’s get real, and stop the politically correct nonsense. We can call people who cross American borders “illegal aliens” and not some watered-down, political milk toast phrase that seems nice, neat and meaningless.

They are lawbreakers — call them and treat them as they are, for what they have done to ignore America’s laws in open defiance. The nation is on notice.
