Berkeley student govt bans use of term “illegal immigrant”

posted at 1:31 pm on November 9, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

Did I really even need to say this was happening at Berkeley?

The University of California–Berkeley student government unanimously passed a resolution banning the term “illegal immigrant” from the body’s official discourse. The resolution is the second such measure to be passed since former Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano took over as president of the UC system.

The Berkeley student government showed its support for the “drop the I-word” campaign, deeming the term “racially charged,” according to the College Fix. “The ‘I’ word is legally inaccurate since being out of status is a civil rather than criminal infraction,” the resolution reads…

The resolution offers alternative terms in place of the rejected term so as to not “dehumanize people,” such as “undocumented,” “immigrants without papers,” “foreign nationals,” or “immigrants seeking status.”

Ah, yes… America’s public university system. Always a hotbed of free speech and open discourse. Unless, of course, you want to talk about something which the Old Guard has determined to be “bad” for the social justice movement, in which case you will be censored. There was a time when this would have been viewed as truly ironic, since colleges were (in long bygone days) famous for breaking molds and expanding the language, often in ways which traditional value types found offensive. But having apparently won the battle, the time to circle the wagons and cement things into the new vision has arrived. So if we don’t like the way you refer to a particular phenomenon or segment of society, we’ll simply ban you from saying it.

And with that, when it comes to people who immigrate illegally, we’ll simply stop you from using the term “illegal immigrant.” It’s a breathtaking, bold move, you must admit.

They are correct – these are NOT “immigrants”.

These are illegals and criminals.

God damn this buffoonish traitor and all who’re with him.

But are they really “illegal immigrants” if there is no enforcement? I mean, it’s not like we’re doing anything about “illegal immigrants.” So, it kind of makes sense to just stop calling them that.

There’s so many laws on the books in this country, I’m sure I’m doing something illegal right now and I don’t even know it.

He’s selling the land to Iran, due to Iran threatening to drop the US dollar as an oil currency.

He’s selling the land to 40 million illegals. See guest on Magyin Kelly from last night. The borders are now open, open, open.

He’s selling the land with obama’care’.

Congratualtions USA. The majority brung/kept your Destroyer in Chief.

Also, the ‘climate’ bullchit is a diversion and his way of demonstrating that he’s still a god/king.

Is anyone else on the planet allowing themselves to be invaded by other countries? Remember the 9/11 report that was supposed to show us how to prevent another 9/11? If Mexico is so damned uninhabitable because of drug violence, corruption and crime wouldn’t it behoove us to be careful when admitting their citizens into our own country? I’m tired of this crap. If they are all innocent refugees then lets offer military help to root out the bad guys. I don’t see how illegal immigration is ever going to stop or be under any kind of control when all we do is let them come in and take advantage of us. American politicians and American leaders should do what they swore to do and protect and serve American citizens. They should not serve citizens of other countries. Period.

What’s that all about? Here’s a particularly outrageous part of his letter:

“As a moral matter … our nation cannot continue to receive the benefits of the work and contributions of undocumented immigrants without extending to them the protection of the law,” Dolan wrote. “Keeping these human beings as a permanent underclass of workers who are unable to assert their rights or enjoy the fruits of their labor is a stain on the soul of the nation.”

Dolan reiterated the bishops’ stand that immigration legislation includes a path to citizenship, reaffirms family reunification, deals with future flows of migrant workers and restores basic due process protections to immigrants.

.
That’s crap. Why is a religious official meddling in politics, especially when his religious organization is receiving millions of dollars in untaxed income? Provide all the private relief, that is allowed, that you want to provide but stay out of politics.
.
I also missed the part where he encourages Øbama to build the fence and establish other lethal and effective border protections to safeguard our country from criminal invasion. RC Church doesn’t pay taxes. You want to advise political leaders? Pay taxes.

Isn’t it great that at that storied progressive learning center of UC Berkeley, one of the things the students are so actively embracing is fascism – along with a contempt for the Constitution’s 1st Amendment.

At least they haven’t embraced enacting the death penalty for those who use the term ‘illegal immigrant’. I suppose they will follow the precedent of Hans Blix – and issue a strongly worded letter before sending a yammering mob to shout one down.

“The ‘I’ word is legally inaccurate since being out of status is a civil rather than criminal infraction,” the resolution reads…

Being “out of status” is still an infraction of the law, i.e., it is still illegal for a foreigner to be in the U.S. without authorization. Thus the term “illegal” is completely accurate and appropriate.

Plus, there is also the fact that illegal aliens routinely break other laws which are in fact violations of criminal law — violations such as tax fraud, identity theft, perjury on government documents, etc.

“Does Mexico practice what it preaches?-Larry Elder

First, Mexico put its military and police forces on its porous, zigzagged, mountainous, crime-ridden southern border with Guatemala. Chiapas – the South Carolina-sized southern Mexican state that shares the longest border with Guatemala – is Mexico’s poorest, most illiterate state. About Chiapas, one United Nations human rights commissioner said, “Mexico is one of the countries where illegal immigrants are highly vulnerable to human rights violations and become victims of degrading sexual exploitation and slavery-like practices, and are denied access to education and health care.”

Typically, when Mexican authorities catch illegal aliens, they place them overnight in a detention center, then bus or fly them back to their country of origin. Despite the fact that Mexico militarized its border and deported 203,128 illegal immigrants in 2004, many illegals get through by bribing corrupt military and police.”
