AP: We Will No Longer Use the Euphemism "Illegal Immigrant," But Will Seek Out Ever-More Tortured Euphemisms

They're not going to say "illegal immigrant" any more, because, they claim (joining with illegal immigrant advocates who've claimed this for years) "an action is illegal not a person," which is just about the stupidest bubblegum I ever chewed.

So instead I guess they'll call them "unauthorized" immigrants, overlooking the fact that an act is unauthorized not a person, at least until the next mile on the "euphemism treadmill." Which just means that "moron" may replace "idiot" and then itself be replaced by "retard," but each word newly adopted in the euphemistic treadmill march will itself become "associated with negative connotations," because the word itself connotes something negative (at least something people wouldn't want to be themselves).

You can change "crippled" to "differently abled" but that's not going to stop people from noticing that it is better to walk than to be lame.

So I guess we're playing this game with illegal aliens.

Update: The NYT is now considering it as well.

20 By the way, the easy way around this is a difficult and clunky construction, such as 'illegally immigrating persons', which is what you'd do if you cared more about pointing out that the person is not illegal, but the immigration they're doing, is.

The prison ministries use 'imprisoned persons' over 'prisoners', but the reason for this is to aid in breaking the identification of the criminality with the person, one that no doubt hangs heavy on the mind of anyone in prison for a serious crime.

This other game is just a way to pervert and poison more words in our language so they are hard to think or use.

It's therapeutic. If you're trying to help murderers, you would employ language that separated their identity from their crime. Ministries reaching out to folks in prison do this because they're trying to help the people who want help.

If they do this (trying to change the language to separate the act from the person) it just means they directly support those persons.

That is to say, they are pro-illegal immigration.

As if we needed someone to tell us that!

At one point I remember "ghettO" being a forbidden insult since that was code for black and therefore racist. But then the Left started caring more about gays than blacks. So while they were trying to bannish "fag", "ghetto" made a comeback as an insult.

This is coupled with their self-styled image as rule-breakers and cussers a l George Carlin. So cunt has jumped in usage, but now it seems like the feminists are trying to shove that one back in the hole.

270 "Wetbacks" has been a racist term. No more.

See it referred to people who swam across the Rio Grande, which marked the international border between Mexico and Texas, hence their "wet backs".

It became a racial slur because it was employed against all Hispanics and Latinos and mestizos, implying that all such were aliens, outside the American culture, lesser beings drug in for manual labor. Highly offensive to American citizens.

Of course, now that the "Hispanic community" insists that such equivalence with illegal immigrants does exist, they can't pretend to be offended by a term suggesting such equivalence.

The Spanish word is "mojado", meaning "wet one". If you want to refer to "los mojados" you'll be perfectly understood.

This is hardline nationalism not racism. I have no care what the ethnic makeup of the United States is. I do understand that when the conduct between two nations is such, that nationals of one nation can roam the other at will, without regard for its laws or taxes, and nationals of that other nation have no reciprocal privileges in the first nation, the second nation is exploited by the first. I will not tolerate such exploitation and I suggest you don't either.

But this isn't for the larger sense. This is for the very specific time limited situation of helping to advance amnesty.

Stupidest thing I've ever read. Yes, only an action can be illegal, not a person. But the noun "immigrant" simply means a "person who immigrates." So the defining characteristic of an immigrant is that he or she "immigrates." That is an action. And that action can either be done legally or illegally, as the AP's own logic concedes.

So, using the AP's own logic, every time it used to say "illegal immigrant" it could now substitute "person who illegally immigrates."

Not sure what that adds in terms of political correctness. But it certainly tortures the English language.

"Unauthorized" is still negative, so this is not much of a win. I'm assuming they'll go with "undocumented"--which is more Orwellian and dishonest, but what they want.

It's like the government is being the bad guy because it's refusing to document these poor souls: "We're here, we exist. We're just not documented. And we would like documents, so that's not our fault."

376 At one point I remember "ghettO" being a forbidden insult since that was
code for black and therefore racist. But then the Left started caring
more about gays than blacks. So while they were trying to bannish "fag",
"ghetto" made a comeback as an insult.

415 Alternatively documented potential citizens.

they's still criminals when they beat you and your wife to death, steal your stuff and get drunk and wreck your car.

Most all of these folks are criminals in the lands they come from.

Most all of them are functionally illiterate in their own language.

Many can't write, most can't read or read well (think vocabularies in the low end of 5-10 k words compared to 35-55k for average americans, they weren't taught how and have no interest in learning now except by "monkey see, monkey do" rote learning on the jobsite.

Most come here to work for the drug cartels and then go back home rich men. It's like the '49'ers going to California. Not many struck it rich but if you did, you were set for life. and they were about the same demographic and same education level only from the east coast slums.

Were a treasure lode to be dug up and carted away. They don't care about being citizens. The only reason so many stay is because it would cost too much to get back OR they're being pampered and catered to here. Why go back to a mud hut in mud village?

Is that racist? I don't know. If I'd been born where they were, I'd be the same way only paler. I've worked with them and talked with them and listened to them. (and this was back when the economy was good what are they coming here NOW for?)

Any money the get above what they need to get by goes home. It's why Mejico lurves them because they send all them Yankee dollars back and spend them there. Plus it gets rid of the superfluous dregs that can clutter up a scenic vista so much.

450 Entering the country without documentation is a crime. So while most undocumented aliens are criminals, not all of them are. Many thousands of undocumented aliens entered the country legally at some point (with a temp. agricultural visa for instance) and simply overstayed their visa. That opens you up to civil penalties including deportation, but it's not a crime.

I understand that "illegal" does not necessarily mean criminal. But I can tell by the comments here that most people seem to think it does. The term "Illegal Immigrant" suggests the person is a criminal when they may not be.

Thus, the term "undocumented immigrant" encompasses all undocumented persons without implying that they all did something criminal. Because not all of them did.

/kraɪm/ Show Spelled [krahym] Show IPA noun 1. an action or an instance of negligence that is deemed injurious to the public welfare or morals or to the interests of the state and that is legally prohibited. Overstaying a lawful visa is a violation of the law, therefore a CRIME. No other country on this planet allows this, why should we?T

Posted by: OxyCon at April 03, 2013 12:24 AM (EbMxL)

455 Farmer:

Illegal behaviors (which can range from littering to murder) generally fall into one of three levels of seriousness.

At the top they fall into either the misdemeanor or felony level. Generally, misdemeanors (which are themselves usually split into misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors) are limited to punishments of a year in jail or less. Felonies can result in penalties up to the death penalty in some states.

All of these, from the lowly misdemeanor to the most serious violent sex felony are criminal offenses.

At the lowest level are civil infractions. These are illegal activities that do not result in criminal sanctions. Almost everyone has committed a civil infraction. I have. You have. Pretty much everyone has. Personally, I got a few traffic tickets in my youth. I once got a dog without a leash ticket, and I've had several parking tickets. These are not criminal activities and in all cases resulted in a mere monetary penalty. If you pull my criminal history report from the Washington State Patrol, you'll see I have no criminal history despite having committed several civil infractions.

Believe it or not, overstaying a visa (even by years) is in this latter category. You might think that's crazy. A person who overstays a visa by ten years is not committing a crime by simply being here. But that is the law and has been since forever.

________________________

Many illegal aliens, whether they crossed the border illegally or illegally overstayed a visa, commit other crimes while they're living here -- crimes such as document fraud, identity theft, welfare fraud, electoral fraud, etc. Those crimes are felonies. Illegal aliens rarely ever get prosecuted for these felonies, but they're felonies just the same.

For the "good" illegal aliens who are working (illegally) in the U.S., the vast majority neither file nor pay income taxes. That is also a crime, but again, it's one for which illegal aliens are rarely ever prosecuted.
