Don’t “illgal alien” me, at least in NY [$250 K fine]

People who sneak in the USA  or jump the fence.?  What do you call them?  Illegal aliens? Watch out!

You can get a $250 K fine in New York using term ‘illegal alien’  — which is the legal term. Oh my!

The federal government of the United States refers to those who are in the country illegally as “illegal aliens” — at least four times in the statute books.

Section 1252(c) of the “Aliens and Nationality” laws is titled: “Authorizing State and local law enforcement officials to arrest and detain certain illegal aliens.” The section authorizes state and local law enforcement officials “to arrest and detain an individual who— (1) is an alien illegally present in the United States; and (2) has previously been convicted of a felony in the United States and deported or left the United States after such conviction.”

But in OZ:The city of New York’s Commission on Human Rights has decided that illegal aliens need more protection from the law than American citizens. So they passed an ordinance that not only makes it illegal to threaten to call immigration authorities on a suspected illegal, but you could be fined $250,000 just for saying “illegal alien.”

This is not The Onion.

You can call an American anything you want — any vile, vulgar, obscenity in the book — and not be punished for it. This ordinance would seem to grant extraordinary protections to those in the United States illegally.
