Skip to comments.City Bans Calling Someone An ‘Illegal Alien’ Out Of Hate
Posted on 09/28/2019 11:40:01 AM PDT by Enlightened1
Its now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an illegal alien when motivated by hate.
The restrictions violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Halls Commission on Human Rights.
Alien used in many laws to refer to a noncitizen person is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as other,' reads one passage of the memo. The use of certain language, including illegal alien and illegals, with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.
The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate.
A hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would offend hotel guests or make them uncomfortable, reads one hypothetical.
An Indian immigrant family complains to their landlord about mold and cockroaches in their unit. The landlord tells them to just deal with it and threatens to call ICE if they file a complaint in housing court, reads another.
A store owner tells two friends who are speaking Thai while shopping in his store to speak English and go back to your country, reads a third.
The Commission on Human Rights made clear that the directive is, at least in part, a rebuke of federal crackdowns on illegal immigration.

Just make the call instead.
How about calling them “illegal alien” for accuracy, not “out of hate”.
Federal immigration law uses the term illegal alien.
When these feel good radicals start doing the same thing then we will stop calling illegal aliens for what they are.......illegal aliens. The gall that these idiots would ban illegal aliens being correctly called for what they are but they can call our President any name in the book, smear his character and try and destroy him......it’s outrageous!
It’s Great when a city decides for you whether to move or not :)
I like autumn and winter too much to move south.
But I’m about ready for PA
Gonna look at a few this week
New York City goose steps to a different drummer.
Yeah well, we aint Congress, were Noo Yawkers! You got a problem widdat, pal? /s ;)
“Just make the call instead”
You have the right idea.
” a call to immigration authorities”
So it’s against the law to call the police?
Its Great when a city decides for you whether to move or not :)
We have friends and a relative, who pulled the plug and moved, from up and down the west coast (Seattle/Portland/SF area and San Diego.)
Yeah it’s smart for some of these east and west coast cities and states to drive taxpayers away :)
They will be left with welfare folks, homeless, LGBTs, illegal aliens....
Did I leave anyone out? :)
That’s quite a group to build a city or state on.
government entity banning speech, what a quaint notion. When i was a kid other kids called me fat. i wish they would have gone to juvie. But any father said, he would kick my ass if I complained to him again.
So 1st amendment not recognized, nor can we now quote or use terms in current laws?
And de Blowsthehole has done such a great job running NYC I don’t understand why the whole country doesn’t want him as president....bwhahahaha
Godspeed. That car in your rearview mirror will be me soon.
A hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would offend hotel guests or make them uncomfortable, reads one hypothetical."
Foreign nationals here unlawfully can "offend" hotel guests with their speech, but citizens in the community can not "offend" the illegal aliens with speech.
Yet another example that illegal aliens are superior to citizens according to these psychopaths. They get our 1st Amendment protections...and we do not.
There really is a new Revolutionary war going on, just isn't a 'hot' war...yet.
We used to have something called the First Amendment.
Waiting for the ACLU to file suit.
I just shorten to illegals. I correct anyone who starts calling them immigrants and tell them they are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens.
