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.

Honestly officer, it was said out of love, love for my country.
We’re still allowed to say Illegal Alien here in PA.
I guess it’s back to using the endearing term “wetback” then!
I walked out to a ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN dollar ticket yesterday for parking too close to the fire hydrant.
Didn’t look it at all, maybe i was 7 and a half feet instead of 8
but ok if it deserves a ticket so be it
but 115 dollars!?!!?!?!?!
i can’t anymore
and with the 25 mph speed limit unless you’re using a camel you’re gonna get camera tickets
at least i do
it’s JUST NOT WORTH IT
i’m becoming worse than a ex soviet satellite
I’ve got family obligations now but once they are dealt with/over, I’m looking to GTFOH.
Its just a matter of time before this state becomes Cali east without the beaches.
The total Dem takeover sealed the state’s fate. People are just too stupid to not vote Democrat.
If it’s an appropriate term to fit the situation, screw them.
If you came here illegally, you’re an alien, and inside this nation illegally.
Illegal Alien is the most accurate term for it.
Oh when I threaten to call immigration and call them an illegal it’s out of love.
Love of country.
I could go on, but your turn.
What if you are motivated by Love?
And the cops would make the appropriate arrests without batting an even if it costs somebody their life...just like they did the poor bastard selling loosies.
Read all of Deuteronomy 28 and esp verses 43 through 48. See if that aint us now.
NYCs ban on what people can reasonably say is a violation of Section 1 of the 14th Amendment (14A) imo.
More specifically, Section 1 expressly prohibits the states from making laws that abridge rights that the states have amended the Constitution to expressly protect, 1st Amendment-protected right to free speech in this example, 14A expressly giving Congress the power to deal with such issues.
From the 14th Amendment:
"Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
H O W E V E R
We are still stuck with a worthless Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration that will predictably continue to ignore its 14A duty to make penal laws that discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections, freedom of religious expression and free speech compromised in relatively recent incidents.
The remedy for constitutionally failed federal and state governments
Patriots not only need to elect a new patriot Congress that will promise to fully support PDJTs vision for MAGA, now KAG, but also consider this.
New patriot lawmakers also need to promise to do their 14A duty to make penal laws that discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated rights.
Remember in November 2020!
They will of course claim every single instance its said is out of hate. They can’t handle hearing a factually truthful term anymore.
This is hypocritically fromthe same people who champion red flag laws and anonymous complaints to take away guns from anyone they decide to target with lies.
PA is nice. Gun laws not too restrictive. Let me know if you move, we can have a discussion about CCW choices.
Can you say it out of love for your country?
If you can’t say “illegal alien” then use the word, “wetback.”
Libtarded media doesn't like it, that's tough shit. I hope they all drop dead.
“Illegal Alien is the most accurate term for it.”
It is also a “legal term” and a “Constitutional” term. (alien) and they weren’t talking about space men.
This first started with radical women’s groups objecting to the use of “man” when using the term for BOTH sexes. (How many are there now?, I digress)
Fireman, policeman, mailman, etc. We took it seriously. Instead we should have said STFU!
EVERYONE understood when used in that manner it meant BOTH men and women. The “proverbial man” as in HU-MAN. It wasn’t SEXIST! Or is that “genderist now /s.
Now, the WHOLE camel is almost in the tent!
