Justice Department: They're Not 'Undocumented' Immigrants, They're 'Illegal Aliens' — So Say So

The term favored by liberal “news” outlet is “undocumented immigrant.”

But isn’t that like someone saying they’re just an “undocumented neurosurgeon”?

Of course it is, and there’s no such thing as either.

So the Justice Department is putting an end to the namby-pamby euphemistic language intended to legitimize people who sneak into America illegally.

The Justice Department has instructed US attorneys offices not to use the term “undocumented” immigrants and instead refer to someone illegally in the US as “an illegal alien,” according to a copy of an agency-wide email obtained by CNN.

According to the email, the Justice Department uses terms in the US Code to describe an individual who is illegally in the US, and thus refers to them as “an illegal alien.”

“The word ‘undocumented’ is not based in US code and should not be used to describe someone’s illegal presence in the country,” the email states.

An immigrant who is in the US legally or whose status is unknown is to be described by their country of citizenship, it adds.

CNN noted that “most outlets, including CNN, use the term ‘undocumented immigrant,’ and only use terms like ‘alien’ when directly quoting a government agency or official.” The liberal network also pointed out that the Associated Press, which puts out a stylebook followed by the majority of news agencies in America, “changed its terminology to not describe a person as illegal, only actions.”

The AP suggests reporters write around such things by saying someone is living in America “without legal permission.”

“Except in direct quotations, do not use the terms illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented,” writes the AP.

Oh, woe is the death of language.

And while we’re on it, to “decimate” isn’t really that bad. It simply means to “kill every 10th man,” not, as Merriam-Webster offers as a third definition,”to reduce drastically, especially in number.”
