- NEVER use the term "illegal alien"Well, isn't that SPECIAL!
- STOP imposing the term "illegal immigrant" on immigrant families, immigrant youth, and immigrant workers
- We CAN describe the complexities of the immigration issue without having to criminalize and stigmatize immigrant workers, immigrant families and our immigrant friends and loved ones by using the word "illegal"
- "Illegal immigrant" gives credibility to a broken immigration system that does not honor human rights, workers' rights, and people
Reminds me of the Abraham Lincoln joke:
If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog? Five? No, calling a tail a leg don't make it a leg.
