NYC Flaunts Shocking Priorities by Trying To Ban Term 'Illegal Immigrant' Amid Wave of High-Profile Crimes

Under the leadership, or lack thereof, of Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, the city of New York is once again devolving back to its crime-ridden roots.
With criminals being released from prison with no bail only to commit crimes again, the inmates have taken over the asylum.
But never fear, fair citizens of Gotham, your City Council is on the case … against word crimes.
The council’s Committee on Immigration is considering legislation that would ban the use of the words “alien,” “illegal alien” and “illegal immigrant” on official city documents.
“I introduced this bill because words matter and the language we use or choose to use has power and consequences,” Democratic Councilman Francisco Moya said on Thursday, the New York Post reported.
Rather than using the words “illegal alien,” which are accurate and have been used for decades by Republicans and Democrats alike, the legislation would replace them with “noncitizen.”
“Alien” is an outdated, politically loaded euphemism for “noncitizen”—a clear and unambiguous word. It’s time we remove “alien” the City Charter and Administrative Code and bar referring to human beings as “illegals” in future laws or city materials.

This brings to mind a bit by comedian George Carlin, who spoke about the softening of words in America over time so that people are made to feel better about themselves.
“You can’t be afraid of words that speak the truth. … I don’t like words that hide the truth. I don’t like words that conceal reality,” he said in a routine that members of the New York City government should watch immediately.
