UC Berkeley Student Government Bans Use of Term "Illegal Immigrant"
The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.

In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.”

I'll be glad when Berzerkley falls off into the Pacific. Actually no, that would do more harm to the ocean than Fukushima is doing.

Re: UC Berkeley Student Government Bans Use of Term "Illegal Immigrant"
from the article:


"The lone abstention came from student Sen. Solomon Nwoche.

Nwoche said while he sympathized with the situation, he thinks the resolution does not accomplish anything substantial. He added he was disappointed in how a student who spoke against the resolution at an earlier meeting was treated by student senators, who laughed or had their backs turned when the lone protestor addressed the dais."

Cause THAT'S not dehumanizing or anything.

Friggin' libtard hypocrites.

If they actually had anyone there who wasn't a screaming hypocrite that person would go to the meeting and use those words.

The "student government" would then have the choice of removing that person or not.

If that person was removed then they may then go to court because the "student government" would have censored their 1st Amendment right to free speech in a public meeting in a public building at a public university paid for by tax dollars. Which is a civil right violation.

Ok let’s make up a new word…


Because a rose by any other name will smell just as sweet.

How about Unlawful immigrant

Or criminal immigrant
I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

How about you break into their house and tell them you are simply an undocumented co-owner.
