All Woke Up: Illegal to say ‘Illegal alien’ in NYC’

Empower Wisconsin | Oct.. 1, 2019

You had to guess it would come to this.

Uttering the descriptor “illegal alien” could cost the “offender” a quarter-million dollars, according to new “legal enforcement guidance” from the New York City Commission on Human Rights.

“Hate has not place here,” proclaims a tweet from the impossibly liberal city, and there’s no tolerance for any demeaning forms of describing people illegally living in the United States.

As Fox News reported, the city’s announcement notes inappropriate and offensive ways to address illegal immigrants, including threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or giving someone a hard time for their “limited English proficiency.”

So now being rude or even following the law can be costly in a city famous for being rude.

“Fines of up to $250,000 can be assessed for each act of wilful discrimination, and damages are available to complainants,” the city declared.

According to the sanctuary Empire City, being in the country illegally is okay. Telling law enforcement that someone is in the country illegally is a serious offense.
