While parts of New York City look like a post-apocalyptic landscape, following the last week of riots and looting and many police officers and civilians are still lying in hospitals recovering from mob-induced wounds, that city’s council members have taken virtue-signaling to, yet, another level.
The New York City Council just voted to ban the NYPD, as well as all city officials from using the terms “illegal alien,” and even “illegal immigrant” in the course of their duties.
Ad NBC 4 reported: “ ‘These words are outdated and loaded words used to dehumanize the people they describe. It’s time to retire them,’ Council Member Francisco Moya, an Ecuadorian-American, said ahead of the vote, ‘Words matter. The language we choose to use has power and consequences.’ ”
So, how will those here illegally be referred to, inside, the now, rotten apple?
NYC Councilman Corey Johnson Tweeted: “BREAKING: New York City just became the first major U.S. city to prohibit the use of the dehumanizing and offensive term ‘alien’ in local laws, rules, and documents. From now on, the term will be ‘noncitizen.’”
So, now, Miguel Federico Ajqui-Ajtzalam, 20, who has been charged with raping a 13-year-old Brooklyn girl five times, but was freed by NYC officials, despite a request from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) that he be held, will now be referred to in court documents as a “noncitizen,” rather than an “illegal alien.”
Of course, his victim will doubtlessly continue to feel “dehumanized” for the rest of her life, while her accused rapist’s feelings are defended.
The inmates are clearly running the asylum.
