The long-standing legacy of UC-Berkeley as the birthplace of the free speech movement has been shattered to shreds by knot heads in the student government whom have banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.
As reported at the reference:
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.”
The “resolution in support of drop the I-word campaign” was approved 18 to 0 with one abstention on Oct. 30, according to a copy of the meeting’s minutes obtained by The College Fix.
Its approval marks at least the second time this semester that a public university’s student government has voted to eradicate the phrase. UCLA passed a nearly identical measure in late August.
There is an estimated 900 students in the country illegally who are currently enrolled in the 10-campus, University of California system, according to UC officials. These students live in “fear” because former Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano is now president of the UC system, according to the resolution, which aims to “create a safe campus environment for all students.”
“No human being is illegal,” the resolution continues. “ ‘Foreign nationals,’ ‘undocumented immigrants,’ ‘immigrants without papers’ and ‘immigrants seeking status’ are examples of terms we can use that do not dehumanize people.”
Student Sen. Wendy Pacheco said it was not just symbolic, but aimed to shift how people see their “fellow human beings,” that it’s not OK for someone to feel comfortable calling another “illegal,” while student Sen. Sean Tan said discouraging the word will help ease the negative psychological harm undocumented students face by the label.”
To Ms. Pacheco and others of her ilk:
It is NOT OK to invade America and violate our borders and immigration laws. Doing so ignores US sovereignty, the rule of law, and the rights and well being of citizens!
Illegal aliens impose negative psychological harm on people who belong here!
It also costs American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars each year and is a major disruptive force in US education, health care, political, and housing institutions.
Free Speech demands honesty and clarity: Those who come here illegally are ILLEGAL ALIENS. PERIOD!
