UC Berkeley Student Government Bans Term ‘Illegal Immigrant’

by Jennifer Kabbany - Associate Editor on November 8, 2013

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.”

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 are 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.”

“The ‘I’ word is legally inaccurate since being out of status is a civil rather than criminal infraction,” states the resolution, which notes some journalists have stopped using the term.

“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.”

The resolution also calls for administrators and faculty to attend an “UndocuAlly training workshop.”

Several student senators praised the resolution, the meeting’s minutes state.

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.

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.

    How about ILLEGAL ALIEN; that has a nice ring to it. You know people who illegally cross our borders or stay passed the time they have been allowed in the country. Any other nation in the world, including Mexico, would hang them by their thumbs before sending them packing.

          So, if I were to walk onto a publicly owned institution of higher learning, like UC Berkley and decided to talk about illegal aliens or illegal immigrants privately with someone and was overheard by a member of the Berkley Student government, would I be arrested or asked to leave with a threat of trespassing? Yes, empty heads being filled with rubbish by liberal/socialistic educators all working off public monies paid for by California and US LEGAL citizens. And we allow this to happen? Why?

          • ashley

            do i think the school will retalliate? its unconstitutional for a public university to violate someone’s freedom of speech. so, if they do retaliate by punishing someone for using the term illegal alien, then they can be sued. so, if they are smart, no, they won’t retaliate.

            Liberty University Democrats: Why They Were Silenced, And What It Means

            Last week, Liberty University – the evangelical Christian mega-college founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell – made the national news when, while implementing a new funding scheme for student organizations, it revoked approval for the campus Democratic organization.

            Liberty’s Young Democrats club – the first in school history – was formed during last fall’s election season, and was given an award for “Up-and-Coming Chapter of the Year” by the Virginia Young Democrats in April. But earlier this month, Liberty VP Mark Hine wrote to club president Brian Diaz that the club’s status was being dropped because it had supported candidates whose views were “contrary to the mission of LU and to Christian doctrine,” even though the club itself was officially pro-life and anti-gay-marriage. Following a maelstrom of criticism, Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. offered to reinstate the club, providing it aligns itself with a pro-life, anti-gay Democratic group, and not the Democratic Party in general. (Which is kind of like saying that you’ll allow penguins at your zoo, but not the black-and-white kind that waddle.)

            On one level, reading a news story about a fledgling chapter of the Young Democrats having its club status revoked by Liberty University is completely unsurprising. After all, since its founding in 1971, Liberty’s mission has always been to cultivate generations of conservative Christian voters and activists. Before his death, Rev. Falwell often said that he wanted his school to be the “Harvard of the right,” and to this day, Liberty’s official brochure touts the school’s “strong commitment to political conservatism, total rejection of socialism, and firm support for America’s economic system of free enterprise.”

            How do you figure, you twit? As very un-religious as I may be, your trying to be smart and clever didn’t work. You musta gone to Berkeley. How about a school like Niagara University, for example? Excellent, excellent college, and a so-called Christian college. Grow up, kid.

          • wvernon1981

            Belief in Christianity or any other religious claims runs counter to the methods with which we actually know things to be true. I cannot count an institution where at least part of the institutional mission is to promote superstition as an institution that is fully dedicated to education. That is why it is an oxymoron.

            Goodness wvernon that’s quite a statement…..
            Tell me, how do you KNOW “the methods with which we actually know things to be true.” are actually true? Do you have some kind of “truth meter” to verify which things are true vs those things that are not? Just curious.

          • wvernon1981

            Ultimately, we all rest our understanding of the world on certain basal assumptions and then build an epistemological system from those assumptions. Religious belief accepts that, via faith, the unknowable, is true in contrast to the means with which we come to believe everything else is true through evidence and reason.

          • Can’tAffordIt

            A shame you chose to limit your mind so much.

          • TalosGuy

            WVernon, I’ve found that faith is required just as much in believing things that science, philosophy, etc. put forth as in believing those put forth by religion. Don’t kid yourself, those of us with religious faith are not all fools, ignorant of the world around us. It’s just that we have a different frame of reference. Thanks though for your input. TG

          • rulierose

            Christianity “runs counter to the methods…we know things to be true”? what does that even MEAN? what “methods”?

            of course, since you refer to religion as superstition, that tells me you’re not really interested in having a discussion. you just want everyone to know that you’re way smarter than, say, Francis Collins, Charles Krauthammer, Pope Francis, Albert Einstein, and Thomas Jefferson, just to name a few believers off the top of my head.

            Earlier in American history “Christian college” would be called a synonym. Back then, that’s how all colleges started.
            Nowadays, colleges should be looked at like the expression “big oil” or “big labor” or “big pharma”.
            “Big University”- as corrupt a monopolistic group as these others.

            It’s bizarre how skewed your view of history is. Traditionally, Christian but specifically Catholic universities did everything they could to stop hard sciences in favor of scholastics and humanism, the foundation of the modern liberal arts degree. In fact, Catholicism has done more to stifle human thought through its sanctioned propaganda from Corrupt popes in Rome. The state sponsored school you refer to were often the only institutions dedicated to sciences inthe form of land and sea grant colleges like Texas AM and Virginia. The only doctrine I can infer from you is the weird tea party refrain that the evils to America come exclusively from Obama, progressives, and immigrants.

            New speak vs Old speak ’1984′

            “…controlled language created by the totalitarian state…”

            “In George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, the fictional language Newspeak attempts to eliminate personal thought by restricting the expressiveness of the English language..”

            “A Soviet “nonperson” vanishes: commissar Nikolai Yezhov retouched after falling from favour and being executed in 1940.”

            “A nonperson is a citizen or a member of a group who lacks, loses, or is forcibly denied social or legal status, especially basic human rights, or who effectively ceases to have a record of their existence within a society (damnatio memoriae), from a point of view of traceability, documentation, or existence. The term also refers to people whose death is unverifiable and about which inquiries result in a “blank wall” of “nobody knows”. The phrase was coined by George Orwell in his dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-four.”

            “1848: year of revolution …and publication of Marx and Engels’ Communist Manifesto

            “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.” This ringing battle cry was issued 160 years ago by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their Communist Manifesto.

            Marx and Engels were commissioned to write this manifesto in 1847 as the programme of the Communist League, the first attempt to build an international workers’ organisation.

            Christian Bunke looks at the conditions which existed in Germany when the Communist Manifesto was published. The Communist League adopted the slogan “Proletarians of all countries unite!” and 1848 saw revolutionary movements across Europe.,,,”

            It probably is non-binding. I remember when I was in college the student government types did all kinds of stuff no one really paid attention to.

        The wording is hardly nuanced. The liberal world is immersed in the idea of “newspeak” as presented in George Orwell’s “1984.” For instance, “gay” was a word meaning “light-hearted” or frivolous. Homosexuals used it originally as an ironic appellation. Now, the original meaning is totally lost — to the extent that one school has substituted the word “fun” for “gay” in a famous song. To the extent this stuff is important, that is the extent to which we accelerate our decline.

        Oger, while I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments, as well as their basis in the rule of law- I think you’re setting yourself up for unneeded opposition by insisting on deportation.

        Simply enforcing current laws, coupled with imposing penalties on employers who aid and abet illegal invaders, has proven to be very effective in the wonderful concept and reality of self-deportation.

        These people are here for the money, and when it’s unavailable, most willingly head for the border and don’t bother coming back.

        But now, you would never see that because the people who are motivated to employ illegal aliens are hungry for cheap labor and big stock options, or more farm “profit”.
        Big Tech doesn’t want the majority of “illegal aliens”. They want the highly educated, motivated grads from Asia and elsewhere. They are willing to support legalization of the many for their obtaining the “few” HB 1 qualifed types they want. They are behind all the funding and buying of politics as well as the progressive activist groups.

        If they really wanted to right some wrongs, like legalizing children of illegals who have been here and have been productive for many years, a law doing that would be acceptable. That’s not what they want. That would require some real work on their part, and the willingness to accept less money from special interests.

    • guest

      Exactly what I was thinking, as illegal alien is the correct term. An immigrant (in US history) is a term used for someone who legally came to this country. An alien is someone here illegally. So illegal alien is the correct term. Thanks UC Berkeley for clearing this up for us, we will now only use the term ILLEGAL ALIEN!!

      • strayaway

        Correct. US residents are either citizens or aliens, the legal term for non-citizens. Aliens come in two varieties; legal and illegal. The term “illegal immigrant” is totally fuzzy Newspeak. It means nothing. Was Mohammed Atta and most of his crews’ members “immigrants” because they had overstayed their visas? In Newspeak, “immigrant” apparently includes everyone who gets into or stays in this Country illegally. Newspeak is here so we can’t think straight.

          Whether you say “immigrant” or “alien”, it doesn’t matter. The word “illegal” is what these lefty authoritarians are targeting and they want to destroy our national sovereignty.

          • strayaway

            I disagree. First these pc types got rid of the word “alien”. Now they are after “illegal”. “Alien” is a concise legal term. “Immigrant” can mean just about anything. I realize that “undocumented” has the same relationship to “illegal”. It is fuzzier. Bank robbers caught in bank vaults should be reclassified as “undocumented patrons” and be given proper bank accounts i suppose.

          Mistaken! But more importantly, what do we call the people who allow this to happen? You know, We the People who continue to elect them to office all the while knowing of their character? I call those people STUPID.

          Guess what, that pretty much surmises the character/condition of the American Citizen today. If it were not true people like Feinstein, Pelosi, Boxer, Obama, Christe, and far to many to name, wouldn’t continue to be re-elected to office.

          The comic strip character “POGO” said it best, “I has seed da enemy an dai is us.”

          In the computer industry there is a term GIGO which means garbage in, garbage out. If we elect garbage to rule over us then garbage will rule over us. It’s really that simple. Make better decisions on who runs and is ultimately elected to office and things will start to get better. We haven’t done that in many decades and the result of that stupidity is self evident all around us today.

      But, your suggestion doesn’t satisfy current standards of liberal “linguistic relativism” which bends the language in an attempt to make the dull-witted think in ways that precludes arguments against their agenda (of destroying rational U.S. immigration policy in this case). Major media outlets (lead by the NYT, and news networks) have joined this deception by modifying their style guides. Even Fox Latino and Clear Channel radio routinely participate in the hoax.

      The term “aliens, illegally resident” is the best substitution that retains the proper legal terminology (aliens, being the proper designation for foreign nationals on U.S. soil while, simultaneously, avoiding the (bogus) argument that no one can be “illegal”.
      See how nice that works?

    These people are beyond silly. There’s nothing “racist” or “dehumanizing” about describing something or someone in the most accurate of terms. There are immigrants who came here legally, and then there are those who came here via illegal means. We call them, you guessed it, illegal immigrants. PC culture run absolutely amok. Seems like what they’re really trying to do is play with the language to try and convince people that those who broke countless laws to get and stay in this country have really done nothing wrong and are victims. As the son of people who had to spend years of their time and lots of money to get here the legal way, this is a complete insult.

    So we go from the Berkeley Free Speech Movement to this, and the adherents see nothing odd about it. Interesting how the Left has come to this.

    If someone has been deported and then illegally enters the US again that is a felony and no longer a civil issue.

  • nhbuckeye

    Who needs the First Amendment anyway?!

  • Robert Chambers

    There is nothing racist about the term Illegal Immigrant. This does not associate color or race. This could be a white person from Canada or Poland and has nothing to do with race or color

  • 10Megatons

    If I lived anywhere near the craphole known as California, I would walk around their campus shouting ‘illegal immigrant’ just to throw it back in their faces. It is amazing how the left loves freedom of speech, yet wants to ban words/phrases it does not like. If they don’t like the term ‘illegal immigrant’, I guess they will really get upset with ‘we+back’.

    Liberals banning speech. America, are you watching?

    Great! Now they can go back to using the proper term, “Illegal Alien”. Especially since “immigrant” implies legality, which we all know is not the case.

  • Jum1801

    Bravo! I congratulate the UC Berkeley SGA for their innate morality, their keen sense of justice and their wisdom. And as long as they’ve taken it on themselves to become the arbiters of the English language, and have chosen to determine what words and even concepts are “good” and which are “bad”, I’d like to suggest a few additions as well.

    First, let’s dispense with the insanely inappropriate word “Democratic” in the political party of that name. Nothing about them is democratic. And as long as we’re being accurate and truthful, let’s replace it with something much more appropos. I suggest any of these: “Stalinist”, “Statist”, “Socialist”, “Totalitarian”, “Alinskyite”….oh, you get the drift.

    Oh, and let’s deal with how it is we address the President. See, we have this tradition of speaking of the President as “The Honorable…” in certain circumstances. And since we’re in this truthy mood, we just can’t let this horrendous error go any longer. Because our President of the moment has not one thing about him which qualifies for the title. So let’s fix it with more truthful and accurate descriptions of the man. Okay, there’s “Marxist”, “Terrorist-trained”, “Weatherman-mentored”, “Traitorous”….

  • phil_in_san_diego

    UC Berkeley. Home of the free speech movement. Limits free speech. Ah, the irony is precious. I am certain the activists feel all smug for their moral superiority. Well done, students you just proved to the world that you are not free thinkers, but are automatons of the state. So sad that at the best public uni, you have so willingly given up on independent thought.

    Berkeley is right…”Immigrant” is a term of art meant to lend an air of legal intent to the person or group in question. The more appropriate and legally relevant term is, of course, “ILLEGAL”!

    So much for FREE SPEECH! What a bunch of hypocritical morons! Interesting in the fact that no one seems to notice that the most liberal state and most liberal party is responsible for enacting more restrictions on people than the republicans. They are only liberal IF it suits their ideology and if not, freedom be damned. I suggest simply opening the borders and granting every one of the ILLEGALLY entering immigrants or aliens California residency and other states can ship their ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS to California as well. Sooner or later this state will be on its knees, unable to support the massive entitlements that flow to people who BROKE OUR LAWS to enter this country. I also suggest that any business owner in California allow ILLEGAL ALIENS to take what they want for FREE, EAT FOR FREE, go to the MOVIES FOR FREE…after all we don’t want to OFFEND lawbreakers.

  • ReaganFan

    I’d go with “Outlaw” since the are on the wrong side of the law (as in outside it). Illegal Alien (as in alien to this society works also),
    Isn’t it interesting how useful idiots can come with this stuff … members of the society who have yet to participate in that society can ‘ban’ words in the larger/greater society itself?

  • Dunnyveg

    Yes, this is part of post-American liberalism’s war on the traditional American nation.

  • Dan76

    They broke the law but breaking the law in America is not really breaking the law because calling someone who is here illegally is now “racist”. How about felon?

    It is these folks who grow up, become parents and don’t raise their children.Then those “kids” go out and hurt people all because they can’t be disciplined because it might “hurt” their feelings.

  • ancientemplar

    how about “wetback” in stead?

    • Bob Forsberg

      Operation Wetback was the official name for deporting Mexican illegals during the Eisenhower administration. If you google “Operation Wetback” you will see how America rightfully protected itself from illegal invaders in the past.

  • Right

    I don’t even understand why we call them “liberals” anymore — today’s progressives are so anti-liberal. In the heart of every progressive is a totalitarian streak. They’re all in favor of freedom of speech that they agree with; otherwise, not so much. In the UK, a lounge singer was arrested and thrown in jail for the crime of singing “Kung Fu Fighting” as a Chinese couple happened to be walking by on the street outside. Here in the US, invite a conservative to speak on a college campus, and all hell breaks loose. Leftist students will rip down flyers, steal student newspapers that promote the event, and do anything they can to block the person from speaking. They justify this by branding any opinion they disagree with “hate speech” — like something straight out of “1984″.

    • CharlesKaye

      They’re communists in liberal disguise.

  • P_Ang

    How about Criminal Alien? Make sure and tell the criminals at the school instituting this program that THEY JUST CREATED A LOOPHOLE. So, lawbreakers no longer are called “illegal.” But I don’t have to obey your insipid fifth grader rules because nothing is illegal! Don’t they bother to make sure these students graduate middle school before admitting their money to college any longer?

  • John Galt

    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.”

    So when Hitler’s troops went into Poland they should have been called German army guys instead of Nazi invaders?

    • JDS

      Great analogy – poor central americans immigrating to the United States to lift themselves out of poverty are exactly like Nazis invading Poland! Who typed this for you, because you’re clearly too intellectually challenged to use a computer?

      • John Galt

        Think of the stigma “Invading Nazi” must carry with it. They were just trying to make the world a better place, lift their country out of poverty induced by WW I reparations. Makes as much sense as your argument. Get em signed up and let em in, otherwise they are invaders pure and simple.
        I know it is hard for you to hear this from someone so much dumber than you are Mr. self appointed intellectual.
        You don’t want to see it, but those who come here uninvited and sneak in are invaders. There is a program for those who want to come here legally. OH? Takes too long? Not so with proof.
        You have that liberal tendency to give things a nice name and ignore the fact it might not be nice.
        Affordable care act. How nice. What are you going to do with your $2,500.00 savings?
        Undocumented immigrants? How nice.
        Oh, by the way not all of them are here to lift themselves up out of poverty. Many of them cost us millions and millions. Many of them rape and murder. Many are robbers and gang members.
        I don’t care who comes through the system but if they sneak in they are exactly the same as any other invader from history.
        IFAs!

        • JDS

          OK, so aside from the fact that the Germans rolled 60 divisions and 3000 tanks (and the Soviets pretty much matched them) and killed hundreds of thousands of Poles, it’s a pretty good comparison.

          Did your ancestors immigrate to America “legally”? Mine didn’t, because there were no significant restrictions on Europeans that wanted to immigrate here until the 1920s.

          I’m not saying that I advocate a no-restrictions immigration policy, or that the current system should be chucked wily-nily. I bring this up just to point out that for a large part of our nation’s history there was a much less restricted flow of immigrants, and I believe that made the country richer, more diverse, and admired across the world.

          I believe there is plenty of middle ground to be explored in this complex debate, and that either / or thinking is not helpful. I think we can figure out a way to offer amnesty and a path to citizenship to illegals that have demonstrated a capacity to work and no criminal history (outside of breaking immigration laws, and the various and sundry deceits necessary for survival), and that we have a moral obligation to do so. As did George W. Bush.

          I also believe that US employers that hire illegals under the table are the real villains in this story if you’re upset about the lost tax revenue and downward pressure on wages that this practice brings.

          A little perspective and compassion wouldn’t kill you, would it?

          • John Galt

            “A little perspective and compassion wouldn’t kill you, would it?”
            How silly to assume anyone who doe not share your views would lack perspective and compassion.
            I’d like to see people immigrate legally and that makes me a narrow minded bigot.
            You are a funny person.

    I get a little joy knowing these jackholes will soon graduate into a job market their messiah has worked to destroy for the last five years. As they find themselves unemployable, they will simultaneously be punished for failing to sign on to the Obumblecare website (still not functioning) and for not purchasing health care that they do not want and cannot afford. Suffer, fools. You own it. Maybe Mexico will take you with their much lower unemployment rate.

  • David J.

    How about ‘Foreign Invader’? That term is appropriate given they climb over our border fences.

    THE SAD IRONY IS……..this is a university and they can’t even correctly apply definitions to words.

    Seriously, look up the word “immigrant” in the dictionary. Then look up the words, “invader, squatter, occupier, grifter, drug-dealer, and kidnapper, etc.”. Then, tell me which definitions more aptly apply to these criminals?

  • dw323

    In California a bank robbery is now referred to as an “Unauthorized Withdrawal”.

  • Jack

    How about instead we ban the use of the word IMMIGRANT when talking about people who come here illegally? As far as I’m concerned, if you don’t come here through the front door (i.e., legally), then this country should you to be truly interested in being an immigrant. An immigrant is someone that comes here legally on a work visa and goes through the process to apply for legal residency. This is something people do all the time from all over the world, including (gasp!) “people of color”. The term immigrant should not apply to people that simply jump a fence.

    They are illegal aliens, illegal wetbacks, illegal border sneakers, they are illegal just about everything. There are so many ways to describe these intruder/criminals that you ban one way and another easily comes to mind.

  • avconsumer2

    Rhetoric. Empty, politically charged rhetoric. If “illegal” is “racially charged”, it’s simply because someone perceives it as such and obviously has a racism (in this case, negative racism or blatant stereotyping,) problem themselves. This is simply a fact. I don’t give a crap if they’re 7 shades whiter than bleached white rice, they are not here legally – therefore – they are here illegally. They entered the country illegally, and are immigrants. They, by definition, are illegal immigrants. Also… Merriam-Webster would like a word.

  • BeanerECMO

    Is not UC Berkley a public university subsidized by government (taxpayer) funds; therefore a government entity? Consequently, banning of any language unless it incites riots is unconstitutional; to wit: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. In several cases, the courts have held that congress also includes any government entity.

  • sfcmac

    The liberal turds at Berkeley refuse to acknowledge our immigration laws (Title 8 US Code sections 1324, 1325) which clearly state that any foreigner entering the U.S. without proper authorization is doing so ILLEGALLY and is classified as a FELON. That also goes for the slugs who aid, abet, harbor, and hire them.

    Illegal alien foreign nationals are NOT “immigrants”. Those alien foreign nationals that apply for “immigration visas” ARE “immigrants” that have followed the “legal process” for entry into the U.S.

    “illegal immigrant” is an oxymoron dreamed up by the likes of ‘berkley-morons”.

  • Mr. Twitch

    Total ret@rds!!
    Someone tell the Berkeley student government that ‘ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS’ have been under-bidding our middle class jobs for decades. Our real-wage and standard of living has been in decline for decades! The problem is that these ‘jerkeleys’ are just emulating our Fed/State government and the immigration policies they have carried out for decades. Nothing new, Berkeley. Sad.
    Our government wants illegal immigration otherwise they could have stopped it in its track in a matter of days!

  • KStacey

    Good to know when I have civil infractions, I can just tell the judge it cannot be considered “illegal”.

  • ComSenseWiz

    The LEGAL TERM for these people is ILLEGAL ALIEN and under no circumstances will I ever refer to them any other way. I have completely severed any relationship with my alma mater and because of the ridiculous environment at Cal, my eldest daughter, who got in both Cal & UCLA, blew them off for Stanford partly due to this delusional thinking. My youngest, a senior in HS, will not even be applying to this cesspool of liberal thinking.

    Berkeley out of the US!!!

  • Matt

    Very interesting. I thought liberalism was about being open and speaking your mind and blah blah. Well apparently it is not about honest. An illegal immigrant is a term of truth. A criminal alien who broke the law to break into America. Liberalism is a disease.

  • baxter999

    Students whose education is heavily subsidized by legal Americans at one of our top universities show themselves to be fascist thought police trying to control the speech of anyone who dares to think differently. When will they start wearing swastika armbands and fining and imprisoning Christians? Get out of KKKalifornia while you still can.

  • Edward Owen

    Hmmm..Isnt the ex-Homeland SECURITY Chief now the head of UC Berkely, Janet Napolitano..To think she was in chrage of our borders, Gun Running in Fast and Furious, she NOW sits as head of Education and Schools…saying: Ther is NO such thing as an “illegal Alien”….She now is teaching a New Generation the art of Anrachy and Marxist propaganda…Obamas Crew is still working hard to “transform” this nation into a communistic controlled State….”The king sits smiling as he ruins our country…The peasants laugh while they are being shackled”…Bread and Circus’s”

  • NotTheSheeple

    Those student “senators” should all be shot.

  • bikeromany

    Berkeley liberals are the definition of the word sophomoric; educated but too foolish to understand. The best you can hope for with these privileged, intellectually lazy morons is that someday they’ll wonder how the world came to be as it is, but they’ll never attribute any blame to themselves. And those 900 “undocumented” students who “live in fear”? How do they compare to the 900 legal (excuse me, documented) students who were denied entry to the college because their place was illegally filled?

  • Huh

    The People’s Republik of Berkley is on acid – If you enter this country illegally, then you are an ILLEGAL ALIEN. I find the phrase ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT to mild since it implies immigrant status when in fact they are ILLEGAL ALIENS!

  • News Reporter

    Please post the names of these college students who voted to ban the phrase. They need to be placed in the spotlight and not clumped into some anonymous “UC Berkeley student government”. They need to be held accountable and not allowed to hide behind an organization name.

  • Kage McClued

    That pesky 1st Amendment has no meaning to those morons, obviously.

    But I agree to a certain extent: the term ISN’T “illegal immigrant,” which was a somewhat more polite term for the scum breaking our laws.

    The term they’re searching for is “illegal alien.”

    I got their “ban” hanging.

  • LibsAreCommies

    Only in Crazy Backwards Liberal World.

  • bernie

    This is no surprise from Berkeley. The term will never go away as long as Illegal Aliens are criminals. Prudent people, regardless of ideology, are more concerned with their safety and security than criminal illegal aliens.

  • RedPill

    Oh yes. You didnt illegally take that, you stole it. You didnt illegally take a life, you killed. You didnt illegally cross the border, you are looking for a better life or hand outs. Yeah it makes sense.

    Are they going to ban “resident alien” as an offensive word as well at these bastions of free speech? PC is the method of controlling the language so that Cultural Marxists can frame and control the discourse. It has nothing at all to do with being a substitute for good manners.

    What dehumanize people, is progressive liberalism, they think that by changing a word it also changes the meaning. With that logic we can change a lot of things, like a stabbing could be… the improper use of an eating utensil or a burglary could be…the unauthorize entry of a home or facility or the definition of a college student……a financial asset in need of a liberal brain transplant.

    We certainly wouldn’t want free speech to break out at UC Berkeley. Liberal oppression is needed to prevent unpopular views from being expressed on campus. Seems like they had a free speech movement at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. Now that Liberals are in control they’re ending it.

  • Rodney Mann

    Let’s see this all happens shortly after Janet Napolitano takes the helm at UC Berkley, pretty indicative of her time and attitude at DHS and leaves little doubt as to why are borders went unsecure during her tenure and further proves the total disregard those in the Obama administration have for our constitution.
    Maybe most disturbing of all is the fact that these so call student senators would not even listen respectfully to a dissenting opinion (last paragraph). Guess they all belong to the party of tolerance.

  • Rocketman

    First off, this “resolution”, as state action by an organ of a public university, is a blatant “illegal” restriction of speech under the First Amendment. It is not a content-neutral restriction on speech, and “illegal immigrant” is not a fighting word traditionally understood.
    It is doubly ironic that students are now the organs of totalitarian thought control, restricting the free speech on a public campus, at a university that 50 years ago was the home of the “Free Speech Movement.” America’s campuses are now the very epicenter of liberal fascism.

    I’m not against reforming our immigration system and make it easier for people to become AMERICAN citizens but I’m totally against anyone telling me that I can not use any language I want to when I speak or write. Much less a college where freedom of expression is supposed to be the norm. College has become a joke. You are only free to speak your mind when, and only when, it agrees with what those in power (like a student body organization). When you teach those in college that it perfectly alright to put your foot on others neck and hold them down if they differ from you, then it becomes correct to go back to the practice of enslaving minorities. If anything needs to be outlawed, it’s political correctness.

  • spitefull troll

    “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.” So can we call them iWops?

    matter of fact, in a number of countries around the world (most of them)
    it is a sufficiently “illegal” offense to get you arrested and
    imprisoned. Hell, in some it is even enough to get your illegal alien

He was practicing his “import and export pharmaceutical business” when this “oppressive federal agent” attempted to close his business. Then the “incorruptible friendly neighbor country” blocked all attempts for a year so that our “oppressive neo-nazi state” could not “oppress” this “immigrant without papers” . Wow, its awesome to live with rose colored glasses on!

  • Dana Garcia

    Every one of those illegal alien students is taking a slot that should go to an American kid, particularly Californians whose parents’ taxes have financed the UC system.

    There are fine colleges in Mexico and elsewhere. It’s racist to think otherwise.

  • OracleJones

    In the elitist parallel universe known as “Academia” having any meaningful life experience, common sense or adherance to unfashionable laws is strictly forbidden. The illegal aliens have been referred to as “non-traditional settlers” by some academic elitists. If that is an accurate description then thieves, muggers and looters must be “non-traditional shoppers” and car thieves are “non-traditional commuters”.

  • Hopeless Future

    I have stopped being surprised at how racist liberals are. They claim the definitional correct term of illegal immigrant is racist because of its racially overtones. Who ever said illegals are only people of color. We have illegals here from England, France, Germany…every European country. It is the liberals who believe only people of color are illegal and therefore are the ones breaking the law. They are too narrow-minded to see their own racism yet see racism in everyone else, where it doesn’t exist.

    If you came to the country to live but are not authorized by law to do so, that would make you? An illegal immigrant!

    Hey young unknowing baby ass wipes. You can ban all the words and phrases you want but it won’t make a damn bit of difference when California secedes from the USA and you get your young butts booted out of Greater Northern Mexico because you are not Mexican citizens. So the student government that is supposed to be so enlightened is censoring speech, how special. I guess they figure they’ll get special treatment when the poop hits the fan when whole system comes crashing down around their poor little heads. And they call themselves adults.

    Illegal Alien is not a good descriptor for the situation anyway. These criminals who invade our country, breaking our immigration laws and sneaking across the border to obtain jobs, have kids to tie them here, stealing government handouts not established for non citizens and many commiting drug and human trafficking laws are nothing mor or less than CRIMINAL INVADERS and should be repelled at the border and those who infiltrated should, with their families, be rounded up and sent packing back to their country of origin and the foreign aid provided by us to that country reduced by what those round up and deportation costs are as well as recoupment for any welfare and medical aid provided. Illegal immigrants, not! Immigrant implies they immigrated properly and it is time to start calling a spade a spade for wht these individuals really are, CRIMINAL INVADERS, period!

Coming soon the UC Berkeley campus the new and approved dictionary for the like-minded you can only tolerate. They walk alike, they talk alike sometimes they even squawk alike; you can lose your mind when UC Berkeley start telling you what should be a crime. Isn’t it wonderful to see the natural evolution of things, the student has now become the teacher and the teacher is a fascist; money well spent mom and dad, money well spent.

    Got out of bed, wasn’t feeling too good
    With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
    The sun is shining so I head for the park
    With a bottle of tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes

    I got a cousin and she got a friend
    Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
    At his apartment I knocked on the door
    He wouldn’t come out until he got paid

    Now don’t tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they’ll never let me through, ‘cos

    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien

    Down at the office had to fill out the forms
    A pink one, a red one, the colors you choose
    Up to the counter to see what they think
    They said it doesn’t count man, it ain’t written in ink
    I don’t trust anybody, least not around here, ‘cos

    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I mean it when I tell ya that
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien
    An illegal alien, okay

    Consideration for your fellow man
    Would not hurt anybody, it sure fits in with my plan
    Over the border, there lies the promised land
    Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand

    Keep your suspicions, I’ve seen that look before
    But I ain’t done nothing wrong now, is that such a surprise
    But I’ve got a sister who’d be willing to oblige
    She will do anything now to help me get to the outside

    So don’t tell anybody what I wanna do
    If they find out you know that they’ll never let me through, ‘cos

    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, and it’s getting me down
    It’s no fun being an illegal alien, no, no, no, no, no

That “Alien” is present in the USA either legally, having complied with our immigration law, or is here illegally having not complied with our immigration laws. If that Alien has complied with our law, they are a “Legal Alien”. If they have not complied with law, they are an “Illegal Alien”. Reality does not yield to emotions. Any questions?

  • MJ

    I would like to congratulate the California University on the new achievement in Splitting Hairs. I will grudgingly give you that it is a persons actions or lack of action that makes them illegal. But to say that something is not illegal because it is civil and not criminal. A civil case is still a violation of the law. We are talking about a federal felony to be in the country without proper documentation. This meets the definition of being illegal. As in violation of a law. Is the next step to ban the dictionary from campus because it contains words that you feel are derogatory.

    • CCBanks

      WRONG. It’s basic ENGLISH which is probably why these morons struggle with it. In the phrase “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT” the word “IMMIGRANT” is the NOUN which refers to the PERSON. The word “ILLEGAL” is an ADJECTIVE which describes the TYPE of NOUN in this case the type of “IMMIGRANT”. And “illegal” one as opposed to an “undocumented” one who’s paperwork was forgotten , destroyed or eaten by the family pet. The word “illegal” NEVER is the PERSON in English but rather the TYPE of person. It’s like saying the BLUE CAR, no one is calling the word BLUE a CAR, rather it is the CAR that is BLUE.

      How Mexico deals with Illegal Immigrant Guatemalans when they illegally cross the boarder into Mexico from Guatemala.

      “Foreigners” and “Outsiders”?

      “The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?”

      “If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.”

  • tgcrawford

    Any student in the country illegally has broken the law, and needs to be sent back to their country, where they can apply for entry, just like the 300,000 LEGAL entrants who abide by our laws. No excuse. Who cares what an idiot student at Berkeley imagines. The world has laws, period.

    For supposedly educated kids, you are a bunch of bedwetting idiots. The words “illegal” and “immigrant” mean things that are completely devoid of race, creed, or sexual misorientation. When you slugs get out of that hellhole of indoctrination, you will be about as prepared to deal with the real world as a poodle dropped in the Amazon. That’s exactly what your milquetoast parents and grandparents have done, bred you into animals ill equipped to survive in a competitive world.

    Typical of an ultra-left wing school like UCB to take away a basic civil right while defending something that isn’t even a right. What don’t those morons understand about the word “illegal”? It is what they are. They are here illegally and they are aliens in this country. It doesn’t matter where they are from. It is what it is.

    Hey Liberals! How about starting your bonfire for some book burning? How about invoking the Chairman (Mao) and his term “cultural revolution”–where 50mm+ people were “purged” (meaning killed, for those liberals who can’t translate)? How about the old Soviet Union and its crackdown on “Western” influences in dress, music, movies, etc.? Or simply, how about just forgetting the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment?

    In simple English, illegal means breaking the law–this is what is being done every time a citizen of another country enters the U.S. illegally. Or, if you’re into Webster: “Illegal=Forbidden by law or statute. Alien=A person born in and possessing the citizenship of a country other than the one in which he or she currently lives.”

    Liberals routinely invent
    extra-Constitutional rights in order to further their agenda (i.e.
    abortion, gender and racial preferences, etc.) and routinely invent
    “repressed groups” in order to expand the power of the State (i.e.
    homosexuals, minorities, illegal immigrants, etc.) or to subvert the
    power of established institutions (i.e. the Church, family, nationalism,
    etc.).

  • gAWD

    Of course they do.

  • akjim99

    They’ve also banned the phrase “common sense,” and the words “educated,” “knowledgeable,” and “patriot.”

  • Shulman

    I imagine, then, that none of these students has a passport and, when traveling across borders, simply explains to the kind immigration officers that he is merely a human passing through in a non-criminal way. I also don’t understand the civil/criminal distinction. I understand “illegal” to mean “not legal,” as in “against the law.” It is irrelevant whether the law metes out civil or criminal punishment to an offender — it’s still a law, and breaking it is still illegal. Sad that these are ostensibly accomplished students and future politicians.

    • clifferd

      Shulman, You’re dead on here. Unfortunately, you’ve overlooked that democrats’ main tool in making “progress” is to keep people uninformed. In other words, by obfuscating the fact that illegal means, simply, “against the law,” whether civil or criminal penalties apply, they make their point. To the sheeple and/or uninformed masses that are the democrat party, when they say illegal entry into the country is a civil offense, democrats have said all they need to say, because they know “their” people will investigate no further. Just like ObaMao: so I have said it, so it shall be done……you know, that sort of dictatorial stuff…….

Apparently in the mind of a liberal the term “illegal immigrant” is synonymous with Mexican. Sounds to me like the students of Berkeley are the racists. Note to Berkeley graduates: don’t bother applying to my company for a job. Resumes for graduates from notoriously liberal schools go straight into the trash. I’d much prefer to hire a hard-working LEGAL immigrant than a liberal skumbag from Berkeley.

  • jabusse

    It is not illegal immigrant anyway. According to the definitions in the US code it is illegal alien and according to the law the fed has total control over them, not CAL. Don’t they read the US law? Of course it was Berkley that was the loan vote not to go to war against Japan in WWII and it was UC Berkley’s work on Eugenics that led to Hitlers cleansing of Europe. So one wonders why anything Berkley does or says is worth much.

  • DZicyB

    Wrong on every count. The term is racially neutral: what race is implicated? It correctly describes the status of a resident who has entered this country in violation of our immigrations laws. Banning speech in an institution that receives any federal funds or State funds violates both the 5th and 14th Amendments. Berkeley should be decertified. Obviously its students do not learn very much.

  • The Voice of Reason

    The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal
    immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive,
    unfair and derogatory.

    Let’s break this down into some words.

    Illegal means the individual has done something illegal. Illegal could mean driving without a license, voting in an election without being registered, stealing a book from the Berkeley Library or maybe sneaking across a border.

    All the above actions are race neutral because anyone can do them. Thus, the first word illegal should have no offense to anyone as to race.

    Offensive is when you say something to someone that may offend them. What these Left wing nut jobs of a student body are doing is offensive to me. It is taking away my right to call a spade a spade. The feeling of offensive is in the eye of the beholder and everything can be offensive. For example, your in McDonald’s with a fat friend and you are ordering for him, if you ask him if he wants his meal super-sized would that be offensive? Maybe McDonald’s should ban the word Super-size.

    The word unfair is always used by liberals because its an adjective that describes another sate of mine about ones feelings. My kids would always tell me that going to bed at 7:00 PM was unfair when they were little. But, parents decide what is fair, not the child.

    Derogatory is the same as fair.

    So what do we call a person who sneaks across the border, which is a Federal crime, earns their income under the table, which is a crime, doesn’t report their income on a tax return, which is a crime, drives without a license and no insurance, has a baby but doesn’t reveal the name of the known father so they qualify for free services, which is also a crime, buys weapons without registration, which is a crime, and the list goes on and on?

    I think the word Illegal Immigrant is actually too lenient and forgiving.

    Before conducting such a vote, all participants should be required to attend a special seminar.

    Here is the location : The admissions office at Universidad de Xochicalcomore in Tijuana just across the border.
    After attempting to enroll in a class there, the participants will be required to pay off the local police and judges if they ever want to get back home again following their arrest and beating by the police on the spot. If on the other hand, they are beaten too severely, they will be required to also pay the bill at the local (free only to Mexican citizens) socialized medicine clinic. THEN they will be jailed until someone on this side of the border sends them enough bribe money. They will also be obligated to hire local attorneys there and pay their own jail expenses for the time they are in jail. They will also be riding the bus home because their cars will be stolen by the local police and judges.
    Only after that, should they be allowed to vote on being NICE to these people.

    Does the US Berkley Student Government have the right to hamper the freedom of speech? There is nothing wrong with using words within the English language within their proper context. For example, the word illegal does not refer to the personhood of the individual. The Student Government is correct. No person is illegal. However, crossing the boarder, without the proper permissions from the United States, does place the individual into an illegal status. Let’s stop manipulated the issue and have a real honest discussion. Reducing the phrase “Illegal Alien” down to the “I” word is ludicrous. I does not stop being a word, nor does it get removed from the English language just because you wish it away.

    The path to US citizenship has always been available to anyone who seeks it. Illegally crossing our border or overstaying your visa is not one of the options to becoming a US citizen.

    Much like US immigration law. Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

    The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate Mexican law, are not “physically or mentally healthy” or lack the “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.

    “This sounds like the kind of law that a rational nation would have to protect itself against illegal immigrants — that would stop and punish the very people who are violating the law,” .

Now, accurate terminology is being banned in favor of euphemisms. Don’t even think about speaking on a UC campus if you’re a non-leftist independent thinker. Protests will usually result in revocation of an invitation to speak and if they don’t, you will be shouted down, interrupted or even physically threatened while trying to speak. The former Harvard President, Larry Summers, found this out when he was invited to speak at UC Davis.

    Someone who enters the country illegally is not an illegal alien? This is a term that best describes that which it is. College campuses have become bastions of anti-free speech fascists. They often more resemble a cult, than institutions of higher learning.

  • Bodhisattva

    “Illegal alien” is a 100% accurate description of a person who A) has entered the United States illegally (or broken the law by entering legally but staying beyond their legal limit according to what they agreed when they entered), in direct and flagrant violation of existing law and B) is not a U.S. resident, i.e. is an alien, under our laws.

    It is very disturbing that a well known university so overwhelmingly supports censorship and the limitation of our first amendment rights.

I believe, as a country, we have come to desperate straights if our best and brightest fail to understand and support our basic rights.

    An machine gun located in the U.S. without proper licensing is an “illegal gun”; a vile of cocaine located in the U.S. without proper pharmaceuticals registration is an “illegal drug”; a person located in the U.S without authorization is an “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant”.

    The term “Immigrant’ describes the status of a person in their present environment. As such, it isn’t derogatory in any fashion. When one “immigrates” to another country, one does so either legally or illegally. I can excuse students from not knowing this but there’s no excuse for journalists.

    Interesting how the offensive attribution of “illegal” can be applied to Christopher Columbus and his European brethren but not to the ragged hordes spilling over (or tunneling under) our borders every day, taxing an overburdened welfare state and committing crime disproportionate to their numbers.

    When the 18th and 19th Century poor sought refuge in this great country of ours, they did it through Ellis Island where the bad apples were sorted out. If our ancestors played by the rules and entered legally, is it too much to require the current influx to do so?

    Not so with Berkeley. In the “world of Berkeley”, there are no bad apples, save for white Christian men and their time has run out.

    Berkeley is a silly place, more a cult than an institution of higher education.

Oh, so sorry, many of you don’t apparently own one and many more who do don’t actually know what it says.

    UC Berkeley campus is where I grew up. It used to be a place where all rules were challenged just for the sake of it.

    The Communist Manifesto is one of those documents I was aware of, but had never taken the time to actually read.

So, in the course of continuing liberty self-education, I found a translation on the web in order to better understand this failed canon of anti-freedom. My reaction: wow. The Communist Manifesto, written in 1848, looks a lot like the Democratic Party Positions, written in 2000.

    “The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.”

    Well, it should be banned. It is inaccurate.

    The proper term is, “illegal alien.”

    Using the word, “immigrant,” connotes a connection to propriety as “immigration” is a legal procedure.

    However, as these scum are in the country illegally, they have no connection to legality – or, “immigrant” – in the least.

    So, “illegal immigrant” is incorrect and should be replaced with, “illegal alien.”

  • Marcus Washingtonus

    Fine, call them “Citizens of Mexico/etc.”. It is accurate and true. These migrants, who disrespect international borders, already have full citizenship- in the nations they have infiltrated our land from. These citizens of foreign nations, who are documented and legal in their own nations,have derided the laws and conventions we American citizens are bound to respect in our country- while demanding we fundamentally transform ourselves from a “nation of immigrants” into a “nation of migration”. You cannot have a nation of immigrants in the progressive era of entitlement, which Genuine Immigrants from all lands, in our pre-entitlement past, had not expecation of and made no arrogant, insulting proggie demands for.
    Citizens of Mexico: no amnesty for your extended stays here. We have nothing to apologize for and absolutely no reason to feel guilty about telling you the simple truth: you are documented in your homeland, you have full citizenship in your homeland with all the benefits thereof, now return to your homeland and make it better if you want more benefits. Or, naturally, you may become a Genuine Imimigrant following the established and settled Immigration and Naturalization Laws of our Land, the United States. That is that.

    Any of our representatives, who should be representing their own citizens, but are instead trying to represent foreign citizens by pushing amnesty…have violated their oath of office and should be recalled from ‘representing’ citizens of the US.

    And to the legal citizens of another country who say “F-U” to our countries laws: Be happy we only send you back to your home country (ie deport) instead of arresting you and putting you in jail.

    I suggest that the “Senators” of the UC Berkeley Student Government read the US statute regarding immigration. The penalty for violating the statute includes a fine or IMPRISONMENT for not more than 6 months. Imprisonment is a criminal penalty not a civil penalty, and therefore a violation of the statute is a criminal offense and ILLEGAL, and the term, “Illegal Alien” is therefore correct. Even more correct would be the term, “Criminal Alien”.
    (8 U.S.C. § 1325 : US Code – Section 1325: Improper entry by alien)
    (a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.

    (b) Improper time or place; civil penalties Any alien who is apprehended while entering (or attempting to enter) the United States at a time or place other than as designated by immigration officers shall be subject to a civil penalty of – (1) at least $50 and not more than $250 for each such entry (or attempted entry); or (2) twice the amount specified in paragraph (1) in the case of an alien who has been previously subject to a civil penalty under this subsection.

    Civil penalties under this subsection are in addition to, and not in lieu of, any criminal or other civil penalties that may be imposed. –

    “Its approval marks at least the second time this semester that a public university’s student government has voted to eradicate the phrase.”

    You can’t have a country without borders, and you can’t define borders unless you control them. The immigration law of the United States clearly defines unauthorized entry as “illegal”. This student government vote marks at least the 2nd time this semester that students at a public university have voted for no borders to United States, and in doing so, have effectively voted for the end of the existence of the United States altogether.

    Berkeley students don’t need to know the law, because they make up their own.
    They don’t need to know the definitions of words, because they make up their own definitions.
    A. None of the students of interest are “immigrants”. Immigrants are defined in the U.S. law as persons who have applied for and been approved for naturalization. Every immigrant carries an “immigrant visa”. One cannot wish oneself into immigrant status.

    B. If they don’t like the word “illegal” as an adjective, as in “illegal migrants”, then “aliens, illegally resident” should satisfy their itch as well as proper designation in standard English of foreign nationals illegally resident – unless that itch is to ignore all immigration law and allow the U.C. system, CA, and the U.S. with hoards of more aliens, illegally resident.

  • watchtheborders

    Illegal immigrant is not a valid term for them. They are not immigrants. By international law, a large mass of armed insurgents, entering another country illegally, and in violation of their soverignity and laws is termed invasion. By definition an invading force is illegal within the framework of the Hague Convention.

    So I agree, drop the illegal, and lets just call them invaders. That includes the gangs, the terrorists that hide amongst them, the drug cartels and their mules, cohorts and all of the others who come here with them, yet never turn them in, and continue to look the other way.

    Invaders .. roll it over your tongue, and while you’re at it, make La Raza legally responsible for all they advocate for, who while here in limbo commit murder or other felonys. After all, parents can now be found guilty for a minorchild’s felony and charged, why not La Raza?

    Personally I’m glad they banned it. Immigrant implies that they legally came to this country so illegal immigrant doesn’t make sense to me in the first place. They shouldn’t be teaching people to sound ignorant by using contradicting words to describe someone. Illegal alien or stowaway or something along those lines are more descriptive and grammatically correct.

    How long is this crap going to go on? ‘Illegal’ means racism?? No. It just so happens that the ILLEGAL ALIENS are mostly from Mexico and happen to be Hispanic. I’m sick of this disgusting sympathy for people of whatever race who think they can violate US law with impunity. The influx of the illegals is helping, slow but sure, to drag our economy into the same dump they left in Mexico. There is a reason ‘undocumented immigrants’ are not allowed to be here. They are breaking the law. That’s what ILLEGAL means. Get it?

    What took them so-so long to ban the term? The children at Berkley should be very-very proud of themselves, promulgating an entire vocabulary to appease the law breakers. While no human is deemed as being illegal, human behavior certainly is. For the sake of the Nation, please stay in school for at least another 10 years and change your diapers daily.

  • Brett the Brit

  • JackCarter01

    What would these students prefer? Illegal resident? Illegal visitor? Illegal employee? All of these terms fit and are likely to be equally accurate. I’m really sorry that people’s feelings are hurt by the term illegal immigrant but the fact is that they are here illegally and it isn’t our fault that they neglected to do the paperwork.

    My son wanted to marry an illegal immigrant about 10 years ago and I insisted that at the very least she obtain a (Mexican) passport so that she would not also be undocumented. She did, they married, she applied for a visa, had to move back to Mexico for a year, and subsequently received her visa for her and her children. Now she is a legal immigrant complete with Green Card.

    I sympathize with the problem of being stigmatized by the term “illegal immigrant” but the term is both self explanatory and accurate. If they don’t want to be called that then they would have to go through the same nightmare that my daughter in law went through in order to become a legal immigrant.

    One reason we call students students is because they are still learning. In the current case somebody hasn’t figured that out yet so when the children make a profound statement about labels we can safely ignore them.

    And people castigate those centuries earlier(17th c) who burned women they believed were demons from hell….and they had great fears and little knowledge at the time. But, I suspect many would happily place individuals on a pyre if they uttered a derogatory word against a ‘protected’ person.

It’s their stupid actions which help to misinform and influence others and make most of us pay for their stupidity and ignorance. They should just shut up, study, and get jobs in the real world, not the land of fruits and nuts!
    By the way, Mexico and most Latin American countries are hypocrites. They shoot at those persons, that run from their officers when making an illegal entry into their country… By the way, I actually grew up in rural town in southern Mexico, so don’t give me your BS.

    the law abiding.

  • country_hick

    I agree totally! The term is ILLEGAL ALIEN. Immigrants come into this country following the rules. Illegal Aliens violate the Rule of Law then demand their “Rights”. Let’s see them pull that with any other country in the world. Perhaps we should adopt Mexico’s immigration laws? Would that make them happy? If you want to come to this country come on in, LEGALLY. If you sneak in you are here ILLEGALLY.

    Actually, I prefer to call the illegals “Illegal foreign invaders”, since they entered the country illegally.

    Next up UC Berkeley student government will ban people from saying “The sky is blue”.
    Politically correct speech is what these leftards decide is politically correct, to force their marxist agenda onto the rest of us.To a leftard, another person only has freedom of speech if what they say meets the approval of the former.

    What do college students (age group 18-25) know about the way the world works? The answer is not very much. What do college students know about the US constitution? The answer is even less. They have just recently emerged from their cocoon, and are even still covered by their parent’s health insurance policy.

    It is pretty screwed up when members of Congress, the President, and now the Colleges support anything considered ILLEGAL!
    Our lawmakers attend ILLEGAL gathering to protest Laws they are sworn to protect and uphold!
    Try this, do something ILLEGAL in front of a cop then try to debate the right and wrong of the law with them. The law is not design to be an option, it is the friggin LAW! In America the very people we hire to write, pass, and enforce laws are the very ones that break them. For some reason our leaders see the laws of our country as loose guideline that they are allowed to cross over without question. They give ILLEGAL guns to people that sell ILLEGAL drugs and it is suppose to be ok. Americans are damn fools for following these crooks!

  • HubertCumberdale99

    Racist? Unfair? How is this so?

    Also, how ironic that they are making this term illegal. So breaking the law isn’t a basis for being deemed “illegal” – what happens when someone uses this term? Will the user be engaging in illegal activity or will some other rule be put in place to protect the user from being accused of being “illegal”.

This metal disease has to stop right were it starts and thats in public schools with liberal rejects teaching your children that their way is the right way. Being a socialist/communist is good and living off of the government is not shameful in any way. For people who need welfare as a temporary lifeline thats one thing but these ppl living 3 and 4 generations off of the system is just wrong. So when the ILLEGAL THATS RIGHT ILLEGAL ALIENS COME WALTZING OVER THE BORDER FOR THERE AMNESTY OUR BELOVES UNITED STATES WILL BE NOTHING MORE THAN A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. Sickens me and it should sicken you.

  • slave2liberty

    Thanks for the suggestions you self-important doe-eyed, do-gooders, but I think that the term ILLEGAL aliens is totally acceptable in describing an individual’s residency status. They are according to legal definitions, “aliens” and their residency status is based on non-legal, or ILLEGAL conditions.

    ILLEGAL Alien, noun;

    a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization.

  • Dallas_Guy

    Whether a criminal or civil infraction, they are still acting unlawfully and, thus, here illegally. Why, exactly, are they so concerned about protecting the feelings of those who are illegal because they or their parents put them in the situation? If they cannot bear the stresses of being here illegally, there is an easy remedy. The illegal students probably have enough student aid to get a nonstop flight to where they are citizens. Trains and buses work, too. Since the rhetoric is illogical, the only conclusion is that, as usual, the left is obscuring its real motivations.

Farmers and ranchers who need to enter the area can check in with the ARMY and be given GPS tracking devices. Then man every tower with a army, navy or air force sniper and kill every, non-gps tracked human that enters that area!

    You stupid leftist students. An illegal is an illegal, no matter how much you censor free speech. Illegals should be deported immediately. If you are an illegal immigrant in Uruguay, and you are caught, you will spend months in a jail, the most horrific experience in your life. then you’ll be kicked out. In the US we are tolerant, so you don’t go to jail and wallow in your own filth. but you still deserve to be deported like a rat.

    when you’ve crossed the border illegally and have no documentation, like it or not, you are an illegal alien. This is an international term.

    If accuracy is the justification for their objection to “illegal”, then the word immigrant is equally inaccurate. Immigration is a legal process that these folks are not complying with when they enter this country sans documents. How about “undocumented taker”? Maybe we should show up in a USC class without documentation or evidence of a tuition payment and insist on being provided an education, although I have my doubts about the cost/benefit analysis even when the class is free.

    Are they here legally, with the sanction of the USA government? No? Then they are here illegally. Did they break a law in entering the USA without authorization? Yes. Then they are criminals. They are criminal illegal aliens.
    I suggest these students run on down to Mexico without the proper authorization, and find out how the Mexican government refers to them. Part of the term would be “imprisoned”.

    What’s “racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory” is for an entire group of people, mostly from one nation-state (Mexico), who came to this nation without invitation or legal authorization, to then be considered legally to possess more national rights than the legitimate citizens of the Republic.

    The free speech censor Nazis can take a walk.

    This open borders amnesty lunacy is a total disgrace and offense to every, single person the world over who played by the rules to gain legitimate, legal entry and then applied for, studied to earn, and eventually received, citizenship to this country.

  • BYODB

    “…phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.”

    Illegal Immigrant implies two things.

    One, Immigrant, that the person is not a citizen of the country in which they currently reside.

    Two, Illegal, that they are residing in said country against the laws of that country.

    Both of those descriptions are, in fact, accurate.

    Guess what? If you go down to Mexico to live and don’t get permission to do so they will call you an illegal immigrant because that is what you would be. They also will not be even HALF as nice as the United States is.

    I mean, rail against the system if you must but don’t ruin the English language and remove all meaning from words just because you find their meaning inconvenient Changing the word does not, in fact, change reality.

    • disqus_9WB7xtiCQv

      You can go ahead and say “wetback,” since it’s something that people will on themselves. Wetbacks are made, not born, a bit like car thieves or counterfeiters. There are no native wetbacks in Mexico. People must sneak into this country to attain that ignoble status.

    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

    The term “Illegal Immigrant” and/or “Illegal Alien” does not imply the person is illegal. It does imply the person entered a specific geographic area contrary to the wishes and laws of the inhabitants of that geographic area.

    So is it only dehumanizing to refer to foreign nationals violating our immigration laws in honest straightforward terms or do we need to not dehumanize our other fellow human beings that violate other parts of the criminal code?

    A thief doesn’t want to be called a thief. Maybe we need a new non-dehumanizing term like a wonderful human being who lacks proper documentation for the positions he appropriated from his fellow wonderful human beings without their consent.

    The entire point of the criminal code is so people know that if they violate it, they will have to live in fear of the consequences of violating the law. They are criminals and they have violated a just law. Of course, they should fear the consequences of their illegal activities.

    A nation must have the power to determine what foreign nationals come to their country, for what reason, and for how long. The laws these foreign nationals are violating are sound laws. Does anyone think Mexico, China, Russia, France, etc. does not have a right to set the terms of your visit to their country? Actually, probably these naive kids at Berkeley, but not most people with a little common sense and life experience.

    CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION – ARTICLE 1 – DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
    SEC. 2. (a) Every person may freely speak, write and publish his or her sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of this right. A law may not restrain or abridge liberty of speech or press. —

    California Constitution Article I Declaration Of Rights
    Section 26. – The provisions of this Constitution are mandatory and
    prohibitory, unless by express words they are declared to be otherwise.

    Quote from story above —- 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.” —

    Berkely Student Senators are practicing to become California State Senators who also continuously violate the California Constitution based on their belief that they are greater than it.

    CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION — ARTICLE 1 —DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
    Section 24. – Rights guaranteed by this Constitution are not dependent on those guaranteed by the United States Constitution ….. This declaration of rights may not be construed to impair or deny others retained by the people. —-

    Some people are more “people” than those other lesser people, who are more closely allied with simians of large size. Berkeley Student Senators for example are more “people”.

    Thus we had (once upon a time) before the overthrow of the California Constitution:
    California Constitution Article I Declaration Of Rights
    Section 7.5 – Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in
    California.

    These terms still properly define the people, who enter our country illegally.
    PC was never something I agreed with.

  • ImaHippyBurning

    That’s OK I prefer the term “American Destroying Scum” does that make you feel better sissy pants?

  • Mike

    If conservatives did something like they they would be accused of censorship but when the left does it is protecting basis human right….CENSORSHIP

  • Leland Williams Jr,

    Time to give California back to MEXICO. Start with San Fran/Berkely. No more Woodstock Nutters in the USA

  • JoeFab29

    “Banned Terms”??? Sound like a what you would expect in a totalitarian state.

  • Ummm

    I find it interesting that the term”immigrant without papers” is on their list of approved terms. Ask any descendant of Italian immigrants what the derogatory term “WOP” stands for. (“With Out Papers” in case you went to Berkeley)

    • MadMonk67

      LOL, so does an illegal alien eat at IWOP?

      I bet their pancakes suck.

  • Geoff

    The reality…these kids are Liberals in college. A good number of them will become Conservatives as they get older. Either way, they are the ones who are going to ultimately be supporting these illegal immigrants, and all the other 10s (and climbing) of millions of non-productive members of our society. Plus carrying the crippling burden of their school loans. By the time they’re the age of most of us…all the social support mechanisms will be broke, the cupboard bare, no crumbs left for them.

    All of our generations sins, are going to be dumped on their shoulders, and when I read articles like this…I’m OK with that.

    They have my sympathy. Not.

      When in college, I hated libs every day without fail. There were only a few Americans on campus – the rest were libs.

    The price of stupidity:

    Cali Resident Rate: $33,320 (on Campus residence) per Academic Year,

    Out-of-State Rate: $56,198 (on Campus residence) per Academic Year.

  • Larrytheman

    The most accurate term would include the person’s citizenship, and the fact that our government can now deport the person. So, “Deportable Mexican National” would be an example of a good choice.

    If we don’t wish to honor the person’s citizenship, we could simply say,
    “Deportable Alien.”

    “Undocumented” is typically not accurate. That term is used by Amnesty International for refugees who have fled a disaster or a genocide, and literally lack any identification. “Undocumented” has nothing to do with people from another country who sneak in or overstay their visa for economic reasons.

  • Mikey

    Your resolution offends me. Who do I sue?

  • Tim Miller

    Agreed, they are illegal aliens

  • snapperman

    Wow; Cal banning free speech; right up there with book burning…

  • Femghazi

    Illegal is wrong anyhow. Invaders is what they really are.

  • Tracy L. K.

    ARE YOU F’ING KIDDING ME? NEXT…..CHILD MOLESTORS & PEDOPHILES WILL SAY THOSE TERMS SHOULD BE BANNED! WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS END?

  • rentslave

    I don’t care as I prefer wetback.

  • Thomas in Jacksonville

    I agree that they are illegal aliens. I don’t care where they are from, as long as they are from someplace on Earth, if they are in this country illegally they should be rounded up and sent home. I also don’t care how long they have been here. They are costing us billions of $$. They are taking industry and construction jobs that should go to American citizens. The largest group of criminals in California prisons are illegal aliens.

  • Bud

    You can have free speech but only if you say what I want you to say.

  • Ssdd

    Give the little geeks a dictionary.until you have experienced the negative side of these illegal invaders stfu.

  • Jim Rall

    Why do we allow Progressive Fascists to run our Colleges. Are these administrators so dumb as to not know they are violating 1st A Rights.

  • Kevin Cowart

    “Illegal” has been replaced with “trespasser”

  • Voltair

    …….the American voter owes an apology to every one of Americas war dead for the Kenyan Marxist that they have voted into office. So this is the thanks and honor they get for giving their lives for there country…….!

  • ABW

    Enjoy your new state residents. Hopefully they will take advantage of all the state and federal benefits.

  • Mike

    Sorry Berkeley, I won’t use the term illegal immigrant” anymore. They’re “wetbacks”.

  • JC526

    Because to the Progressive – nothing is illegal.

  • randykelly

    So a thief eating out of your frig is an unannounced guest. These students should post their info so illegals will no where to go for free stuff, or not. Liberals are only generous with other peoples money.

  • poppy haynes

    It is not surprising that the young idiots attending Berkeley would decide that two words in the dictionary can not be used together because their freaking sensibilities are offended!
    Illegal immigrants are a fact so get over it! And there is absolutely nothing racial about illegal immigration. They come from every country and race. I guess these uneducated children think that the only people in this country illegally are brown.

    It is pitiful that citizens of the United States, leaders and future leaders, do not care enough about their country to protect its borders and sovereignty. Soon they will live with the real consequences of their bleeding hearts.

  • JC

    The first symtom of liberalism is the ability to leave reality

  • MadMonk67

    Ladies and gentlemen, observe the future useful idiots in training…

  • americanlatina11

    Illegal alien is the accurate legal definition. There is also legal resident alien. There is also citizen. There is also deported illegal alien criminal.

    How is “illegal alien” a race? There are illegal aliens of every race and every nationality from the planet.

    stupid, just stupid.

    As for a university, no words should ever be banned…you know, freedom of thought and expression and all of that.

  • dareisay

    The silly Left! Words, that is all they care about. Just like Obama, changing words to make his rules and regulations sound better….They are actually stupid enough to think others buy this tactic! They are still illegal aliens!

  • Team USA

    UC Berkley has outlawed the use of the term “illegal immigrant?” That is so gay.

  • iamaduck

    Who really cares, this is Berkeley. I never hire anyone from this school they tend to be to much trouble and you really do not get anything special from them. So, if you are a hiring manager stay away from this school it is not worth it.

  • Fordsno1

    Oh, good. The speech police in action. Can thought control be far behind?

  • Guest

    It really pisses me off to no end knowing that these ILLEGAL border jumpers have more benefits than I do, I have lived in this country my whole life, I have fought in 2 wars, lost good friends and these leaches can come here and have the audacity to say that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT is racist………

  • ndacboss

    Yeah, there is no such thing as illegal immigrant. Anyone in any country illegally is NOT AN IMMIGRANT, that person is a criminal. Immigration is a defined process, and does not include invasion.

  • Eric Enderle

    OK, I’ve got a one-size-fits-all: INVADERS.
