Rutgers Student Fired by Campus Newspaper for Using Term ‘Illegal Alien’

Rutgers Student Fired by Campus Newspaper for Using Term ‘Illegal Alien’

“It was the final straw”

When did it become an offense to use language appropriately? Oh right, when the speech police took over academia.

The College Fix reports:

Rutgers student fired from campus newspaper after writing ‘illegal alien’ in column

The Rutgers University student who hosted anti-feminist provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos for his first U.S. college event says the student newspaper fired him Monday because of his conservative views.

Aviv Khavich published his final column for The Daily Targum Sunday night, arguing that immigration enforcement is not “anti-immigrant.”

He spoke as an immigrant himself, born in Israel after his Ashkenazi Jewish parents fled Belarus in the wake of the Soviet Union’s collapse.

But the trigger for the firing may have been Khavich’s demand that his column include the phrase “illegal aliens” to describe those in the country illegally.

It was the final straw for the Daily’s editor, who said Khavich repeatedly fought over “stylistic” editing changes to his columns over the past several months.
