Marquette Urges Students Not to Call Illegal Immigrants ‘Illegal’

“in favor of terms such as ‘undocumented’ or ‘unauthorized’ immigrant”

Diversity officials on campus say that the term “illegal” is dehumanizing.

Campus Reform reports:

Marquette begs students not to use ‘the i-word’ for illegals

Marquette University’s department of “Diversity and Inclusion” is encouraging undergraduates to “drop the ‘i-word’” when referring to illegal immigrants.

According to the “Undocumented Student Terminology” published on the school’s website, “not only is the term ‘illegal’ inaccurate, it is dehumanizing.”

“When referring to an individual who is residing in the United Stated without authorization from the federal government, we would encourage you to drop the ‘i-word’ in favor of terms such as ‘undocumented’ or ‘unauthorized’ immigrant,” the university states.

Likewise, the school explains that the acceptable way to refer to immigrants with no domestic legal status is by using words such as “undocumented” or “unauthorized.”

“Many people also live in households that are considered ‘mixed status,’” Marquette explains. “A mixed status family is one in which at least one member is residing legally in the United States and at least one member is not. Often, this includes children born in the United States to unauthorized immigrant parents.”

In addition to the Diversity and Inclusion website, the school’s College of Education website likewise suggests that students create a “safe space” for illegals and “deal directly with any derogatory language or behaviors from peers that are rooted in condescending attitudes towards immigrants and use these as teachable moments.”

I would like to refer to murderers as pro-choice from here on out…it just sounds better, even if it isn’t true.

    I also believe we should use more sensitive language when dealing with touchy situations. Instead of the crude word “murder” we should use something kinder and gentler to describe the act; I suggest the pro-choice alternative retroactive abortion.

They are NOT “illegal immigrants”, the correct term is “illegal alien”.

    Exactly. That’s the term used in the statutes. If it’s good enough for Uncle Sam, it’s good enough for snowflakes.

Yep and undocumented is actually inaccurate. If they are at this university, there are documents to back them up. People don’t go to college “off the grid”.

The dems keep insisting that nearly all of the illegals are due to overstaying visas (in their arguments against the wall), so there are documents that the illegals just let lapse and are trying to change the rules.
