Marquette University Offers Guide to ‘Undocumented Student Terminology’

Marquette University Offers Guide to ‘Undocumented Student Terminology’

“These individuals are not illegal”

In other words, this issue must be talked about in a way that pleases the left.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Marquette University publishes guide to ‘Undocumented Student Terminology’

A Jesuit university in Wisconsin has published a language guide for terminology related to “undocumented students” on their official school website.

According to their website, Marquette University’s guide to “Undocumented Student Terminology” is an effort to provide “guidance for how campus leaders, faculty, staff, and students can show their support through compassionate and inclusive language.”

Included among the language guidelines, students are requested to completely avoid usage of the term “illegal” when referring to undocumented immigrants. According to the school’s website, it is wrong to call them illegal immigrants because all humans are innocent until convicted in court.

“These individuals are not illegal,” the site reads. “The term ‘illegal immigrant’ eschews one of our most fundamental and cherished legal principles of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”

The argument is baseless, however, because by being here without proper documentation or permission, these individuals are breaking the law. While they are not “criminal aliens” unless they have been convicted of a crime in a court of law, simply remaining in the country illegally does not exempt one from a responsibility to follow the law.

Just like the James gang tried to make an undocumented withdrawl from a bank in Northfield, Minnesota, and the Dalton gang tried to make undocumented withdrawls from two banks on the same day in Coffeville, Kansas.

Being an immigrant without documents is illegal. One would think people running a university would be able to use a dictionary, and apply logic.

Perhaps we should call those people pushing these new definitions “Bloviating Advocates of Silly Theories And Ridiculous Dogma in Science”. This is a bit long so perhaps the acronym would be more appropriate.

“The term ‘illegal immigrant’ eschews one of our most fundamental and cherished legal principles of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.”

Wrong….
Here’s from an article trying to advocate for THEIR position that still points out the obvious.

“There’s no dispute at the absolute core,” said Andrew Kent, a constitutional scholar at Fordham Law. “If somebody is picked up by police they the have same Miranda and due process rights in all contexts except immigration law.”
