DOJ Announces They Aren’t Calling Illegals ‘Undocumenteds’ Anymore

“…to avoid stigmatizing border jumpers…”

Published

on

Once again President Trump is undoing the lunacy of the Obama Administration.

During the dark days of extreme liberalism of the Barack Hussein Obama administration the powers that be decided that it wasn’t good to call a duck by its name. So because of this they unilaterally decided that government officials weren’t going to be allowed to refer to illegal aliens as such, instead, the proper term to them as “undocumented immigrant” which makes it sound like these people were immigrants who just needed paper. Not lawbreakers who didn’t respect our nation’s sovereignty or their fellow man so they decided to cut to the front of the immigration line.

Here is more on this via The Daily Wire:

“The Department of Justice has ordered the reversal of an unofficial Obama Administration-era policy referring to illegal immigrants as “undocumented migrants,” according to a new report in The Washington Times.

Trending: In Historic 9-0 Decision, Supreme Court Just Shredded Democrats – YUGE!!!!

The report likely doesn’t represent any significant change in how the DOJ treats border jumpers, but it does signal that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ DOJ will be less accommodating to lawbreakers — and less likely to view illegal immigration as merely a social problem rather than a crime wave.

According to the Times, the DOJ told attorneys last week that they must refer to illegal immigrants as “illegal aliens,” the term used in the U.S. Code. Attorneys cannot replace “illegal” with “undocumented” so as to avoid stigmatizing border jumpers, a practice that has become popular in the pro-immigration movement.

The note, which went out to all of Sessions’ deputies, “was designed to clear up some confusion and to [help officials] be consistent in the way we draft our releases.”

The U.S. Code is one of the last remaining reference works that stipulates the use of “illegal immigrants.” Since the debate on immigration began, most stylebooks and guides suggest using “undocumented” as a way for journalists to subtly inject a political narrative into news stories.”

Now all this might seem trivial and of no consequence, but as Chicks On The Right have reported, it’s actually not. You see, this is how the left wins the argument. They seem to change the language. Just like they have done with the LGBT agenda. They sometimes rename things and make things seem different.

As an example just look at the left, they have gone from communist to socialist, to liberal, to progressive and now they have no problem going back to socialist since for some sick reason a 75-year-old retrograde from the cold war like Bernie Sanders all of a sudden made it cool again.

With President Trump and his administration, this madness is over and we are finally able to reclaim the correct terms. An illegal alien is just that and they don’t deserve the respect of being called an “immigrant” of any kind. We are the most generous nation in the world when it comes to immigration and taking in refugees there is no need to have to keep people in our nation who disrespected us by breaking the law to come here.

Here is more information as to why the Obama Administration had changed the language via AP:

“A number of people felt that 「illegal immigrant」 was the best choice at the time. They also believed the always-evolving English language might soon yield a different choice and we should stay in the conversation.

Also, we had in other areas been ridding the Stylebook of labels. The new section on mental health issues argues for using credibly sourced diagnoses instead of labels. Saying someone was 「diagnosed with schizophrenia」 instead of schizophrenic, for example.

And that discussion about labeling people, instead of behavior, led us back to 「illegal immigrant」 again.

We concluded that to be consistent, we needed to change our guidance.

So we have.

Is this the best way to describe someone in a country without permission? We believe that it is for now. We also believe more evolution is likely down the road.

Will the new guidance make it harder for writers? Perhaps just a bit at first. But while labels may be more facile, they are not accurate.

I suspect now we will hear from some language lovers who will find other labels in the AP Stylebook. We welcome that engagement. Get in touch at [email protected] or, if you are an AP Stylebook Online subscriber, through the 「Ask the Editor」 page.

Change is a part of AP Style because the English language is constantly evolving, enriched by new words, phrases and uses. Our goal always is to use the most precise and accurate words so that the meaning is clear to any reader anywhere.

The updated entry is being added immediately to the AP Stylebook Online and Manual de Estilo Online de la AP, the new Spanish-language Stylebook. It also will appear in the new print edition and Stylebook Mobile, coming out later in the spring. It reads as follows:

illegal immigration Entering or residing in a country in violation of civil or criminal law. Except in direct quotes essential to the story, use illegal only to refer to an action, not a person: illegal immigration, but not illegal immigrant. Acceptable variations include living in or entering a country illegally or without legal permission.

Except in direct quotations, do not use the terms illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented.

Do not describe people as violating immigration laws without attribution.

Specify wherever possible how someone entered the country illegally and from where. Crossed the border? Overstayed a visa? What nationality?

People who were brought into the country as children should not be described as having immigrated illegally. For people granted a temporary right to remain in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, use temporary resident status, with details on the program lower in the story.”

What a difference an election can make!

Trump Just Achieved Major Victory Days After Omarosa Started Slanderous Attack – CONGRATS

Silly leftists… Trump always wins!

Published

on

I have been involved with politics for a long time. In all that time I have never seen a politician come out on top the way that President Trump does time after time after time. No matter what is thrown at him, Trump bounces back and Americans seem to love him more and more for it. He’s a fighter and that is quintessentially American. Trump has brought tons of jobs back to America and has dropped the unemployment number to record lows. There are literally more jobs than workers out there these days it seems. I can’t remember since Ronald Reagan when that happened.

Trump’s approval rating among black voters has risen to 36 percent in a recent Rasmussen poll. The number seems totally unaffected by allegations of racism from former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman. In fact, she seems to be helping Trump’s numbers. That’s got to just enrage her and the left. Teflon Don strikes again and is having the last laugh once more. That’s up from the 29 percent reported by Rasmussen two weeks ago. A year ago, that number stood at 19 percent. I detect a trend and it’s a good one for 2020.

This daily tracking poll was released on Aug. 15th. It seems to indicate that black Americans aren’t fooled by Omarosa’s slanderous allegations of racism on the part of the president. Congratulations are in order for the president as this is a major victory over efforts by the left and the media to take President Trump down. It’s not working at all.

From The Epoch Times:

“Among other things, Manigault Newman accused Trump of using a racial slur during the production of his reality television show “The Apprentice,” on which she used to work with Trump. The president, the White House, and multiple insiders have denied the claims.

“Trump’s pitch to black Americans has centered around the promise of jobs. Partly due to Trump cutting taxes and eliminating regulations, the economy has been on a roll, with unemployment among blacks hovering around historical lows, a fact the administration has repeatedly highlighted.

“’Since Election Day 2016, we have created 3.8 million new jobs. Unemployment for African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans has reached an all-time low. America is back!” Vice President Mike Pence wrote on Twitter on Aug. 3

“A Yougov poll from Aug. 11-13 showed Trump’s approval rating at 8 percent among blacks, up from 3 percent on Aug. 9. That result, however, wasn’t filtered down to likely voters. Among all registered voters, the approval was 45 percent in its latest poll.

“Overall approval of Trump among likely voters remained steady at 49 percent, marking a slight increase from numbers around 46 percent in July.”

Unemployment for Hispanic workers in the United States has fallen to a new record-low rate of 4.5 percent in July, surpassing the record 4.6 percent set just a month earlier. The overall unemployment rate dropped to 3.9 percent from 4 percent in June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported. Asian unemployment dropped to 3.1 percent while black unemployment, still hovering around historical lows, increased slightly to 6.6 percent. All of this portends an even bigger landslide for President Trump in the next presidential election if things keep heading in this direction.

And yet even with the statistics speaking for themselves, the media is twisting this as the very opposite of what it is. USA Today, for instance, a couple of days ago claimed that the Trump-Omarosa feud was ‘deepening the wedge with black voters ahead of midterms’. What the media is proclaiming and what is reality seem to be two very different things here.

I contend this is the way it is for most Americans and President Trump. They are watching what the president does and what his results are. Voters are no longer listening to the mainstream media and they have long ago ceased to trust them. Omarosa notwithstanding, there is no evidence that President Trump is racist. None at all. Trump is known to be friends with countless people from many backgrounds, and even prominent civil rights figures such as Jesse Jackson praised Trump before he announced that he was running for president. Perception is reality and Americans perceive that Trump is not a racist.

From the Conservative Tribune:

“Even a poll conducted by the NAACP — one of the most well-known black liberal groups in America — revealed that while there’s still a long way to go, Trump is faring much better with the black community than many of his Republican predecessors.

“That poll put Trump’s support among black Americans at 21 percent. No, it doesn’t seem very high … but when you consider how low past Republicans have fared with minorities, it looks downright magnificent.

“It’s also bad news for Democrats. The left has long relied on black Americans voting blue at the polls, and if that demographic continues to walk away from liberal politicians, the ability of Democrats to win future elections is in serious jeopardy.

“’The Democrats heavily depend on 90-plus-percent turnout and 90-plus-percent support for Democrats among African-Americans. If that level of support falls to 71%, the game is more or less over,” explained American Thinker.

“If black voters begin to vote Republican in higher numbers or simply stay home on election day, the numbers say that Democrats just can’t win.

“The NAACP poll putting black opposition to Trump at 79 percent brings the left precariously close to that tipping point — and other polls show the president doing even better with blacks.

“'(Donald Trump’s) approval ratings among black voters: 29%,” stated Rasmussen Reports, a respected polling group, a week ago. “This time last year: 15%.”

“That suggests that black opposition to Trump is right at 71 percent … yes, exactly at the “tipping point” beyond which Democrats cannot win future presidential elections. And Trump keeps doing better with blacks, not worse.”

Looking at those numbers economically, I’d say Trump will get another four years and the Democrats are basically doomed in the next election. Victory will be very sweet while the left continues to scream “Racism!” in the background, Trump will go on to serve yet another term and continue to help make America great again. Good times.

Omarosa Just Slapped With Bombshell Sexual Accusation And Trump Gets Last Laugh [Video]

Zarma just hit Omarosa hard!

Published

on

Omarosa Manigault Newman has been splattered all over the media for days. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing her face, which frankly I grew tired of long ago. Omarosa keeps making scandalous claims that seem to have little to no merit and even less proof. This is a woman who was employed at one time by Al Gore in the Clinton administration. She was fired there too and she evidently never learned her lesson. The left breathlessly reports every insinuation she puts forth as if it came from the heavens. They mocked her when she praised Trump, but now that she’s turned on him they take her lies as gospel. But while Omarosa is accusing Trump and the White House of everything under the sun, she has some accusations herself to deal with. I just love karma.

There are many things I disagree with Piers Morgon on. But over the last couple of years, I have come to the conclusion that even though we differ on certain subjects, he’s a man of principle and stands by what he believes, come hell or high water. Morgan won the season of The Apprentice on which Omarosa appeared, so he is very familiar with her antics. He just took her apart on an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox. Morgan detailed why no one in their right mind should ever trust a thing this woman says.

That’s not all though. Morgan dropped a bombshell when he told Tucker that she propositioned him. Mic drop.

From Real Clear Politics:

“PIERS MORGAN: Day One, first challenge, I’ve never met this woman. She sidles up to me, and says, hey Pierce, we should have a ‘showmance.’ On ‘The Apprentice,’ everyone has s*x with each other. So you and I could do that, and then we could sell it and make loads of money.

“I said, ‘Are you completely deluded? What?’

“She said, ‘What’s the matter with you, are you gay?’

“I said, ‘No, just because I don’t want to have s*x with you on this show doesn’t mean I am gay.’

“TUCKER CARLSON: This is your #MeToo moment!

“MORGAN: I’m a victim here! Of Omarosa, Tucker! But she gave me, then for four or five weeks, unrelenting five barrels of abuse, tirades, homophobic stuff, really vicious, nasty stuff. I couldn’t believe it. She got beaten in the show, I ended up winning.

“Cut forward to the 2016 campaign, I suddenly realize she’s going to be working for Donald Trump the candidate, and I saw like, ‘What?! How can that even be?’ Then I hear, when he wins, that she is going to be in the White House. Again, I have a lot of respect for Donald Trump, but I’m afraid with Omarosa this makes no sense. Apparently, she achieved absolutely nothing in her time there, other than disrupting anybody.

“You can bet your life she was there listening, plotting, scheming, probably tape recording.

“We’re now going to have her on Celebrity Big Brother, and all the stuff coming out of that, then we’re going to have the book, then the docu-series, and then the Lifetime movie, at which point you and I are going to have to leave the country because it is so ridiculously absurd.”

That’s funny and outrageous all at once. And you know what? I believe it. She strikes me as just the sort of person to pull a stunt like that and then get uber vindictive over it. One wonders where all the major media outlets other than Fox News are over this revelation. Gee, I’m so shocked they aren’t rushing to cover a slur against Piers Morgan’s sexual preferences. But Omarosa accuses Trump of racial slurs with no evidence put forth and they pounce. Go figure.

Look, Piers Morgan may be a leftist in nature, but he worked with President Trump on his reality show. If anyone would know how Omarosa really rolls, it would be someone like Piers Morgan. And it appears that there is a genuine animosity between Morgan and Omarosa. I’m not surprised in the least and I’m siding with Piers Morgan on this one. And the guy’s got it going on when it comes to the former aide. Piers tweeted a picture of Omarosa emptying a glass over his head with the caption: “Omarosa & me bonding in Celebrity Apprentice. Lovely lady.” He continued by saying: “Nobody on the entire planet has demeaned public discourse more than Omarosa. She’s a lying, conniving, duplicitous, foul-mouthed, repellent charlatan. Yet now we’re supposed to feel sorry for her? Forgive me while I puke.” Tell us how you really feel Piers and then move over.

The Good Morning Britain personality faced a backlash for standing up for Trump but Morgan insisted that he was not uncritical of the President, saying: “I only defend Trump when I think he’s right or the hysteria over something he has said or done is overblown. When I think he’s wrong, which is often, I say so loudly & clearly.” And that is what I have observed with Piers Morgan. He actually is a true journalist in the strictest sense of the word. And anyone who calls out Omarosa for her crap and tells it like it really is has earned my respect. Looks like Trump gets the last laugh after all.
