The term "illegal immigrant"

The term "illegal immigrant" | Human rights worldwide | Scoop.it

"It frames the debate on immigration: It pins the blame on immigrants, not those who employ them and often take advantage of them, whom no one ever seems to call “illegal employers”. Nor does it blame the American government’s immigration policy, which is at least 11 million cases behind in meeting the country’s labour needs. It makes it seem like the answer is to punish immigrants – even though some are undocumented through no fault of their own. It makes police raids on Latino neighbourhoods seem reasonable – as well as racial profiling (Arizona SB 1070). It makes it easy for Republicans to kill reasonable reform by calling it “amnesty for illegals”, as they did in 2006. And, worst of all, it makes it seem like undocumented immigrants should have no rights at all."

Carlos Batara's curator insight, April 12, 2013 2:14 PM


For years, I've tried to explain, as politely as possible, to immigration reform opponents the many myths and misconceptions about immigration reform.


See: http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com/immigration-attorney-battle-false-immigrant-labels.html

 

This is one of the biggest myths.

 

It's a BIG issue not because of the policy issue.  Rather, it's due to the disrepect it places on a certain class of immigrants.  As the author notes, its makes racism respectable.

 

Well, racism is not respectable.  And no amount of justification, explanation, or excuse can change that reality.

 

An act is illegal - not a person.

<<el artículo 318 bis del Código establecería una pena de multa de tres a doce meses e incluso prisión de seis meses a dos años a quien "intencionadamente ayude a una persona que no sea nacional de un Estado miembro de la Unión Europea a entrar en el territorio de otro Estado miembro o a transitar a través del mismo vulnerando la legislación de dicho Estado sobre entrada o tránsito de extranjeros" >>
