Less than one week after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told the Senate that the platform does not censor conservatives, the term "illegal alien" has been tagged as "hate speech" on the liberal social media platform.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a nonpartisan organization, is complaining that Twitter is not allowing it to promote any tweets which include the supposed hate speech, “illegal alien.”

Back in 2013, the Associated Press Style Guide proudly announced that it was no longer sanctioning the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person: “Except in direct quotations, do not use the terms illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented.”

And as far back as 2016, when she was running for Senate, Kamala Harris declared the term “illegal alien” offensive and that “we must stop treating undocumented workers as criminals in this country” — a pretty good sign of where her priorities stand when it comes to illegal immigrants vs. U.S. citizens.

We must not allow the social justice warriors — including Twitter and its CEO — to tell us which words we can use and which we cant. Especially when these words are legal terms that can be found in our Code of Federal Regulations.

Phrases such as “illegal alien” are not “hate speech.” Social media users who use the term are not “hateful.”

Activists and social media platforms who wish to change the political landscape and outlaw speech are the radicals who need to be regulated, not regular internet users who are employing the language enshrined in our history and law books.

Insanity on the left.    to ban any phrase or word is censorship.   if we want to say illegal alien then say it.  too bad what the backlash is.   free speech is more important.    these people forget that as JEA9 reminds us the 1952 Immigration Law defines them as illegal aliens.  thanx

‘Watch: Female HS Student Says She ‘Felt Violated’ After Seeing Trans Student’s Penis In Locker Room

“I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it”

 A Pennsylvania student attending Honesdale High School has filed a complaint with the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights after her school administrators allowed a trans woman, a biological male who feels he is a woman, to dress and undress in the female locker room.

The student said she felt violated and scared when she looked across the aisle in the locker room to discover a member of the opposite sex in his underwear. In a video released by her legal team, she says it was obvious he was biologically male, as she “could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it.”

“It was the first period, and I had gym class,” said the student, “And I walked in with all my friends, and while I was putting on my pants, I heard a man’s voice, so I turned around, and he’s standing there on the opposite aisle looking at me.”

“I glanced down and I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear, and what was beneath it.”

She added that having a man apparently gawking at her while in various stages of undress made her feel unsafe.

“When I knew that a man was looking at me, I felt very violated, and very scared,” she said. “Especially looking at me while I am getting dressed.”

Her attorney said that this should be considered a form of sexual harassment in the eyes of the law.

“Opening up restrooms and locker room facilities to members of the opposite sex is sexual harassment,” said Andrea Shaw, the high school student’s attorney, “And like many forms of sexual harassment the girls in this school have little power over their situation.”

The attorney also notes that the school’s only attempt to remedy the situation was to allow the female high school student to wait to change until the biologically male student was finished, making her chronically late to gym class.

According to local media, the school district’s superintendent claims he is not able to comment on the case, but stated that the school is following the letter of the law. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is expected to take up the case, otherwise biologically male students will continue to be allowed to dress and undress with biologically females.
