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.

Nuts. 1952 Immigration Law defines them as "Illegal Aliens". Then this would explain how this woman got into America....LMAO

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

 Dem Governor Threatens Trump: “Something’s Got To Happen To This Guy… He’s Sabotaging The World Order”

“If we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”

Another Democrat has called for ‘something to happen’ to President Trump in order to save the democratic process in America.

California Gov. Jerry Brown made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing the death toll during hurricanes last year in Puerto Rico.

“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” Brown declared.

“I mean he’s not telling the truth. He keeps changing his mind. He’s sabotaging the world order in many respects.” the Governor claimed.

“So it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country,” he continued.

“The Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.” Brown urged.

The tacit threat comes in the wake of Maxine Waters encouraging anti-Trumpers to “knock off” the President.
