Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth McGregor has banned the use of the terms "Illegal" and "alien" in the courtroom when referring to illegal aliens. Bowing to the demands of a Hispanic racist group posing as a legitimate organization, Los Abogados - Arizona’s Hispanic Bar Association, made the demands because they say that they cause a prejudicial view of those who are illegal aliens and is a derogatory term for an illegal alien. Instead they include nicer words to use for illegal aliens, their Reconquistadore supporters and their Proponents for amnesty activists.
Readers may remember when I covered the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, a group of the disavows an Immigration epidemic, Immigration crisis and Immigrant invasion, so much so that the NAHJ made a demand to the media to no longer use the term illegal aliens. We here at The Realm will not bow to these ridiculous demands made by these supporters of armies of immigrants. These two groups of Pro-illegal immigration activists and Open borders advocates obviously are working together to destroy our nation and to do so without alerting anyone to the truth.
In their demands sent to the judge is a list of terms that are acceptable to this racist group who supports illegal aliens, and terms that are not acceptable to this racist group that supports illegal invaders
[The letter] points out that no human being is illegal and that a national Hispanic journalism association has roundly criticized the reference for dehumanizing a segment of the population. The letter goes on to criticize the state’s High Court for using the term “illegals” in at least two opinions and the term “illegal aliens” in dozens of others.
This is what our country is becoming folks. According to the below you cannot even use the term illegal immigration anymore. All immigration is the same. Political correctness to cover up their continued illegal invasion of our country. And just remember, the judge agreed to these terms. The full letter is available at Judicial Watch

I can see their point, but it's all semantics. "Alien" is defined in the dictionary as a foreigner. A person cannot be illegal, but their actions can; much like a knife, which is not inherently illegal, but can be used for illegal purposes. So, an alien cannot be illegal, but can be here illegally, and it's just easier to say "illegal alien." For normal everyday conversation, I don't think it matters, but as far as a judge's ruling, I think it should be grammatically correct.

"a segment of the population." ?
This is the whole point; the population? Illegal aliens are not part of our population. Their status is awaiting identification for deportation.
We have laws preventing hospitals and the police from asking their legal status. Who passed these laws that are undermining our immigration laws? Ask anyway, consider it an undocumented question.
AND AN ILLEGAL ALIEN IS NOT AN IMMIGRANT AS AN IMMIGRANT HAS PERMISSION TO BE IN OUR COUNTRY. AN IMMIGRANT MAKES A PROMISE AND COMMITMENT TO LEARN ENGLISH AND ASSIMILATE AND RESPECTS OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS.
