NYC bans calling someone an ‘illegal alien’ out of hate, $250,000 fine

Whatever happened to the old adage "sticks and stones can break my bones but names can never hurt me?"

(INTELLIHUB) — The following report goes to show just how absurd and out of touch the left is with reality and how unconstitutional laws in the United States have become.

Just imagine a $250,000 fine for merely calling someone an illegal. Yes, it is now a reality in New York City. Not to mention, you can no longer report an “illegal alien” to immigration because that would be perceived by the illegal as a “threat.”

From the NY Post:

It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate.

The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — areoutlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights.

“‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’” reads one passage of the memo. “The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”

Is this really America? What about freedom of speech?

Do illegals now have full immunity in NYC?
