I was recently directed to this website: Colorlines - Drop the I-Word. I encourage everyone to sign the pledge, 'I don't call people illegals.'
I wholeheartedly believe that such a term thrown around by politicians and media voices alike only furthers the dehumanization of immigrants - undocumented and documented. We are talking about human beings - living, breathing, bleeding, human beings.
Acts are illegal, immigrants are people.
