I love it. Breaking the law is now OK. When is it going to be OK to kill someone whenever you wish? Why do you think our country is in such a bad place right now and going to get worse? The rule of law now means nothing. AP no longer cares about laws. Just let people do whatever they want. We don't care. To me they will always be ILLEGAL ALIENS OR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS PERIOD.

Well it is not murder, just another form of post pregnancy abortion. What is the difference between having a heartbeat or having celebrated a 35 birthday? When a mother tells their child, "I wish you were never born!", can that be a legitimate reason to perform a late term abortion?

Someone broke the law coming into the country. They entered illegally, they are an alien from another country, hence they are an "illegal alien"! Of course the leftist media is all concerned about hurting feelings. Well my feelings get hurt every time they want to excuse an act criminality because they do not want to offend the criminal.

The Associated Press is changing the way it describes people who come to the United States illegally. In a post on the AP blog titled "'Illegal immigrant' no more," AP Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll explains the decision to erase "illegal immigrant" from the AP Stylebook.

The Stylebook no longer sanctions the term “illegal immigrant” or the use of “illegal” to describe a person. Instead, it tells users that “illegal” should describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.

Why did we make the change?
