Memo to Journalists / Editors: Drop the I-Word

Memo to Journalists / Editors: Drop the I-Word

"The U.S. Supreme Court has come a long way since former Chief Justice William Rehnquist referred to undocumented immigrants as "wetbacks." In an opinion earlier this year on another Arizona immigration law, Chief Justice John Roberts, Jr. knowingly used the terms, "unauthorized aliens" and "unauthorized workers."  It's time for journalists and editors to take the same step forward." - Jeff Biggers, Dec. 12, 2011.
