New York City's Commission on Human Rights announced on Thursday that residents could face up to $250,000 in fines if they use terms such as "illegal alien ... with intent to demean, humiliate or harass a person."

"Hate has no place here," a tweet from the City of New York read. The city's announcement ticked off a list of offensive ways to address immigrants -- including threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or harassing someone for their "limited English proficiency."

"Threatening to call ICE when motivated by discrimination, derogatory use of the term 'illegal alien,' and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment under the NYC Human Rights Law," the announcement read.

It clarified that calling ICE with a "discriminatory motive" was a violation. It was not immediately clear what New York Citywould consider a call to ICE lacking in "discriminatory motive."

"Fines of up to $250,000 can be assessed for each act of willful discrimination, and damages are available to complainants," the city said.

Nazi march in Skokie IL. Quite sure there's been more since then.

usually they get hated for protecting unpopular stuff like that. What I don't know is do they get called or just weigh in on stuff when it happens.

we are used to it, so "meh" ....


the term was coined specifically targeting Chinese immigrants ... popular newspaper cartoonists at the end of the 19th century, when several Federal laws were enacted to limit or prevent Chinese immigation, drew such exaggerated images of Chinese people so as to emphasize their appearance as alien....

So much for the freedom of speech in America. The USA needs to reclaim its rights.

This would be laughable if it wasn't so insidious. A hate crime to say illegal alien, a hate crime to call ICE? Nonsense. Enforce the dam law, call an illegal alien exactly what they are. Boo hoo. New York City can go to hell. Don't limit my freedom of speech you bunch of Aholes. And they dam sure aren't stopping my right to uphold the law. Can we give them back to the Indians?

No one here as an illegal alien deserves anything but deportation and or imprisonment. Keep America under the control of the true Americans, the ones with families that fought and died in wars dating back to the Revolution, the ones that suffered under economic depressions and made due, the ones that continue to fight to keep it from being takin over by communists.

The intent of words has no bearing on the fact it is everyone's right to use any word they want to describe a thing that is said thing.fog

My impression after spending a few days in upstate New York is that it is nothing like New York City.

When Trump gets enough friends in other nations and in high places that think more like a freedom loving American instead of a anarcho-communists, things will change and we will start seeing true justice enacted upon the treasonous conspirators in our very govt and our colleges. Most normal people were indoctrinated as children in public school with globalist policies and ideas but as we grew up we formed our own opinions, its only the infantile minds that took that garbage as truth.

past experiments of extreme nationalism didn't end well...human history is replete with examples...maybe a new form of nationalism, which recognizes every nation is a part of one world, could be something to advance humanity...

Well, if he gets out soon, he could run it from his dacha. Otherwise a no go, Leavenworth wouldn't extend him enough computer privileges to do so.

No, we are non bigoted people. Your noise is stupid. You are a relic from a shameful period of our history. When you say ignorant things you will be treated as the fool you seem to be. If you want to see mentally incompetent look in a mirror. Does your azz ever get jealous of what comes out of your mouth. Personally , I disagree with you because you are wrong, and I don't want to appear to be an idiot.
