You can be fined $250K if you called someone an "illegal alien" in NYC

I think this may get challenged in courts and eventually tossed. Sounds like it goes against the first amendment.

Also, you can no longer threaten to call ICE on someone “based on a discriminatory motive” or discriminate based on English proficiency .

New York City has banned the term “illegal alien” when used “with intent to demean, humiliate or harass a person,” the city said.

The city’s new guidelines, announced last week, also ban discrimination against someone based on their English proficiency and threats to call immigration authorities on someone “based on a discriminatory motive.” These violations can result in fines up to $250,000.

The guidance is for all public accommodations, employment and housing, the city’s Commission on Human Rights said.

Just when you think the radical left can’t get any more nuts. :roll_eyes:

It only applies if you use the term to demean harass or humiliate a person. It might be upheld

Well, first of all - how do you even prove that ? Second - whatever the intent is, it’s still free speech, isn’t it ?

How about calling someone a racist in a hateful manner?

Libs here would be broke…

The big question.

If an illegal alien calls another illegal alien an illegal alien with intent to demean, humiliate or harass said illegal alien, will they be deported in addition to the fine ? Because they’re an illegal alien, you know :wink:

“The president’s slogan, the mayor said, should be “Make America hate again,[ because he’s trying to foment division as a political campaign.”](https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/14/politics/bill-de-blasio-2020-ice-raids-cnntv/index.html

Foment division? Between whom? Those who have a legal right to be here and those who are here illegally? I certainly hope so. There should be a division between those actively breaking the law and those who are not.

But go ahead…make open borders the slogan of the Democrats this year.
