NY Times Chooses ‘Euphemism’ Over Reality on Illegals, Laments Trump’s ‘Steep Cuts’


More euphemistic, politically correct terminology about illegal immigrants from the New York Times, as Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Ron Nixon reported in Friday’s paper. The soft-pedaling even made the headline: “Proposed Budget Takes Broad Aim at Undocumented Immigrants — Money for Jails, Not for Benefits.”

The phrase “undocumented immigrants” (which the Times itself has admitted is a euphemism) was used six times in the story, while the accurate phrase “illegal immigrants” was avoided completely. The closest Davis and Nixon came was “illegal border crossers,” adhering to the paper’s righteous insistence that there are no illegal people, only illegal acts.
