Current Event Cat - Illegal Immigrant

Current Event Cat of the Day:

The Associated Press, the largest news-gathering outlet in the world, has decided to drop the term “illegal immigrant” from its 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,” Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll announced on Tuesday.

The decision is part of the company’s on-going attempt to rid their Stylebook of labels. Other newspapers/networks who have previously pledged not to use the term include: ABC, NBC, and CNN. ReaganPlusCats, the smallest news-gathering outlet in the world, intends to disregard the guidelines for hilarity’s sake.
