NYC is now declaring war on free speech even when it’s 100% true. You can be arrested or sued for calling an illegal alien an illegal alien. In other words, it’s legal to be illegal but its a crime to tell someone they are illegal.
It is also illegal to say you are calling ICE. But the good news is that it’s not illegal to call ICE. So, keep your mouth shut and rush to the nearest phone.
NYC Mayor de Blasio has found money to use for lawyers for illegal aliens facing deportation but not one penny for American citizens who are victims of a crime committed by illegal aliens.
A 29-page directive released by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights on Thursday outlined “new legal enforcement guidance and actions against discrimination based on immigration status and national origin.” Violations of their new “hate” laws are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense.
“‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’” the memo says. “The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”
The commission said that they are “currently investigating 4 cases involving discrimination based on threats to call ICE in order to harass, threaten, or intimidate a victim.”
One example of a hypothetical situation that would be a violation of their new rules is if a “hotel prohibits its housekeepers from speaking Spanish while cleaning because it would ‘offend’ hotel guests or make them uncomfortable.”
The New York Post reports that the “Commission on Human Rights made clear that the directive is, at least in part, a rebuke of federal crackdowns on illegal immigration.”
“In the face of increasingly hostile national rhetoric, we will do everything in our power to make sure our treasured immigrant communities are able to live with dignity and respect, free of harassment and bias,” Carmelyn Malalis, the agency’s commissioner, told the Post.
