'Illegal Alien': A term you will not hear about Atlanta kidnapping perpTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
One of the perpetrators was Juan Alberto Contreras-Ramirez, who uses the alias Juan Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez. He has a prior drug arrest in the United States which was dismissed by a court because of the failure to obtain a search warrant. He stayed in the country after that prior arrest. Yes, he's a 'Mexican national', and he's being held by ICE for "being in the country illegally."
In other words, Juan Alberto Contreras-Ramirez, alias Juan Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez, is ... you guessed it ... an ILLEGAL ALIEN.
That is very relevant to the story, but as Professor William Jacobson points out over at Legal Insurrection ... that is a term you will not hear in the mainstream media.
The Associated Press and numerous other media outlets have banned the terms "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" after a relentless campaign by immigration activists who illogically claimed the terms were racist, and who want to soften the reality of crime committed by people in the country illegally.More here.
The recent kidnapping and rescue of a teenager in Atlanta demonstrates how the media is wording around the term, and diminishing the facts by making it unclear if the perpetrator was in the country illegally.
And, by the way, don't bother asking Professor Jacobson why THE ILLEGAL ALIEN Juan Alberto Contreras-Ramirez, alias Juan Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez was not deported after his involvement in drug trafficking was known (He has a prior drug arrest in the United States which was dismissed by a court because of the failure to obtain a search warrant.) ... ask Obama!
