New York City is attempting to criminalize using the phrase “illegal alien” in a new vaguely worded, reaching and anti-First Amendment municipal law.
A new 29-page order released by the city’s Commission on Human Rights specifies fines of $250,000 per offense for using the phrase in a manner deemed to be “hateful” by city bureaucrats.
“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 use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”
United States code refers to individuals who lack valid legal authorization to be in the country as illegal aliens. It’s totally appropriate to refer to those who immigrate illegally as illegal aliens, despite a consistent from the left over the past decade to brand immigration law violators as “undocumented immigrants.”
New York City’s law mainly extends to employers, the city’s guidelines describing potential violations in which an employer questions the legal status of his employees. It would be much more difficult for city PC police to persecute ordinary citizens for simply using the commonly used phrase “illegal aliens,” although city hall’s directive makes it unclear if they’re intending to do so.
The city’s commission on human rights is phrasing their unprecedented attack on free speech as a reactionary measure in response to immigration patriots and operations of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the city. The city also recently established a $1 million grant for illegals fighting deportation proceedings in court.
As New York City’s progressive masters roll out the red carpets for those who break America’s immigration law, it appears they take a far more vindictive approach towards actual Americans who might be less than thrilled with mass illegal immigration.
Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder
Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.
Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.
Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.
“I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.
Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
