The largest news-gathering outlet in the world will no longer use the term "illegal immigrant." Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll informed readers of the decision via the Associated Press blog.
"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," Carroll wrote.
