Get it Right...Illegal Alien, Not Migrant

I always find it offensive when news organization try to rewrite reality in feeble attempts to get public sympathy for someone undeserving of it. One such case is found in an Associated Press piece from Tucson. Apparently an illegal alien woman was separated from her illegal alien daughter when she injured her ankle. The author/journalist went to a great deal of trouble to avoid using the PROPER LEGAL TERM of ILLEGAL ALIEN in the title of the piece, as well as in the body of the article.

Migrant girl rescued from Ariz. desert

ACCURATE TITLE: Illegal Alien Girl Captured In Ariz. Desert, Reunited With Her Illegal Alien Mother.

The Associated Press

TUCSON - U.S. Border Patrol agents say they have rescued(captured)a 12-year-old (illegal alien) Guatemalan girl who had been left behind in the southern Arizona desert by a smuggler.

Supervisory agent Esmeralda Marroquin says the (illegal alien) girl was with her (illegal alien) mother, several other (illegal aliens...delete word migrants) migrants and a smuggler crossing the desert about 40 miles southwest of Tucson near Arivaca on Wednesday evening. The (illegal alien) mother hurt her leg and couldn't keep up with the group.

Marroquin says the (illegal alien) mother asked the smuggler to leave her (illegal alien) daughter with her but the smuggler refused. Agents found the (illegal alien) mother overnight and began searching for the (illegal alien) daughter.

Searchers found the (illegal alien) girl alone in the desert at about 8 a.m. on Thursday about two miles from where her (illegal alien) mother was found. The smuggler and the other (illegal aliens...delete word migrants) migrants were not located.
