Gov Jerry Brown outlawed the word alien. Is this guy a jerk or what?
So Rons, your poll; "Gov Brown outlawed the word Alien, is this guy a jerk or what"
Please explain how this is not biased, explain to me how giving the definition of alien informs about what this was, and please explain why it it relevant.
Why would he eliminate from Cali Law? IDK.
Relevance is How nuts can the left get!
I have no opinion on what he signed.
I would like to know what your personal motivation was to post the poll the way you did, on info, no real choice, no link to educate.
Google is alway available. Spoon feeding not necessary. When I heard it on CNN I thought it was lame.
He is a demented ideologue, running a banana republic, who has decided to "fix" his little corner of the world to the point the entire state has become unlivable. Huzzah!
This is what republicans mean when they refer to political correctness run amok.
Illegal aliens to illegal immigrants to undocumented workers.
Now Hillary and Barack call the Dreamers!
*NASA makes first contact with aliens*
*entire state gets arrested*
Given the context was California's labor code, and not individuals saying it, I doubt that will be a problem
Thank you Matt, research wins again!
So only ppl running businesses. And this matters... how? "Illegal alien" is a *legal* designation. Not a personal attack. It's called "pandering."
Eliana-I don't think this was the right decision, but, the poll's presentation was very misleading of what actually occurred.
That happens on a recurring basis, Matt. But my point stands.
I agree that "illegal alien" isn't a personal attack. I'm saying the poll was attempting to make this into an issue of general free speech, not the labor code. As stupid as I think this is, that's a massive misrepresentation
Read the definition. dreamers are Illegal Aliens in the eyes of the real law.
Matt, why did Gov Brown eliminate the word from Cali law? To me it was to be PC. Why was the poll misleading?
Ok maybe outlaw should have been banned.
The poll is misleading in that it is worded to imply that it was a general prohibition on the lines of "It shall be prohibited to say illegal alien in California" not the changing of CA Labor code (as wrong as I think this move is).
Matt, Never used the word "illegal" just "alien". I provided a definition of the word. Nothing really about spacemen.
What about freedom of speech?
He didn't prevent the saying of it. He signed a bill removing the term from CA Labor Law
The link wouldn't work for me so had to interpret. As long as he isn't limiting FoS and only changes the words in legal docs, the word used doesn't change the intent of the law in theory. Drug dealer vs undocumented pharmacist! Lol
Ron's link was to the dictionary, not an article about the issue. www.latimes.com/local/political/la-me-pc-gov-jerry-brown-signs-bills-to-help-immigrants-20150810-story.html
I'm sorry but as the daughter of an immigrant who came here legally, I have a strict view on immigration. Come here legally or face consequences. My father waited years for approval. He feels the same way! Why have laws if they mean nothing?
I'm not saying I agree with Brown's decision, but I think part of the issue is when you have something between 11-20 million undocumented immigrants in the country, something is going on, but not trying to see what can be improved won't help the
It is simply political. And, IMO, stupid.
Not sure that's a sufficient explanation.
Yeah, when it comes to life long worthless politicians , I have few words.
