If it came from anyone associated with CNN as this piece does there is a high probability of some serious entertainment value.
These folks truly live in a parallel universe.

Sally Kohn wrote in a CNN column on Independence day that the term “Illegal Immigrants” needs to cease in commentary on immigration reform, calling for a complete end to it’s public usage as it is offensive and politically incorrect. Kohn equivocated the term to being as socially deplorable as “n*gger” and “f*ggot”.
“Today, opponents of immigration reform attack undocumented immigrants as ‘illegal immigrants.’ Even worse, like anti-immigration extremists, some prominent elected officials use the term ‘illegals.’ Maine Gov. Paul LePage, a Republican, said, ‘I urge all Mainers to tell your city councilors and selectmen to stop handing out your money to illegals.’ ” Kohn wrote in her piece for CNN.
She goes on to call for the elimination of the term “illegal” from public discourse, essentially arguing that social pressure should be employed to rid American parlance of the adjective. The progressive is doing her part to impose that pressure, supporting the political correctness police group “Race Forward” who has a current campaign to get media organizations to drop ‘Drop The I-Word” in all reporting on immigration.
“So far, the campaign has succeeded in getting the Associated Press, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times and many other outlets to stop using the word. But the pressure continues on The New York Times, The Washington Post and radio and television outlets. And the campaign around media usage is just one step toward influencing and ultimately ending the use of the word ‘illegal’ by everyone in America.” Kohn wrote.
Kohn proposes a politically positive word to replace this label in those who are entering our country illegally, suggesting that these individuals be referred to as “undocumented immigrants”.
(I’m fond of illegal aliens which they in fact are.)
