The Associated Press (AP) took their war-on-words to a whole new level on this week by referring to illegal aliens as "undocumented citizens."The AP has now corrected the story:
The report, published Tuesday, was on Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s response to President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“Emanuel spoke as Chicago Public Schools marked the first day of classes Tuesday,” AP reported. “The mayor told students at Solorio Academy High School they ‘are welcome in the city of Chicago.’ The Chicago Sun-Times reports that school officials say about a third of the school's students are undocumented citizens. Emanuel said Chicago schools "will be a Trump-free zone.”
The Associated Press incorrectly described the students who could be affected. They are living in the country illegally, not undocumented citizens.Okay, but how did we get to the point where one third of Chicago students are illegal?
A corrected version of the story is below: ...
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that school officials say about a third of the school's students are living in the country illegally. Emanuel said Chicago schools "will be a Trump-free zone."
Chicago is a long way from the Mexican border, and from the coasts.
