        Committee Ranking Member John Conyers of Michigan. "Our citizens are

John Conyers (Riccardo S Savi/Getty Images) WASHINGTON--During opening statements for the first House Judiciary Committee hearing addressing comprehensive immigration reform, the top ranking Democrat on the committee urged his fellow members and the witnesses present to avoid using the phrase "illegal immigrant" during the daylong proceedings. "I hope no one uses the term 'illegal immigrants' here today," said Committee Ranking Member John Conyers of Michigan. "Our citizens are not illeg--the people in this country are not illegal. They're new Americans that are immigrants, and I think we can forge a path to citizenship that will be able to pass muster." Tuesday's hearing is the first step in what's expected to be a complicated, months-long process, which will give members an opportunity to hear testimonies from a variety of experts on the issue. A bipartisan group of eight senators last week unveiled a set of principles that they hope will serve as a blueprint for the bill in the Senate, while the House is working on its own version. Supporters of the issue hope to have a bill ready for a vote by summer.

More sharing Why 'illegal immigrant' is a slur By Charles Garcia, Special to CNN updated 12:14 PM EDT, Fri July 6, 2012 A supporter of Arizona's immigration policy pickets outside the US Supreme Court in Washington in April. A supporter of Arizona's immigration policy pickets outside the US Supreme Court in Washington in April. STORY HIGHLIGHTS * Charles Garcia: Supreme Court majority was wise to avoid term "illegal immigrant" * The term suggests that individuals, rather than actions, are unlawful, he says * He says foreign nationals residing unlawfully in the US are not criminals * Repetition of phrases like "illegal immigrant" is like a poison that infects society, Garcia says Editor's note: Charles Garcia, who has served in the administrations of four presidents, of both parties, is the CEO of Garcia Trujillo, a business focused on the Hispanic market. He was named in the book "Hispanics in the USA: Making History" as one of 14 Hispanic role models for the nation. Lea este artculo en espaol/Read this article in Spanish (CNN) -- Last month's Supreme Court decision in the landmark Arizona immigration case was groundbreaking for what it omitted: the words "illegal immigrants" and "illegal aliens," except when quoting other sources. The court's nonjudgmental language established a humanistic approach to our current restructuring of immigration policy. When you label someone an "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" or just plain "illegal," you are effectively saying the individual, as opposed to the actions the person has taken, is unlawful. The terms imply the very existence of an unauthorized migrant in America is criminal. In this country, there is still a presumption of innocence that requires a jury to convict someone of a crime. Even alleged terrorists and child molesters aren't labeled illegals. By becoming judge, jury and executioner, you dehumanize the individual and generate animosity toward them. Charles Garcia Charles Garcia The term "illegal immigrant" was first used in 1939 as a slur by the British toward Jews who were fleeing the Nazis and entering Palestine without authorization. Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel aptly said that "no human being is illegal." Navarrette: "Illegal immigrant" is the uncomfortable truth Migrant workers residing unlawfully in the US are not -- and never have been -- criminals. They are subject to deportation, through a civil administrative procedure that differs from criminal prosecution, and where judges have wide discretion to allow certain foreign nationals to remain here. News: For immigrants and opponents, court's ruling hits their real lives Immigration ruling leaves questions Ariz. Brewer: This is not the end Toobin: Guidance from court not clear Another misconception is that the vast majority of migrant workers currently out of status sneak across our southern border in the middle of the night. almost half enter the US with a valid tourist or work visa and overstay their allotted time. Many go to school, find a job, get married and start a family. Jose Gutierrez, who was the first combat veteran to die in the Iraq War. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and three other justices, stated: "As a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to remain present in the United States." The court also ruled that it was not a crime to seek or engage in unauthorized employment. As Kennedy explained, removal of an unauthorized migrant is a civil matter where even if the person is out of status, federal officials have wide discretion to determine whether deportation makes sense. For example, if an unauthorized person is trying to support his family by working or has "children born in the United States, long ties to the community, or a record of distinguished military service," officials may let him stay. Also, if individuals or their families might be politically persecuted or harmed upon return to their country of origin, they may also remain in the United States. University of Memphis journalism professor Thomas Hrach conducted a study of 122,000 news stories published between 2000 and 2010, to determine which terms are being used to describe foreign nationals in the US who are out of status. He found that 89% of the time during this period, journalists used the biased terms "illegal immigrant" and "illegal alien." Hrach discovered that there was a substantial increase in the use of the term "illegal immigrant," which he correlated back to the Associated Press Stylebook's decision in 2004 to recommend "illegal immigrant" to its members. For the AP to claim that "illegal immigrant" is "accurate and neutral" is like Moody's giving Bernie Madoff's hedge fund a triple-A rating for safety and creditworthiness. It's almost as if the AP were following the script of pollster and Fox News contributor Frank Luntz, considered the foremost GOP expert on crafting the perfect conservative political message. The secret memorandum almost perfectly captures Mitt Romney's position on immigration -- along with that of every anti-immigrant politician and conservative pundit. For maximum impact, Luntz urges Republicans to offer fearful rhetoric: "This is about overcrowding of YOUR schools, emergency room chaos in YOUR hospitals, the increase in YOUR taxes, and the crime in YOUR communities." He also encourages them to talk about "border security," because after 9/11, this "argument does well among all voters -- even hardcore Democrats," as it conjures up the specter of terrorism. George Orwell's classic "Nineteen Eighty-Four" shows how even a free society is susceptible to manipulation by overdosing on worn-out prefabricated phrases that convert people into lifeless dummies, who become easy prey for the political class. News: For immigrant graduates, a 'leap of faith has been answered,' educator says In "Nineteen Eighty-Four," Orwell creates a character named Syme who I find eerily similar to Luntz. Syme is a fast-talking word genius in the research department of the Ministry of Truth. He invents doublespeak for Big Brother and edits the Newspeak Dictionary by destroying words that might lead to "thoughtcrimes." Section B contains the doublespeak words with political implications that will spread in speakers' minds like a poison. In Luntz's book "Words That Work," Appendix B lists "The 21 Political Words and Phrases You Should Never Say Again." For example, destroy "undocumented worker" and instead say "illegal immigrant," because "the label" you use "determines the attitudes people have toward them." In his essay "Politics and the English Language," Orwell warned that one must be constantly on guard against a ready-made phrase that "anaesthetizes a portion of one's brain." But Orwell also wrote that "from time to time one can even, if one jeers loudly enough, send some worn-out and useless phrase ... into the dustbin, where it belongs" -- just like the US Supreme Court did.

Photos from the party--held by Kappa Sigma on Friday--posted to Facebook showed students in traditional Asian attire. "' Three seniors from the university's Asian Students Association posted fliers across Duke's campus showing the invite and photos. "If you're not outraged," a caption added to one of the fliers reads, "you're not paying attention." formally recognized by the school last year after being unrecognized for nearly a decade. Kappa Sigma did not immediately return an email seeking comment. According to the Chronicle, a report was filed with the university's Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life complaining about the email invite to the event, which was originally called "Kappa Sigma Asia Prime."
