What’s going on with the New York City Commission on Human Rights and who gave them the power and authority to play speech police, banning the term “illegal alien” and threatening to report someone to ICE?
The City of New York wants to frustrate the enforcement of immigration laws; the city is trying to forbid most if not all reporting of illegal aliens to the federal government.
The Commission forbids such reports if the person making the report is “motivated” by the illegal alien’s “immigration status,” but what other motive could a reporting party legitimately have?
The whole reason to report an illegal alien to the federal government is precisely because of their immigration status.
The once great city of New York is beginning to get grow more regulated and socialist by the day, home of Ellis Island known for it’s “Legal Immigration” once upon a time, is now home to the far left regulators such as the de Blasio’s, Cuomo’s and other crony globalists, rewriting history as well as laws.
Can you believe that if you are heard calling someone an “illegal alien” or making any kind of a threat to report them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, (ICE) presently will resort in a $250,000 fine in New York City, surely this must be some kind of bizarre joke?
“Human Rights” is just coded language for the agenda of dismantling traditional America and the evisceration of the Constitution by eliminating the First Amendment. This is the foreseen outcome of hate crime legislation when it first began. Punishment for thoughts and now speech rather than actions.
What about those incidents when a certain percentage of “illegal aliens” are violating laws and harming others, does this make them exempt from their crimes because no one is allowed to refer to them as the criminal “illegal aliens”?
This is exactly another liberal agenda and communist policing of nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives and the entire English language that hints at the term “illegal alien,” and is paving the way for some liberal Attorney to run with this wild card obstruction of our First Amendment.
“New York City is seeking to use an overly broad ordinance against discriminatory harassment to restrict speech about illegal aliens, such as use of the word “illegal alien” to describe workers or tenants. That violates the First Amendment.
The Commission states, “Even an employer’s single comment made in circumstances where that comment would signal discriminatory views about one’s immigration status or national origin may be enough to constitute harassment. The use of the terms “illegal alien” and “illegals,” with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons in the workplace, amounts to unlawful discrimination under the NYCHRL.”
New York wants to ban the phrase “illegal alien,” Should we remind Ms. Malalis that is how illegal aliens are described throughout Title 8 of the U.S. Code, and employers are not just permitted but required to have a “discriminatory view” of illegal aliens, since, under federal law, it is illegal to hire them.
Rewriting new narratives is what the far left does, and her name is Carmelyn P. Malalis, just this September 2019, NYC Commission on Human Rights published the Legal Enforcement Guidance on Discrimination on the Basis of Immigration Status and National Origin. According to the Bio from the NY City Human Rights Commission, their Chair Commissioner, Carmelyn P. Malalis was appointed (the Commission) by Mayor Bill de Blasio in November 2014, following more than a decade in private practice as an advocate for employees rights in the workplace. She is the daughter of Filipino immigrants, and married to a woman from Ethiopia, who are raising two biracial daughters. She’s called the “Human Rights Champion” among the LGBT community in America’s most populated city as she believes she is the Joan of Arc in the fight against discrimination and perhaps it is she who discriminates against the masses.
She is among the minority in many ways, after all, this is America, she may reside in her protected New York City bubble, but this land was created upon Christian-Judeo values, when it comes to enforcing the Constitutional law of the land, she may get away with trying to create new regulations she and her cronies want to see enforced nationwide, yet this remains to be seen, as the majority of New Yorkers, do not agree with her politics.
Prior to her appointment, Commissioner Malalis was a partner at Outten & Golden LLP where she co-founded and co-chaired it’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Workplace Rights Practice Group and it’s Disability and Family Responsibilities Discrimination Practice Group, and successfully represented employees in negotiations, agency proceedings, and litigation involving claims of sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination based on race, national origin, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy, disability, and religion.
Throughout her career, Ms. Malalis has demonstrated a fierce commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion and preventing and prosecuting discrimination and intolerance through the guise of normalized extremism. This is exactly why this power has been bestowed upon her by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Since she assumed her role as Chari and Commissioner at the Commission in February 2015, Commissioner Malalis has revitalized the agency, making it a recognized venue for justice for all New Yorkers through increased enforcement and robust public education and outreach to prevent discrimination in New York City.
It’s alleged through her guise of battling to combat discrimination and intolerance, Malalis has revitalized the agency, making it a recognized venue for justice for all New Yorkers through increased enforcement and robust public education and outreach to prevent discrimination in New York City.
She has previously served on the New York City Bar Association’s Executive Committee, Human Rights Watch’s Advisory Committee of the LGBT Rights Project, the American Bar Association’s Section on Labor and Employment Law Committee on Diversity in the Legal Profession, the New York City Bar’s Committee on LGBT Rights, and the board of Queers for Economic Justice.
Commissioner Malalis earned her J.D. from the Northeastern University School of Law and received a B.A. in Women’s Studies from Yale University.
She and her wife live in Brooklyn with their two children.
New York is also among the most linguistically diverse cities in the world, with hundreds of languages being spoken throughout the five boroughs.
Approximately 3.2 million New York City residents were born outside of the United States, representing 37% of the City’s population.1 Nearly 1.4 million New York City residents, or 16% of the population, are non-citizens. More than 50% of children in New York City have a foreign born parent, about 60% of New Yorkers live in a household with at least one immigrant.
Throughout the passage and growth of New York City, millions of legal immigrants have settled here, building homes, communities, businesses, churches, non profit organizations, small businesses, corporations, educational and art institutions, all contributing to the fabric of the city in the most immeasurable ways, hence the very reason why it is so important to protect our U.S. Constitutional laws from the very forces of foreign and domestic terrorists who use their platforms to indoctrinate the masses.
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which respect an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.
Censorship, anyone? I am a “Legal” American citizen. My First Amendment Right clearly states I can say “illegal alien,” that phrase states a fact, not an opinion.
