Kiev: From now on, in New York, they will be fined for using the expression "illegal alien" (illegal alien).
It is reported by CNN.
These are the new anti-discrimination rules due to immigration status and national origin that have been approved by the city authorities. The Human Rights Commission concluded that the term “illegal migrant” is mainly used specifically for the purpose of discrimination. For violation of these rules, fines of up to $ 250 thousand are provided.
They can also be fined for prohibiting hotel employees from speaking their native language, threats by apartment lessors to complain to migrant services about migrant residents in case of conflict, as well as the requirement to "speak English or clean their country". All this is also considered discrimination.
