Arizona's Supreme Court Justice has accepted a tongue-lashing from the state's Hispanic Bar Association--aka "Los Abagados"--regarding the "inflammatory" use of the words "illegal" and "aliens" in state courtrooms (via Judicial Watch via Michelle Malkin). Such terms, the group says, are used as "an instrument of hate," adding: "There is no place in the today's immigration debate for the term "illegal" to describe a person...."
Not only did the Chief Justice accept her tongue-lashing, she thanked them for it, and assured the Hispanic legal group that she was going to make sure "the Commission on Minorities in the Judiciary would consider whether any further distribution of your request would be helpful...."
Malkin predicts this same language restriction will become Obama administration policy. I wish I could say I disagree.
