The Guardian, Mirror, Independent, Sun, Times, Telegraph, Daily Mail and Daily Express need to stop using the term illegal to describe migrants and instead use accurate alternatives including; ‘undocumented migrants’, ‘migrants without papers’ and ‘unauthorized migrant’.
Why is this important?
With increasing cuts to education, healthcare, social care and high cost of housing, the quality of life for the poorest is decreasing as a direct result of decision made by those in power. Scapegoating and peddling hate towards migrants and people of colour is being used as cover for the bad choices that have negatively affected the lives of everyday people.
The media needs to stop helping to scapegoat migrants and end the use of the term 'illegal immigrants' as it dehumanises and desensitises feelings towards migrants. This is not only morally wrong but also factually incorrect.
