I wrote the following letter to reporter Kibret Markos [e-mail him] about his story regarding the sexual assault of a six-year-old girl by non-English speaking illegal alien Silas Quixal ["Worker Guilty of Sex Assault on Girl, 6," Kibret Markos, New Jersey Media Group, October 6, 2007]:
"You describe the principal character in this article as an `undocumented immigrant.` Actually, he`s an illegal alien as stated in your quote in your story from lawyer Todd Siegel. An immigrant is someone here legally.
"Perhaps your editors force this terminology upon you. I`ve heard the excuse before that `We don`t know he`s illegal.` You presumably don`t know he`s `undocumented,` either—or did you do a no-stones-unturned investigation that yielded no documents?
`Political language…is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.`"[Politics and the English Language, 1946]
