Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed into law legislation that replaces the terms “alien” and “illegal alien” in state law with the politically correct terms.

United States News, United States Headlines

Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed legislation into law that replaces the word “alien” in state statutes with the politically correct term “noncitizen,” which was proposed by Democratic lawmakers.

“New York will both match the language anticipated to be in federal codes and demonstrate respect and humanity to its immigrant population,” reads a legislative memo attached to the bill. that changes to laws covering cannabis, parks, public health, labor, public authorities, real estate, economic development and a litany of other topics will take effect immediately.The legislation, sponsored by Assemblywoman Maritza Davila (D-Brooklyn) and state Sen. Jessica Ramos (D-Queens) passed both chambers by big bipartisan margins last spring.

attracted controversy from conservatives who said state lawmakers and the governor ought to focus on challenges other than replacing antiquated language. Another ‘Woke’ Criminals 1st Law supported by our Governor instead of doing her job & protecting the public from rampant crime,” state Sen. Jim Tedisco (R-Glenville) tweeted in August.

GovKathyHochul is this better? LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder

I’m so happy GovKathyHochul is focusing on the important things like changing a word rather than prosecuting rapists, murderers, and violent criminals. LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder

Thank god

Her name is a literal demons name.

New York and Corruptifornia are going communist woketopia first.

That’s what alien means…

what the ... what about undocumented? noncitizen is like unpersoning - it's garbage

Because that's more important that stopping crime.


lmfao oh that makes it much better. When do WE put a stop to this shit?


That was very important, hopefully she can now sleep at night while 3 more people get attacked on the subway. The aliens, I mean noncitizens, should always be put before law-abiding New Yorkers.

She needs to stop with the bull already and clean up NYC. They and the media ignore the problem so their followers have no idea what’s happening.

Is there not more pressing business in NY she should be working on?

That's...not...accurate...but the narrative must be protected.

Of all the problems in NY that had to be 1. SMH

They will always be illegal.

Wow, she’s really working hard!

Noncitizens (who where coached) who made false claims to Federal Agt. at point of entry is illegal.

I am so glad she is putting in some hard work for this state....

Illegal alien is a legal term. This is ridiculous. No matter what you call them they broke the law entering this country and they should be sent home. We are a joke. No other country tolerates this!


It’s these big hard hitting moves that will get us into prosperity. Obviously already fixed homelessness and poverty and now we work on inclusive language.

You misspelled 'illegals' KathyHochul

They will keep redefining things until they label into law US citizens as being illegals. We are facing it seems the prequel to the novel, '1984.'

The left is determined to make language completely meaningless. Illegal alien is precise language that has been around for hundreds of years. I certainly will never stop using it.

New York Post should be used as a toilet paper as it is born

So how much is it going to cost the State to rewrite, republish, and reprint all affected codes just for her stupid game of semantics?

Illegal Non-Cotizen. I like that better.

Bc priorities!!! 😔

Gotta have Priorities

'noncitizen' is not demeaning?

Crime is not under control, but she's tackling the hard stuff.

Is it really necessary to pass legislation so that people aren’t offended? Big government completely out of control.

We already have a dictionary, we don't need a librarian — we need a governor.

Working small to big I see

Clown world !

Illegal. They are illegal.

Illegals = criminals


You get what you voted for……good luck.

Well, that changes things. They are are still a giant suck on the legal citizens of NY. Great call GovKathyHochul Ridiculous!

That's great, I love it. Makes it very clear that they have no business being here, and they should not participate in US affairs.

What a joke. florida

Publicity stunt. Nothing to see here. Always will be illegal aliens.

What is next, noncriminal?

Don't work too much.

They can add that to their bio 'pronouns' on social media 😅

Very productive action.She deserves a Nobel

So now we call them an illegal noncitizen…good…got it.

Noncitizen abduction.

Nobel Prize worthy accomplishment. 🤡🤡💩💩

Doesn't matter they are still illegal aliens. I am starting to think aliens have taken over our country. Like the 'pods' from Invasion of the Body Snatchers. That could explain all the craziness going on. 🤪


To”May”toe, To”mah”toe. Just make sure those “noncitizens” are here legally and don’t get to vote! Do the right effing thing!

Murder, killed, not living,...dead

Tackling the big issues, while people are getting assaulted and murdered by the criminals who walk back into the street minutes after being arrested. They voted for this!!

Correction, illegal alien...

'Preditors vs Non Citizens' just doesn't have the same ring.

How about “Wet Back”?

good old semantics

Sooo illegal noncitizen?

Loony alert!!

A clown suit for her

There, she fixed the homeless and crime problem.

E9ACTIONHER0 Kathy Hochul must be an alien....Borg, perhaps ?


I think we all knew that extra-terrestrials weren't citizens, Kathy.

The left wastes so much time/money with crap like this. 🤦‍♂️

Very busy at making our state a better place I see Kathy. What other useless things have you been up to? GovKathyHochul

Making moves before the real aliens invade the world.

Such important work, the homeless can wait.

Meanwhile, non Jewish are referred as Goyim.

Yep… exactly what we expected

Alien alien alien alien alien alien Alien alien alien alien alien alien Alien alien alien alien alien alien Alien alien alien alien alien alien Alien alien alien alien alien alien Alien alien alien alien alien alien

Was this a request of the Men in Black?

It won't change a thing when crime continues to go up.

She's an alien 👽

Wow! Such a pressing matter. That takes top precedents over the crime bill. I see she’s heading in the right direction. 🙄

Illegal alien is what I will will refer to them as....

Okay…? ‘Foreigner, alien, noncitizen.’ Basically all meaning the same thing.

With all the problems in the State currently crime, homelessness, economy etc. These are the issues they are worried about!? We are doomed in this State.

Wow what an incredible waste of time

Well now she is a alien 👽

These people keep destroying our country and using taxpayers' money in the process. Enough already!

ConceptualJames I just saw your post about the newspeak re: “Climate Change” Care to comment on this? Seems like more of the same.

Invasive species is what I prefer

It’s accurate

How’s that crime fighting going governor?!!! Get your priorities straight!!!

Wow, it’s a good thing because now I’ll be able to afford my mortgage!

Of ALL the things this Gov needs to worry about 🤦‍♀️ leave nouns to teachers and focus on CRIME! And how about those 15,000+ nursing home patients who DIED

Put a bag on it or her whatever she is ugly

jackson_slocum Doing the tough work we’ve come to expect from a nearly $1 trillion state government…

Hochul looks more like the alien than the alien

“Alex. I’ll take ‘Reasons I live in Florida’ for $400 please”

Seriously, aren’t there more important issues she should be addressing
