New York City bans calling someone an 'illegal alien'

New York City's Commission on Human Rights announced that residents could face up to $250,000 in fines if they use terms such as "illegal alien with intent to demean, humiliate or harass a person."

"Threatening to call ICE when motivated by discrimination, derogatory use of the term 'illegal alien,' and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment under the NYC Human Rights Law," the announcement read.

"Fines of up to $250,000 can be assessed for each act of willful discrimination, and damages are available to complainants," the city said.

"The NYC Commission on Human Rights ... defines discrimination on the basis of perceived or actual immigration status and national origin under the New York City Human Rights Law in public accommodation, employment, and housing," the announcement read.
