NPR Anchor Likens Ties Term "Illegal Immigrant" To Nazi Germany

NPR anchor Maria Hinojosa recalls a conversation she had with Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel about the term "illegal immigrants" on MSNBC's "Up with Chris Hayes" on Sunday: “If there is an authority, you should be it. And he said, ‘María, don’t ever use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ And I said, ‘Why?’ And he said, ‘Because once you label a people ‘illegal,’ that is exactly what the Nazis did to Jews.’ You do not label a people ‘illegal.’ They have committed an illegal act. They are immigrants who crossed illegally. They are immigrants who crossed without papers. They are immigrants who crossed without permission. They are living in this country without permission. But they are not an illegal people.” (h/t The Raw Story)
