Speech is the only thing Democrats don’t want to be free.
The city of New York has now declared that it is illegal to say “illegal aliens” and other words the left doesn’t like.
The Washington Examiner reports:
NYC bans residents from saying phrases ‘go back to your country’ and ‘illegal alien’
New York City announced it is now illegal for residents of the city to threaten to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on their neighbors, along with a ban on the phrases “go back to your country” and “illegal alien.”
“New York City has made it illegal to threaten to call ICE based on a discriminatory motive or to tell someone ‘go back to your country.’ Hate has no place here,” the city said Thursday on its official Twitter account.
The NYC Commission of Human Rights said they were issuing new law enforcement guidelines based on both forms of “discrimination.” The guidelines also stated that “derogatory use of the term ‘illegal alien,’ and discrimination based on limited English proficiency are unlawful discriminatory treatment.”

The city’s loser mayor is very proud of this:
If you want to come into the ultimate city of immigrants and try to spread hate, you WILL face the consequences. https://t.co/QWy54wADZ1

There are some legal issues here, though:
NYC evidently unaware of NY’s state constitution:

This law is a clear violation of the first amendment. There is 0 chance that it will withstand any judicial scrutiny. https://t.co/hUEqjE9jIC

The left doesn’t care about the Constitution.
They just want to feel morally superior.
