Dear New York Times: Now You’re Covering Immigrants’ “Deportment?”

tablewareI know immigration law is complicated, but this should be a pretty easy concept to get straight: Deporting an immigrant is called “deportation.”

So when the New York Times said, in an article called “Los Angeles Rethinks Deportation of Inmates,” that the Secure Communities Program was “an Obama administration initiative that relied on local law enforcement to help with deportment efforts,” it was apparently saying that L.A. cops or prison guards are teaching etiquette to its non-citizen inmates.

I’d like to be a fly on the wall for that one. Shall we start with which side of the plastic tray one’s plastic dinner fork goes on?
