Associated Press bans use of 'illegal immigrant' to describe people after claims it is 'dehumanising'
News agency Associated Press has announced it will no longer use the contentious term 'illegal immigrant' in the copy it produces and its style book.
The news was welcomed by immigrant-rights activists who have long called the phrase 'dehumanizing.'
The alteration could have a significant impact on news reporting - the Associated Press (AP) wire stories are picked up and published in nearly every major newspaper and it is also used by many online publications.
