Phrase “illegal immigrant” banished by Associated Press

It was noted in the April 3, 2013 Patriot Post that the Associated Press is banishing the phrase “illegal immigrant” from its famous stylebook, because the AP explains that it wants to stop labeling people. Really?

Excerpt from columnist Michelle Malkin:

“This is the same organization that employs journalists who have repeatedly shown naked bias against tea party members, gun owners and pro-life activists.

I propose that we banish the term ‘journalist’ when referring to members of mainstream news organizations who pose as neutral news-gathers while carrying out a blatantly ideological agenda.”

The Associated Press doesn’t say what term should be used for “illegal immigrants” and is this blog breaking the rule by simply referring to the AP banishment?
