The Los Angeles Times has announced new guidelines for covering immigration. The goal is to "provide relevance and context and to avoid labels." That means stories will no longer refer to individuals as "illegal immigrants" or "undocumented immigrants," but instead will describe a person's circumstances.
...In a March column, Steve Lopez described [so]...: "... she and her family had moved here a decade ago from the Philippines without papers."
The Associated Press, whose stylebook is followed by most newspapers and is the basis for much of L.A. Times style, announced April 2 that it would move away from labels and no longer use the term "illegal immigrant."
So, no more "illegal settlements" and no more "illegally occupied territories".
At the worst, "disputed".
