Article intéressant sur la politique de la dénomination des migrants, et proposition de l’utilisation du terme « illegalised » - illégalisé - pour souligner la production politique de la condition des migrants sans statuts légal.

L’article de presse ci-dessous se réfère à cet article académique :

No One Is Illegal - Vancouver Coast Salish Territories
Excellent Toronto Star article on "Illegalized"migrant

Are they illegal or illegalized ?

The Associated Press bans the use of “illegal immigrants.” The UN calls them “irregular migrants.” A Toronto professor refers them as “illegalized.”

No One Is Illegal spokesperson Syed Hussan, left, says the grassroots organization is trying to promote the use of “undocumented” and “non-status,” rather than illegal.

What should we call people who are in Canada illegally, without status or proper immigration documents?

Some call them “illegal immigrants,” while others refer to them as “undocumented,” “non-status,” “irregular,” “unauthorized” or “migrants without papers.”

The naming of this particular population is always a contentious and polarizing issue, causing heated and emotional debates between the enforcement-minded, who are in favour of a law-and-order agenda to keep them out, and their libertarian opponents, who believe in the freedom of movement to give them a pathway to status.
In April, the Associated Press announced it would no longer use “illegal immigrants.”

Would the public respond differently in these surveys if the term “illegalized immigrants” were used in place of “illegal immigrants?”

Hungry Canadian aboriginal children were used in government experiments during 1940s, researcher says | Toronto Star

Aboriginal children were deliberately starved in the 1940s and ’50s by government researchers in the name of science.
Milk rations were halved for years at residential schools across the country.
Essential vitamins were kept from people who needed them.
Dental services were withheld because gum health was a measuring tool for scientists and dental care would distort research.
