BBC News are using a new expression

This BBC report contains this interesting sentence:

'However, Italy - where most irregular migrants arrive - does not want to take back migrants who reach Germany.'

The new BBC phrase is 'irregular migrants'. The bcc hate the use of 'illegal immigrants', they seem to subscribe to the nonsense claim that human beings can't be illegal, when in reality it's their status that's illegal not them. So 'irregular migrants' can be used to hide the illegality involved.

Second is this 'Italy.. does not want to take back migrants who reach Germany'. Somehow the BBC omit that Italy's position is contrary to the Dublin Regulation:

'The Dublin Regulation aims to "determine rapidly the Member State responsible [for an asylum claim]" and provides for the transfer of an asylum seeker to that Member State. Usually, the responsible Member State will be the state through which the asylum seeker first entered the EU.'

Odd how the BBC love to scream accusations of Israel 'breaking international law' but ignore that aspect here. I suppose that's what you'd expect from an institutionally anti Israel and pro immigration organisation like the BBC.
