ABC/Univision Project Launches ‘Arpaio Watch,’ Surveys Latinos On ‘Illegal’ Terminology

The ABC News/Univision project continues to develop, and we are beginning to get a sense of the tone that is being set. The network, which for now is just a sub-site on ABCNews.com, is launching a new series called “Arpaio Watch,” which is dedicated to monitoring the policies of Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the impact they have on the Latino community.

“The goal of Arpaio Watch is to monitor the effects of Arpaio’s policies on Arizona immigrant communities, and to report from the ground up about how immigration raids, disproportionate police stops and a disconnect between residents and law enforcement can impact a community,” writes the columnist.

In addition, the network has quietly put out a survey aimed at Latino immigrants. The goal is to determine which term is most appropriate for people “without authorization,” as the survey says.

Which term do you prefer be used when talking about immigration status: illegal immigrant, undocumented immigrant, or something else? *
¿Cuál frase prefieres para describir estatus migratorio: inmigrante ilegal, inmigrante indocumentado o algo diferente?
