At the University of Southern California (USC), a professor told students to refrain from using the term "illegal immigrants" on their final exam, according to a report by Campus Reform. A teaching assistant working with Prof. Alicia Chavez sent the request to students taking a course on American Studies via email. The email was copied and posted on Facebook.
 
The email said, "...please refrain from using the term, ‘illegal immigrant’ to refer to human beings, -as Professor Chavez has requested (or mandated.)" The missive asked that the terms ‘undocumented immigrant’ or ‘unauthorized entry’ be used instead. 
 
Once news arose about the request, another email message was circulated by Jolie Chea, stating that no one had permission to screenshot the emails. It said that doing this is not only in "bad taste" but also a violation of university policy on confidentiality. "Your friend has ratted you out," it said.
