Last week the Associated Press announced they no longer recommend journalists identify undocumented immigrants as “illegal immigrants” and it appears someone at Fox Nation got the memo.

Fox News generally refers to undocumented immigrants as “illegal immigrants” but not in a story published on Monday. In fact, the story is categorized in the “illegal immigrants” section but the story itself never uses the i-word.

I should note the Fox News story was actually an aggregated story from an ABC affiliate in Texas that originally identified immigrants as “undocumented.” But still, Fox News published the story without updating the headline.
