Six members of the Hispanic Caucus left a meeting with an NBC executive "irate" after the executive used the term "illegals" to describe the undocumented population.

From Politico:

NBC News President Deborah Turness committed a major blunder — as far as the Hispanic lawmakers were concerned — when she described undocumented immigrants as “illegals," a term that many in the Latino community find highly offensive.

Turness was describing NBC's integration with their Spanish-language network Telemundo, which included coverage of Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. and his interaction with a young girl who was afraid her parents would be deported because they’re “illegals.”

“I’m going to stop you right there. We use the term undocumented immigrants,” Rep. Juan Vargas (D-Calif.) interrupted.

Turness apologized.

Funny, but I don't recall similar outrage from the Hispanic Caucus when Hillary Clinton uses the racial slur. But that's the point. At the heart of the matter Democratic lawmakers are really only upset with NBC because they gave a platform to a Republican Presidential candidate, not because of what he has said about immigrants, which at the root is not so dissimilar to what Hillary Clinton repeatedly says.
