The Associated Press on Sunday changed a headline after a backlash from liberals furious at the AP for describing a caravan of illegal immigrants heading towards the United States as an “army of migrants.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants — including nurses and political activists — many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline.

    AP caves, and words matter. What about all the single males and ISIS members already isolated? This is an invasion!!

      I agree it is an invasion. We can not allow every country in poverty to send their people here. We can not continue to support this.

    So now ‘army’ is an offensive term? Let’s call them alien invaders because, technically, that’s what they are going to be after they cross our border.

    Why are you people so unhinged over a damn word, exactly WHAT do you expect the government to actually do abut this? And more importantly will you pay for it with more taxes out of your paycheck?

    It IS an army. An invading army of illegals.
