BACOLOD CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Bacolod City Bureau) -Calling someone an “illegal alien” as opposed to “undocumented immigrant” is not politically-correct as we all know it. But that didn’t stop a domestic airport staff from calling ex-Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon exactly that.
Guanzon herself related the incident on her Twitter account:
The Adobo Chronicles reached out to the airport staff concerned to get her side of Guanzon’s story.
The airport immigration officer said she was not calling Guanzon a “foreigner” but rather someone from another planet — an “alien” without proper documentation.
“I would never mistake Guanzon for a foreigner. Her looks, accent and her wardrobe all give it away — that she is a certified domestic,” the officer added.
