I think people talk about non locality in this way because they treat the postulate nothing can travel faster than light as a religious tenet.
Quantum entanglement is a quantum state of matter where two particles, typically photons or electrons, form a matched pair based on their physical qualities such as up or down spin for electrons and polarization for photons. When a pair of these particles becomes entangled, quantum mechanics states that measuring one of the pair will instantly force the unmeasured into a corresponding state, regardless of the distance they have been separated by.

this thread is a more specific way of saying that relativity and quantum mechanics cannot both be true in their present forms because they contradict each other, though both seem to be true.
Also, no faster than light communication happens in quantum mechanics. Wave function collapse does not transmit any information of any kind.
