Biden Halts Use of the Phrase ‘Illegal Alien’ In Official Communications Involving Illegal Immigrants

President Joe Biden has initiated a new directive that would prohibit the use of the terms “alien” or “illegal alien” in official immigration communications.

The preferred term going forward for illegal immigrants will be “non-citizens” or other “inclusive” terms.

Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Tracy Renaud signed a memo encouraging the “more inclusive language in the agency’s outreach efforts, internal documents and in overall communication with stakeholders, partners and the general public.”

Do you support Joe Biden as president?

 

Axios reports, “Other changes include using ‘undocumented noncitizen’ or ‘undocumented individual’ rather than ‘illegal alien’ and ‘integration or civic integration’ instead of ‘assimilation.'”

 

Biden Banning the Term ‘Illegal Alien’

Axios is quick to note that Biden’s watered-down terminology is reflective of his “more welcoming immigration stance overall.”

They add that “the Trump administration referred to unauthorized immigrants as ‘illegal aliens’ and described border crossings as an ‘invasion.'”

Accuracy is apparently frowned upon in the media.

The term “alien” is actually the legal definition as defined by the Immigration and Nationality Act enacted in 1952.

It is used throughout, and is defined as a term that “means any person not a citizen or national of the United States.”

In 2010, the Obama administration, in which Joe Biden served as Vice President, openly bragged of having “deported a record number of illegal aliens convicted of criminal offenses.”

The term was used throughout the Obama-Biden years and can be seen on archived White House web pages.

 

President Biden’s “welcoming immigration stance” isn’t limited to friendly words with which to appease open-borders advocates – it also features actual open borders and pathways to amnesty.

CNN reports that Biden and the Democrats are planning to “unveil legislation this week that seeks to provide a pathway to citizenship to the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States.”

 

That is, of course, nothing new, as Biden was promising amnesty for DREAMers as a candidate for President.

During a debate with former President Donald Trump, Biden vowed to provide “a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America” because “we owe them.”

 

And the illegal aliens know it too.

Less than a month ago, a Honduran migrant traveling in a caravan of thousands to the United States said he was making the journey because Biden “is going to help all of us.”

 

Aside from his push for immigration reform and softening language for illegal aliens, President Biden announced that he plans to engage his Department of Justice (DOJ) in a criminal investigation of the family separation program under the Trump administration.

The same family separation tactics that were being used under the Obama administration.
