“With President Biden in control, ICE has moved to police its agents’ words, telling them the terms “alien” and “illegal alien” may no longer be used in any documents,” according to an exclusive report by The Washington Times.
“Instead, agents have been ordered to use “undocumented” — as in “undocumented noncitizen” or “undocumented individual.”
“David Shaw, acting assistant director of domestic operations at Homeland Security Investigations, said in a memo that the changes were ‘an effort to align with current guidance and to ensure consistency in reporting.’ His order applies to all official documents, memos and even emails.
““Migrant” and “refugee” are still allowed, as is “seasonal worker” and “detainee.” But agents were told not to refer to the crime of sneaking illegal immigrants into the country as “alien smuggling.” The new approved term is “human smuggling.”
“And the word “asylee” is gone, in favor of “asylum seeker.””
