No sooner did Joe Biden sit down behind his desk in the Oval Office at the White House then he demanded that illegal “aliens” be called “noncitizens.”
“President Biden’s immigration bill would change “alien” to “noncitizen” in U.S. law — the latest move in the fight over language related to immigration and immigrants,” according to Fox News.
“Biden’s administration is unveiling the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, which would include a number of radical measures such as an eight-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants and immediate green cards for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) recipients. [emphasis added]
“While the text of the bill has not yet been released, a fact sheet put out by the Biden transition team before the inauguration said that the bill would remove the word “alien” from immigration laws and replace it with “noncitizen.”… [emphasis added]
“‘Alien’ has long been used in U.S. code and immigration law as a whole, but has seen pushback from liberal activists and cities. New York City announced last year it would no longer refer to “aliens” or ‘illegal immigrants.'”
