    DHS Secretary: We no longer use the term 'illegal alien'

    DHS Secretary: We no longer use the term 'illegal alien'

    'We do not use the term illegal alien unless we are referring to that defined term in the statute itself,' Mayorkas says

    Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Thursday the Biden administration has stopped using the term "illegal alien," replacing it with "non-citizen."


    Mayorkas said the administration has changed the way the government previously handled migration, citing the elimination of "illegal alien" as an example.

    "We have changed the language that we use to refer to migrants who arrive in the United States and seek relief and who do not yet have lawful presence," Mayorkas said during a "Newsmakers" event organized by the National Press Club.

    "We do not use the term illegal alien unless we are referring to that defined term in the statute itself, whether we are quoting from the statue or referring directly to it. We use the term non-citizen," he also said.

    Mayorkas said his department won't accept "substandard treatment" of migrants who arrive at the southern U.S. border. He pointed to DHS having closed two detention centers that didn't "succeed in adhering to that core value."

    Referring to the thousands of Afghan refugees now arriving in America, Mayorkas said the U.S. has a "proud tradition of being a place of refuge."

    Like we're supposed to believe all these people coming in to the US are real refugees? I DON"T THINK SO.

    This is a well worn tactic that can easily be subverted. Renaming things is a way to show dominance.

    Mosi-oa-Tunya translated into English is The Smoke That Thunders. The English came and renamed it to honor their queen.

    Denali is the highest mountain in the Americas. Americans renamed it to honor the president.

    Names are not permanent. They can be changed back.

    They no longer use the lawful term “illegal alien” because they do not follow the law. This regime broke election laws, too.
