Joe Biden's DHS Blocks Use of Terms 'Illegal Alien,' 'Assimilation'


President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is blocking the use of the terms “illegal alien” and “assimilation,” internal emails reveal.

Internal emails sent by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials request that staff no longer use the terms “illegal alien,” “alien,” and “assimilation” in reference to federal immigration law, according to Axios.

The order comes in the form of a memo signed by USCIS Acting Director Tracy Renaud, where she encourages staff to use “more inclusive language in the agency’s outreach efforts, internal documents and in overall communication with stakeholders, partners and the general public.”

Rather than using “illegal alien” to describe those in the U.S. illegally, Renaud instructs staff to use undescriptive terms like “undocumented noncitizen” and “undocumented individual.” Likewise, instead of using the term “assimilation,” staff is told to use “integration” or “civic integration.”
