President Joe Biden has instituted a new policy banning the use of the terms “foreigner” or “illegal alien” in official immigration communications.
The future preferred term for illegal immigrants is "non-nationals" or other "inclusive" terms.
Tracy Renaud, acting director of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, signed a memo encouraging "greater language in the agency's liaison efforts, internal documents and general communications with stakeholders, partners and the public."
Axios reports: "Other changes include the use of" undocumented non-citizens "or" undocumented persons "in place of" illegal aliens "and" integration or civic integration "in place of" assimilation "."
NEW: DHS officials have been instructed to remove words such as "foreigners" and "illegal aliens" from public communications when referring to non-US citizens in order to reformulate immigration terminology. / /t.co/c3jvBhHZYy

Biden ban on the term "illegal alien"
Axios is quick to note that Biden's watered-down terminology reflects his "overall more welcoming immigration attitude".
They add that "the Trump administration labeled unauthorized immigrants as" illegal aliens "and labeled border crossings as" invasion. "

Accuracy is obviously frowned upon in the media.
The term “foreigner” is actually the legal definition in the sense of the 1952 Immigration and Citizenship Act.
It is used throughout and defined as a term that means "any person who is not a citizen or national of the United States".
In 2010, the Obama administration, of which Joe Biden served as Vice President, openly boasted of having "deported a record number of illegal aliens convicted of crimes".
The term was used during the Obama-Biden years and can be found on archived White House websites.

President Biden's "welcoming immigration stance" is not limited to the kind words that can be used to appease supporters of open borders, but also shows actual open borders and avenues to amnesty.
CNN reports that Biden and the Democrats plan to "unveil laws this week to provide a route to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US."

This is of course nothing new, because Biden promised DREAMers amnesty as a presidential candidate.
During a debate with former President Donald Trump, Biden vowed to provide "a route to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America" because "we owe them something".
"We made a mistake. It took too long to get it right," Biden says when asked why voters should trust him to carry out immigration reform after the Obama administration led and record deportations has not kept this promise. https://t.co/sfK5s5ZOTW # Debates2020 pic.twitter.com/MQEtGE0sQB

And the illegal aliens know it too.
Less than a month ago, a Honduran migrant traveling to the US in a caravan of thousands said he was making the trip because Biden "will help us all".

Aside from his push to reform immigration and tone down the language for illegal aliens, President Biden announced that he plans to involve his Department of Justice (DOJ) in a criminal investigation into the family separation program under the Trump administration.
Same family segregation tactic used under the Obama administration.
