lhan Omar wants the term ‘illegal alien’ deleted from U.S. Code

[Ed. – How about instead we delete lhan Omar from the U.S. Congress?]

Rep. Ilhan Omar, (D-Minn), went on a rant against President Trump and his administration for calling illegal immigrants “aliens” and “dehumanizing” them.

“No one is an ‘alien,’” she tweeted. “Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe,” Omar also said.

But former attorney General Jeff Sessions in an internal emailfor DOJ have indicated that “the word ‘undocumented’ is not based in US code and should not be used to describe someone’s illegal presence in the country.” Sessions went on to say that DOJ should use “illegal alien” which is a term based in U.S. code.
