A senior House Democrat from a border district in Texas plans to use the term “illegal alien” despite the Biden administration’s orders that federal immigration agents drop it in favor of language not seen as offensive by liberals.
“I can understand some people are trying to be a little bit more politically correct, but if you look at what the statutes say, they do use the word ‘alien.’ That’s what the statute does, so until the statute changes, some of us will continue to be using the word ‘alien’ on that,” Rep. Henry Cuellar told reporters during a video briefing Monday afternoon.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I don’t think the statute is going to be changed, but I can understand that thinking of some folks,” said Cuellar, the vice chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security. “That is the word that’s in the statute until we change that.”

Cueller tweeted last week, “There is a humanitarian crisis at the border. It won’t be solved overnight, but we must have a greater sense of urgency in addressing the push and pull factors that are driving migrants to make the dangerous journey from their country to ours.”
“Unlike the previous administration, we can provide humane treatment while still making it clear that our border is closed to irregular migration,” he added.
