The Department of Justice (DOJ) has informed U.S. attorney offices in an agency-wide e-mail that they should to refer to foreigners illegally residing in the United States as illegal aliens, instead of “undocumented” persons. The term “undocumented” has been popularized by illegal alien advocates as a means to suggest that people who violate our immigration laws are not really lawbreakers, but individuals who lack documents. Of course the reason they lack proper documents is because they are here illegally.
The DOJ e-mail noted that “The word ‘undocumented’ is not based in U.S. code and should not be used to describe someone’s illegal presence in the country.”

A group of Democratic House members are supporting legislation to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the federal agency that does interior enforcement of U.S. immigration law. A strong supporter of this plan is Sean McElwee, co-founder of Data for Progress and originator of the slogan, “Abolish ICE.”
Said McElwee, ” Now that we have clear consensus that ICE must be abolished, it’s time for a discussion about a humane enforcement system. That means the ending the criminalization of migration, creating a fast path to citizenship, limiting the scope of CBP’s enforcement, and ending our inhumane immigration detention system. The existence if the legislation proves that within the Democratic Party there is some interest in moving away from pandering to white supremacy.
