The Orwellian transformation of our society continues.
“Alien” is now only to be used for those flying saucers the Navy keeps seeing, according to the Biden administration. Illegal is now “undocumented.” We wouldn’t want to insult people doing something illegal by calling it that.
Let’s move this a bit further. It’s time to start calling people who rob convenience stores “unreceipted shoppers.”
And who knew that assimilate was a dirty word? It’s been changed to integrate.
And perhaps those who have not yet been assimilated are now to be called “disintegrated.”
According to the Washington Post:
The Biden administration has ordered U.S. immigration enforcement agencies to stop using terms such as “alien,” “illegal alien” and “assimilation” when referring to immigrants in the United States, a rebuke of terms widely used under the Trump administration.
The change is detailed in memos sent Monday to department heads at Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, the nation’s chief enforcers of federal immigration laws, according to copies obtained by The Washington Post. It is part of an ongoing effort to reverse President Donald Trump’s hard-line policies and advance Biden’s efforts to build a more “humane” immigration system.
Among the changes: “Alien” will become “noncitizen or migrant,” “illegal” will become “undocumented,” and “assimilation” will change to “integration.”
