President Biden is instructing officials to use “more inclusive” language when discussing immigration. Acting Director of USCIS, Tracy Renaud, signed a memo sent in an email Tuesday informing officials to use “more inclusive language in the agency’s outreach efforts, internal documents and in overall communication with stakeholders, partners and the general public.” Specifically, the word “alien” is replaced with “noncitizen,” “illegal alien” is replaced with “undocumented non citizen” or “undocumented individual,” and “assimilation” is replaced with “integration or civic integration.” A USCIS spokesperson said the memo was signed so that the agency “aligns our language practices with the administration’s guidance on the federal government’s use of immigration terminology.”
