ICE Removes ‘Alien’ from Term for Illegal Immigrant Children

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel have been directed to no longer refer to illegal immigrant children crossing the border alone as “UACs” (unaccompanied alien children).

Instead these individuals are to be referred to as “unaccompanied children” in official correspondence, according to an internal ICE email obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies and shared with Breitbart News.

“This was briefed earlier today during he (sic) command and staff meeting,” an email sent to ICE personnel reads. “It has been requested that in correspondence regarding unaccompanied children, They (sic) not be referred to as UACs. The term UAC should not be used in official correspondence.”

The email, with the subject line “UACs,” continues, “The appropriate messaging on documents should be using the term : unaccompanied children all lower case. (Unless capitalizing would be grammatically correct).”

ICE did not respond to requests for comment.

While ICE has been discouraged from using UAC as an official term, Customs and Border Protection is still using “unaccompanied alien children” (ages 0-17 years old) as an official term as it tallies the number it is apprehending at unprecedented levels along the southwest border.

From October 1 to June 15, more than 52,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors have been detained crossing the border.

    So, the feds’ solution to this alien invasion is to merely re-label the invaders. How very convenient. How very Liberal.

    Just how long before the border states call up their State Militias to guard the border? What the hell does it take for these governors to take appropriate, meaningful constitutional action to protect their citizens from this federally induced alien invasion.

    Oh, and by the way, they are unaccompanied illegal alien children or unaccompanied illegal aliens no matter what the Progressive propagandists want ICE to call them.
