Biden wants to remove the word “alien” from immigration laws

Shafaq News/President Joe Biden wants to remove the word "alien" from US immigration laws as a symbolic gesture to acknowledge the US as "a nation of immigrants."

In a summary of his immigration bill, Biden said he planned to replace the word with "non-citizen."

 Currently, the US code defines anyone who is "not a citizen or national of the United States," as an "alien."

Biden has made immigration a priority as he took office on Wednesday. He issued an executive order revoking the Muslim ban. He also unveiled a plan to give farmworkers permanent residency and a way for Dreamers to have a pathway to citizenship.
