House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rebuked House Speaker John Boehner on Friday for calling illegal immigrants ‘aliens’ in a tweet he sent out.

“Mr. Speaker, these comments and labels are inexcusable and reprehensible — no one should be politicizing the ordeal of these children in such a manner,” Pelosi’s office said.

Newsflash, NP: ‘alien’ is the correct legal term—even DHS uses it (Unaccompanied Alien Children).
