House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi rebuked House Speaker John Boehner on Friday for calling illegal immigrants ‘aliens’ in a tweet he sent out.
Obama admin should immediately deploy additional personnel to assist in the processing & removal of these aliens: http://t.co/EVWCyYfvc4— Speaker John Boehner (@SpeakerBoehner) June 20, 2014
“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).
