Federal Appeals Court: Term 'Alien' is 'Offensive and Demeaning'

"We recognize that using the term “alien” to refer to other human beings is offensive and demeaning.  We do not condone the use of the term and urge Congress to eliminate it from the U.S. Code." - Footnote 1, Flores, et al. v. USCIS, et al., June 4, 2013.
