This Executive Order doesn’t fix the crisis. Indefinitely detaining children with their families in camps is inhumane and will not make us safe.

Can the next @POTUS please sign an executive order or Congress pass legislation removing the reference to human beings as “illegal aliens” from government documents?
It sickens me reading and hearing humans officially referred to as aliens.

As far as I can tell, whatever the president signs today will not end the so called “zero-tolerance” policy that is flooding the system with criminal prosecutions of desperate people who are overwhelmingly seeking asylum.
