Pelosi Corrects Reporter: ‘Not Constructive’ to Call Migrants ‘Illegal Aliens’

The House minority leader wants to make sure Americans use the correct terminology when referring to those crossing the southern U.S. border.

At her weekly press conference on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) explained to a reporter that it was inappropriate to refer to migrants crossing the southern border as “illegal aliens.”

A reporter asked Pelosi if “illegal aliens” would suppress the wages of American workers under Democrats’ “A Better Deal” program.

The House minority leader responded by asking where the reporter was from, and the journalist identified herself as a correspondent with CNS News.

“Using terminology like ‘illegal aliens’ and ‘illegally entering the country’ is just not viewed as constructive,” she said.

Pelosi predicted that “newcomers” would “reinvigorate” the United States, never answering whether they would hurt American workers.
