A Democratic Colorado state representative wants to do away with the term “illegal alien” in state law because it disparages migrants.

Susan Lontine told the New York Times on Thursday she planned to introduce legislation later this month that would eliminate the term “illegal aliens” from the state’s books. She instead wants lawmakers to use the term “undocumented immigrants.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Lontine said she blanches when she hears President Trump use “illegal immigrants” during speeches and was further motivated to nix the phrase when a friend of hers found it while training for a new job for the city of Denver.

Lontine said, “She goes: ‘Why are you using that? That’s an awful term.”
