“Even as politicians and the media have increasingly shifted away from the phrase “illegal immigrant” and toward “undocumented immigrant,” Trump over the past several months has taken a hard turn in the other direction. With increasing regularity, he is employing the phrase “illegal alien”(The Washington Post, January 2019)
