WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel received an email instructing them to no longer refer to illegal immigrant children as "UACs" or unaccompanied alien children, but they are to be referred solely as "unaccompanied children," Breitbart News reported.
"This was briefed earlier today during he (sic) command and staff meeting," an email sent to ICE personnel reads. "It has been requested that in correspondence regarding unaccompanied children, They (sic) not be referred to as UACs. The term UAC should not be used in official correspondence."
The email, with the subject line "UACs," continues, "The appropriate messaging on documents should be using the term : unaccompanied children all lower case. (Unless capitalizing would be grammatically correct)." — Source
