Andrea Mitchell clarified that she prefers the term “undocumented immigrants” to “illegal aliens” on MSNBC Thursday afternoon.

The MSNBC host first rolled tape of Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announcing the opening of ICE’s VOICE office from Tuesday.


“With all due respect to the secretary,” Mitchell felt the need to pose to California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, “I would prefer to refer to people as undocumented immigrants, but in any case what would be the impact of the new office?”

“I have no idea,” the former California congressman answered. “They have been doing a lot of strange things.”

“What we want to make sure is what they do is according to the law.”
