Prisma Alvarez started this petition to United States Congress

Humans should not be referred to as “Aliens”. The word Alien is demeaning, disrespectful and just plain racist to describe human beings. The word Alien is used to describe a foreign object or something out of this world. Individuals who are immigrating to the United States are humans and deserve to be treated with respect. They are not less than us. Our founding fathers and ancestors immigrated to this country at one point and we do not refer to them as “aliens”. People immigrating now, should be treated with the same respect. They are Immigrants and should have an Immigrant Number to identify them or even a Non-Immigrant number, but not an “Alien number”. This word should never have been used to identify people immigrating. The word “Alien” is offensive to my community and to all the people who strive coming to this country to work, with hope to help build this country and to be with their loved ones. Let’s get Congress to change this offensive word from immigration once and for all.
