Biden wants the use of the terminology illegal alien halted.

More nonending PC, saving it when the meaning is literal?

While I agree that this is BS,   it does serve a very good purpose:   Biden is bucking the pro-open-border,   no immigrants should be deported,  no wall,   etc.. progressives within his own party. 

E.g.   keeping the 15,000 limit on refuges.  (yea,  Biden will raise this but not close to what the progressives demand),  continuing completion of key portions of the wall,  working with Mexico and central America countries to stop refuges at southern borders),   etc....

So this terminology change  is just pandering to these progressive,  so the Biden admin can push their moderate immigration agenda and associated changes.

"President Biden received praise Wednesday night for the closing line to his first address to a joint session of Congress in which he said,

"Thank you for your patience."

Robert A. George, a writer for Bloomberg Opinion, tweeted Biden's ending line, calling it

"possibly most honest closing line any president has delivered in one of these addresses to Congress!"

Thank you for coming! Jimmy Carter's wife Rosalynn, 93, says goodbye to Joe and Jill without her husband after a 45-minute private meeting at their Georgia home 

Joe and Jill Biden leave Jimmy Carter's Georgia home after a private meeting

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden met with 96-year-old former President Jimmy Carter and his 93-year-old wife, Rosalynn, during their first stop in Georgia Thursday. Rosalynn Carter, using a walker and wearing a white shirt, poked her head out and watched the Bidens leave from the front porch. Her husband, the former president, stayed inside.

If Joe Manchin (I wonder who is paying him?)  would get out of his way, I think Joe Biden could be America's greatest President since FDR.  Say goodbye if they don't sort out the voting rights act.

Biden talks like the most pro-union president since the New Deal

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema(D) is also an obstacle to the far left, "Progressive" agenda.  There are other Dems who probably would not support some aspects of the far left, progressive agenda, but they prefer to remain quiet  Especially those running in 2022 for re-election.

Nobody is "paying Joe Manchin," he is representing the people of WV.  

EDIT:  I read the article and saw no mention of Manchin being opposed to the PRO act.  The problem is that far too many people in America today do not support unions, contrary to what the article stated.  It may be more of a regional thing, such as the walloping union organizers took in the Amazon, Bessemer AL  loss.

Name one politician who doesn't, especially in federal office.

Saying they all do doesn't make it any better as far as Manchin's embrace of energy sector money, etc.

My main observation about Joe Manchin is that it is not the progressives in the party that are a danger to Biden's Presidency, but people like Manchin.  If he went along with the rest of his own party and ditched the filibuster they could then amend the voting rights, get more of their agenda done and bring in D.C. to give themselves a Senate majority and chance of retaining the House in 2022.  But no.  It is shameful.

Real world American politics.  Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema from AZ can go along with the progressives and LOSE their next elections to Republicans.  As can other Dems.  In 2022, one of the GA Dem seats in Senate will likely become a Republican seat.  There are other Dem seats which may be in jeopardy.  Manchin knows that, Biden knows that, Harris knows that, Pelosi knows that - apparently you don't.

James Carville, who knows a lot more about politics that either of us has stated as much.  The Dems. LOST the 2020 elections, except for Trump's seat and the two GA senate races in which Trump interfered.  The Republicans gained seats in the House and increased their control over the state governments.  The Red states will gain seats in US House, while Blue states will lose them for the 2022 election.

The new voting rights act would be good, but even if passed and signed into law, the GOPer states will immediately bring suit and take it to court.  Entirely likely that current Supreme Court would throw it out as reaching into the rights of states.  That has been the standard position for all SC's for many decades.  It is a political issue, not a judicial issue.

You even admit that it is already likely the Dems will lost the house in 2022.  Why?  Because the progressives have given the GOPers the tools they need to win the election.

If DC becomes a "state," it would only have one representative in the House, so not likely that would change the balance for 2022 or later.
