In the recent State of the Union address, President Biden referred to the Venezuelan immigrant who allegedly killed Laken Riley in Georgia as an "illegal" immigrant. This choice of words sparked rebukes from Democratic leaders like former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who suggested that Biden should have used the term "undocumented" instead. Some Democrats criticized Biden for using the term "illegal," viewing it as dehumanizing and akin to right-wing rhetoric.

Additionally, Biden faced ridicule after appearing to mistakenly reference the slain student as "Lincoln Riley," the coach of the University of Southern California Trojans football team. Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene interrupted by shouting "say her name," leading to a moment of confusion during the speech.

These incidents have reignited debates about immigration rhetoric and language use, with some Democrats expressing disappointment in Biden's choice of words. The political divide over immigration is clearly showcased in the reactions to Biden's address.
