Existing federal law, for purposes of various provisions related to immigration, defines "alien" to mean a person who is not a citizen or national of the United States. Existing state law uses the word "alien" on its own and within various other terms to refer to persons in provisions relating to, among other things, education, housing, natural resources, employment, probate, social services, drivers' licenses, firearm permits, service in the state militia, and criminal punishment. This bill would revise those state law provisions to refer instead to those persons using other terms that do not contain the word "alien," including a person who is not a citizen or national of the United States. The bill would make other related nonsubstantive changes. The bill would state the intent of the Legislature in enacting this measure to make only nonsubstantive changes, as specified.
