How come I sometimes see the useage of the word "persons" in a sentence instead of the word "people"? What is the rule for that? I thought the plural of person was always people
Here is an example: the admission of all persons to the United States.
It can also be written, the admission of people to the United States.
Which one is better and why?
because it means:
all (of the individual) persons . . .
all of the people . . .
