Lemma 101.18.6. Let $\mathcal{X}$ be an algebraic stack. For any locally closed subset $T \subset |\mathcal{X}|$ we have

\[ T \not= \emptyset \Rightarrow T \cap \mathcal{X}_{\text{ft-pts}} \not= \emptyset . \]

In particular, for any closed subset $T \subset |\mathcal{X}|$ we see that $T \cap \mathcal{X}_{\text{ft-pts}}$ is dense in $T$.

**Proof.**
Let $i : \mathcal{Z} \to \mathcal{X}$ be the reduced induced substack structure on $T$, see Properties of Stacks, Remark 100.10.5. An immersion is locally of finite type, see Lemma 101.17.4. Hence by Lemma 101.18.4 we see $\mathcal{Z}_{\text{ft-pts}} \subset \mathcal{X}_{\text{ft-pts}} \cap T$. Finally, any nonempty affine scheme $U$ with a smooth morphism towards $\mathcal{Z}$ has at least one closed point, hence $\mathcal{Z}$ has at least one finite type point by Lemma 101.18.3. The lemma follows.
