What you need to know:
Joe Biden has been named President-elect and the House of Representatives has a Democratic majority. The balance of power in the Senate is undecided with two runoff elections in Georgia. Regardless of the outcome, we are hopeful for the opportunity to enact significant changes in US immigration policy.
The current President has reduced legal immigration affecting refugees, employers, and Americans who want to live with their spouses, parents, or children. The President has enacted more than 900 changes in immigration policy during his administration, and we believe that reversing these policies could be a vital part of Biden’s immigration agenda.
In the first 100 days, a Biden Administration has proposed to:
- Immediately reverse the Trump Administration’s policy that separates parents from their children at our border
- End Trump’s detrimental asylum policies
- Surge humanitarian resources to the border and foster public-private initiatives
- End prolonged detention and reinvest in a case management program
- Reverse Trump’s public charge rule
- Protect Dreamers and their families
- Order an immediate review of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for vulnerable populations who cannot find safety in their countries ripped apart by violence or disaster
- Restore and defend the naturalization process for green card holders.
