President Elect Joe Biden Promised during the campaign to reform the immigration system of the United States in the first 100 days in office.
As this year comes to an end and the inauguration of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States approaches, there are rising expectations that the dysfunctional state of U.S. immigration can finally be addressed and reforms adopted to repair what is not working. Apart from what Biden promised in the campaign, several other encouraging initiatives are also being circulated in Congress. All of them contain proposals worthy of consideration.
President-elect Biden outlined his program for immigration reform during the campaign. It contained the following key promises:
- Immediately reverse the Trump Administration’s policies that separate parents from their children at our border.
- End Trump’s asylum policies.
- End prolonged detention and reinvest in a case management program.
- Reverse Trump’s public charge rule
- End the so-called National Emergency that siphons federal dollars from the Department of Defense to build a wall.
- Protect Dreamers and their families.
- Rescind the so-called “Muslim bans.”
- 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.
- Ensure that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel abide by professional standards and are held accountable for inhumane treatment.
In addition to the above there are other worthwhile immigration reforms being discussed in congress that will be addressed by the next congress. Stay tuned.
