President Joe Biden issues new laws concerning immigration to America


"Joe Biden believes that the immigration agreements signed in 2019 with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have been enforced with coercive tactics by the White House and the Department of Homeland Security."

According to press reports, Joe Biden does not want to waste a minute in largely pulling back from his predecessor's legislative arsenal and devising a new approach to immigration to America.

According to the Washington Post, this is a sweeping reform of immigration policy, with a review of federal laws put in place by Donald Trump. Among the planned measures, an eight-year pathway to obtain citizenship for migrants without legal status and an increase in refugee quotas.

Biden stops building the wall on the border of Mexico and lifts the embargo on Muslim countries

As has already been announced, Joe Biden will no longer invest in building the wall on the Mexican border, but in detection infrastructure. These bills will be sent to Congress on Wednesday, January 20. It also contains a plan to combat the causes of migration of people from Central American countries, including social and economic problems.

Another decision that will be taken by decree is to lift the ban on entry to the United States of America for citizens of several Muslim-majority countries. Another Donald Trump legacy remains, which is the separation of immigrant families. During his campaign, Joe Biden promised to put together a task force to find the children and reunite them with their families. More than 600 minors remain separated from their parents, who cannot be found.

Biden is also expected to take swift enforcement action, which requires no action from Congress, to reverse Trump's other immigration measures. These include ending the ban on arrivals from Muslim-majority countries.

For some immigrants, immigration will be a faster process. The so-called Dreamers, young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children, as well as agricultural workers and people under a temporary protection status, can immediately qualify for green cards if they are working, in school, or fulfilling other requirements.

Immigration to America is a central issue in the Biden era

Biden's allies and even some Republicans have identified immigration as a major issue as the new administration could find common ground with Republican leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell and enough other Republican senators to avoid a deadlock that has plagued both party administrations for decades.

That kind of big win - even if it involves a compromise - could be critical as Biden searches for legislative victories in closely divided Congress, as Republicans are sure to oppose Biden's other priorities that include rolling back some of the Republican tax cuts for a year. 2017 and federal spending increases. As a candidate, Biden went so far as to say that the Trump administration has gone too far with aggressive renditions.

The legislation marks Biden’s attempt to fulfill a major campaign promise for Latino voters and other immigrant communities after four years of Trump's restrictive policies and mass deportations. It provides one of the fastest pathways to obtain citizenship for those who have lived without legal status for any procedure in recent years.
