The Biden Administration releases plans to work on immigration reform on the morning of February 2nd, 2021 in a continuation of the executive orders signed on January the 20th.
The White House sent out a brief plan signaling that the president will be signing more executive orders on Tuesday. Previously, the administration had wanted to distance itself from Trump policies and hope address newly arrived immigrants as well as those that have lived in the country for generations.
Part of the plan includes 3 key points that would:
- Build a task force responsible for re-unite families separated by President Trump’s Zero Tolerance Policy.
- Announce the start of efforts to coordinate with foreign nations to address migration along with the review of asylum policies such as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program commonly referred to as known as the Remain in Mexico Policy.
- Creating a new Task Force on New Americans. A team dedicated on legal immigration systems in order to streamline the naturalization process.
