Biden immigration policy looks beyond reversing Trump
Rebecca Beitsch, The Hill (February 07, 2021)
A trio of executive orders recently signed by President Biden motioned to his administration’s desire to undo some of the regressive policy characteristic of both his predecessor President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. These executive orders include forming a task force devoted to reunifying families separated at the border, reviewing the Trump administration’s public charge rule, and a reexamination of the asylum and naturalization process. Immigration experts and advocates have praised the Biden administration’s apparent focus on aid over enforcement in their handling of immigration issues, particularly in their emphasis on understanding the root causes of immigration, particularly from the Northern Triangle.
