President Biden’s Top 5 Actions on Immigration

President Biden has sent Congress an immigration bill, but it is unclear when the bill will be introduced. In response, President Biden has issued numerous executive orders (EOs) and directives in the matter of immigration. Immigration policy can be significantly changed through the following five of Biden's Executive actions. 1. Halting of Border Wall Construction President Biden has issued a proclamation ending the National Emergency declared by a previous Proclamation issued by President Trump. With this proclamation, the construction of the border wall has come to a halt. A plan is under development to redirect funds given for the wall. 2. 100-Day Moratorium on Deportations: In recent weeks, President Biden has given specific instructions to immigration agencies, including Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are stopping the deportation of certain noncitizens while they review current enforcement practices. A court has already ruled against Tump's directives, as has been the case with many of his executive actions. This moratorium has been halted by an injunction issued by a U.S. District Judge in Texas. The injunction was issued on January 26th. 3. Revoking of Travel Ban On his first day in office, Joe Biden revoked an executive order issued by President Trump. This order restricted travel from several countries, including Belarus, Burma, Eritrea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Nigeria, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Venezuela, and Yemen. 4. Suspending New Enrollments in the MPP President Biden has directed the Department of Homeland Security to stop enrolling asylum-seekers in the Migrant Protection Protocols Program (MPP). This program requires asylum-seekers arriving from Latin American countries to remain in Mexico while they seek asylum in the United States. There is still no official word from the White House on what will happen to those already enrolled and still waiting. 5. U.S. Census Halts Exclusion of Noncitizens President Biden has signed an EO that directs those in charge of completing the 2020 Census to include all residents regardless of citizenship or immigration status. This revokes two EOs signed by President Trump that aimed to 1) Collect citizenship information through census questioning and 2) Exclude undocumented immigrants from representation.

Biden administration forced to renew the Trump-era failed Remain in Mexico`s policy

The Biden administration plans a mid-November restart of Trump’s bungled attempt to force immigrants looking for asylum to attend court in Mexico for his or her U.S. immigration hearings. Which, in fact, can take years. The Trump gang’s “Remain in Mexico"policy changed into an inhumane and reactive one,due to the violence migrants confrontedwhile waiting in Mexico for his or her courtroom hearings. Texas and Missouri litigated the Biden management in April over the suspension of Remain in Mexico. In August, a Texas federal court ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the Trump policy, pending the final decision of the suit. The Biden team battled the order however it lost the federal appeals, However, Biden is trying to getaround the order with the aid of using a new Biden administration model of Remain in Mexico. Immigrants will receive their court dates set no later than six months in one of the 10 immigration courts, which is to be installed close to Brownsville and Laredo, Texas. Meanwhile, Execution the revised program might beplaced on hold if the Bidenadministration finally wins the lawsuit filedagainst Texas and Missouri. Mexicoadditionally has the power to amend thecoverage. Mexican officers and the Biden management has been consulting about the details. Remain in Mexico, which the Trump administration created in January 2019 resulted in an increase in migrant campsat the Mexican border. Human rights organization documented masses of kidnappings, rapes and attacks of migrants whohad been waiting inside the sprawling campsfor his or her asylum hearings. The Biden management has persisted in implementing —Covid-19 regulations referred to as Title 42, which push immigrants back into Mexico or deport them to their home locations without giving them a court date. There is a huge outcry from the international community.

Build Back Better bill - Immigration Savior

Hope springs eternal for DACA recipients. Now that Democrats have proposed the Build Back Better bill. If Build Back Better becomes law, President Biden's bill would affect some, 7 million out of the 11 million unauthorized aliens by creating a mass-legalization program for undocumented immigrants in U.S. history called "Dreamers," and farmworkers-- who would be eligible for the brand-new immigration save. If this bill is enacted, to the dismay of anto-immigrant club,  it will be the closest to a comprehensive immigrauion reform in over 30 yearsi Of the almost 800,000 Dreamers residing in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy enacted in 2012 under then-President Barack Obama, all imagine a day when they will become a U.S. citizen, Under Build Back Better, DACA recipients receive work permits , a promise not to be deported and benefits such as a state driver's license. " The most popular program-- is providing parole status in five-year increments for up to as much as 10 years to people who |have actually resided in the country for at least| a minimum of 10 years that do not have a certain criminal background," Moses Apsan, {an immigration attorney and past| president of the Federal Bar Assertion, NJ chapter, with offices in New York, New Jersey and south Florida, discussed the proposed benefits. To qualify, undocumented immigrants must have arrived in the United States before January 2011 and be able to show proof that they've| have continuously| lived here ever since. They will be granted a work permit for five-year, extending protection through September 2031. According to Apsan, disappointingly, the president's strategy, falls short a pathway to citizenship. This fact upsets Dreamers, who have actually spent| the bulk of their life paying taxes and living in the U.S. They state" with or without documents, they will still pay taxes.” If Build Back Better passes, nobody is assured} that they will be protected|. We do not yet know if Democrats will securely acquire the votes in the Senate to be successful. Almost 65 percent of the undocumented immigrants in the country would be protected from deportation. However, this leaves a large number| unprotected. " People who have set roots here for so long, who have contributed to our economy, who are assisting us make it through the pandemic, are still being dismissed, Apsan explained. "Those who came here 8 or 9 years ago and don’t have certain| specific documents to prove they were here before that timeline, may be SOL". Upon. passage into law, an estimated 400,000 unused green cards will be recovered .More than half which are for families and the rest for employers. Republican lawmakers| are mostly| against this bill. Given that| the Senate has twice rejected including |modifications to the immigration| system in a spending bill, Democrats may, again, be sent to the drawing board. Still, Apsan said he'll remain hopeful that all Dreamers and the undocumented community could| |ultimately obtain a victory in this fight for American citizenship..

More States Offering Diver's License to undocumented immigrants

States issue driver's licenses under the authority of the tenth Amendment. Congress authorized Real ID in 2005, making guidelines for state-authorized driver's licenses, including proof of legal status. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have sanctioned laws to permit undocumented immigrants to acquire driver's licenses. These states—California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington—issue a permit if a candidate provides certain documentation, for example, a foreign birth declaration, identification, or consular card and proof of current residency in the state.     Photo by Jill Wellington from Pexels

USCIS Updates Policies to Improve Immigration Services

  PRESS RELEASE WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has issued new policy updates in the USCIS Policy Manual to clarify the criteria and circumstances for expedited processing; improve request for evidence (RFE) and notice of intent to deny (NOID) guidance; and increase the validity period for initial and renewal employment authorization documents (EADs) for certain noncitizens with pending adjustment of status applications. “We are taking action to eliminate policies that fail to promote access to the legal immigration system, and will continue to make improvements that help individuals navigate the path to citizenship, and that modernize our immigration system,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas. “These policy measures are consistent with the Biden-Harris administration's priorities to eliminate unnecessary barriers to our nation’s legal immigration system and reduce burdens on noncitizens who may be eligible for immigration benefits,” said Acting USCIS Director Tracy Renaud. “USCIS is committed to promoting policies and procedures that ensure we operate in a fair, efficient, and humane manner that reflects America’s heritage as a land of opportunity for those who seek it.” Expedited Processing Under the updated expedite criteria policy, benefit requestors and USCIS officers are provided further guidance on when expedited processing may be warranted. Additionally, nonprofit organizations whose request is in furtherance of the cultural and social interests of the United States may request that a benefit be considered for expedited processing, even if premium processing is available for that benefit. Expedited processing is a special-situation service that USCIS considers for benefit requestors who urgently need their request for immigration benefits adjudicated. USCIS reviews such requests on a case-by-case basis. Expedited requests for noncitizens with a final order of removal or noncitizens in removal proceedings are coordinated between USCIS and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Requests for Evidence and Notices of Intent to Deny USCIS is returning to the adjudicative principles of a June 2013 memo that instructed agency officers to issue an RFE or NOID when additional evidence could potentially demonstrate eligibility for an immigration benefit. As part of the updated RFE and NOID policy, USCIS is rescinding a July 2018 memo that permitted agency officers to deny certain immigration benefit requests instead of first issuing an RFE or NOID. This updated policy will ensure that benefit requestors are given an opportunity to correct innocent mistakes and unintentional omissions. In general, a USCIS officer will issue an RFE or NOID when the officer determines additional information or explanation may potentially establish eligibility for an immigration benefit. Employment Authorization Documents Updated policy guidance will increase the current one-year validity period on both initial and renewal EADs to two years for certain adjustment of status applicants. Increasing the validity period on EADs for certain adjustment applicants is expected to reduce the number of employment authorization requests USCIS receives and allow the agency to shift limited resources to other priority areas. This guidance was issued due to ongoing processing delays affecting the completion of adjustment of status applications. Renewing EADs in this category is generally free, and USCIS received nearly 370,000 adjustment-related employment authorization requests in fiscal year 2020.

Finally! Biden administration officially terminates the Trump Remain in Mexico Policy

The Biden organization on Tuesday officially reassessed ex-President Donald Trump's "stay in Mexico" strategy, which constrained huge number of refuge searchers from Central America to remain south of the U.S. line until their cases were heard, causing a serious bottleneck that will take years to clear up. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said he was finishing the approach, officially known as the Migration Protection Protocols, in a reminder to organization heads after a months long survey by his office. The Biden organization briefly stopped the program on Jan. 20, its first day in office."I have discovered that MPP doesn't satisfactorily or economically improve border control so as to legitimize the program's broad operational burgeons and other deficits. Throughout the program, line experiences expanded during specific periods and diminished during others," the update said. Mayorkas said the strategy — which Trump had hailed as a powerful instrument in getting the southern boundary and worldwide associations had censured as harsh — had created "blended outcomes." It is surely obvious that some evacuation procedures led as per MPP were finished more speedily than is normal for non-detained cases, however this accompanied certain huge downsides that are cause for concern,  he opined. "The emphasis on speed was not generally coordinated with adequate endeavors to guarantee that conditions in Mexico empowered travelers to go to their migration procedures," he added, taking note of that a high number of cases were heard in absentia. Under Biden, crossing the U.S. line has become like a lottery. Timing is everything. While one of the Trump organization's objectives for the approach was to lessen the build-up of sylum cases, "throughout the program excesses expanded," Mayorkas said Trump's strategy additionally didn't do a lot to mitigate the strain on U.S. staff watching the border — more than 25% of the 68,000 individuals who were sent back to Mexico were later "tied to re-enter the United States between ports of entry  Mayorkas stated.Mayorkas memo said that they are thinking  about different  approaches to reform the U.S. immigration laws and that a critical piece of the changes includes working with Mexico and Central American nations to stem the quantity of asylum seekers while "extending help   to battle the growing influx of asylum seekers.  I share the conviction that we can just oversee movement in a powerful, dependable, and sturdy way looking past our own borders, Mayorkas commented
