Family separations. The travel ban. The wall. Gutting the asylum and refugee systems. Pushing to abolish DACA.
Those policies implemented by President Donald Trump helped define his legacy, fulfilling some of his campaign promises while enraging many Americans and further isolating the U.S. from the world. President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to reverse most of those restrictionist policies, but it could take months, or even many years, to do so.
In all, the Trump administration enacted more than 400 policy changes that have shrunk legal and illegal immigration channels into the United States. The process of overturning many of them will be straightforward — Biden can sign executive orders and his agency heads can issue memos or directives overriding Trump policies. Some changes, however, could take much longer to unwind due to long bureaucratic processes or legal challenges in court from states or groups that oppose the policy shifts.
Here’s a look at some of the key immigration policy changes Biden could attempt in his first 100 days in office, and the documents he will have to strike down in the process:
Eliminating the travel ban
Halting wall construction
Reviving refugee system
Restoring the asylum system
Allowing more migrants to request asylum
Ending 'Remain in Mexico' plan
Reopening the southern border
Pulling back ICE agents
Ending private immigration detention centers
Speeding up family reunifications
Reversing 'public charge' rule
Before he is sworn in, there IS one more thing that I would recommend for him to do.
