Biden changes Trump’s immigration policy
The incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden warned on Tuesday that any changes in the immigration system will not happen overnight, trying to ease people’s concerns that the White House Democrats will quickly dissolve the Trump administration for many years. The expectations of tough and confusing policies.
However, transition officials did discuss plans to change the procedures for asylum seekers on the southern border. The incoming government stated that it wants to identify the most vulnerable immigrants and deal with their demands first, rather than on a first-come, first-served basis.
The transition official said in a phone call with reporters that this change is part of the Biden team’s plan to reconsider the asylum process.
An official at Biden’s transition said: “The goal is to change the way people greet at the border, making this process more effective, fairer, and more humane.” “This means enabling asylum officials to rule on requests so that Asylum seekers will not be tied up in court proceedings for many years.”
Biden’s transitional official said that the Trump administration’s strict immigration restrictions-and all the policy, staffing, and logistical changes that follow-mean that the system will need to be carefully put back in place.
A transition official said: “This is indeed a huge challenge because the current government has broken a lot of things.”
The Trump administration issued an order on the grounds Pandemic, Effectively preventing most immigrants from entering the U.S. immigration system. Before the pandemic, border officials will regulate how many immigrants are allowed to enter the United States at official border crossings to seek asylum. This process is called queue management or “metering.”
A Biden transitional official said that the Obama administration intends to terminate the measurement that began during the Obama administration because it artificially limits transportation capacity, reduces access to the U.S. immigration system, and prevents immigrants from seeking protection in the United States. In October, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security report It was discovered that the US authorities rejected asylum seekers at the official border crossing, and they told the immigrants that, regardless of whether they were actually capable or not, they did not have the space to deal with them.
Biden transition officials say their plan is different from metering because its purpose is to increase border handling and prioritize those who need the most protection. The most vulnerable immigrants will be identified with the help of local NGOs.
Biden’s transitional official said: “Now people sleep outside the port of entry to maintain a place. This is when we encounter a public health crisis. A terrible situation.” Biden’s transitional official said. “The plan is to work with organizations in Mexico to ensure that we are cooperating and effectively handling people who are waiting to enter the port.”
The conversation with reporters was the second day that Biden’s choice to lead the Domestic Policy Committee, Susan Rice, and his national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, told the Spanish News Agency. EFE It will take several months to fully restore asylum procedures at the border.
Rice told the European Economic Community: “The processing power of the border is not like a light, you can only turn it on and off.” “Immigrants and asylum seekers should definitely not believe that people in the area peddling the border will suddenly be on the first day. Ideas open to everyone. This is not the case.”
Rice said that the Biden administration will work with civil society, the private sector, the government and international partners to address the root causes of immigration. The US government says it hopes to implement a four-year, $4 billion plan to tackle corruption, enhance security, and promote prosperity in areas where people are fleeing.
Rice told the European Economic Community: “We know that unless living conditions at home may be more dangerous than migration, most people will not choose to leave their country and risk their own and their family’s lives. “
Another plan is to expand legal channels for immigration to enable people from the Western Hemisphere including Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to apply for refugee settlement, temporary workers and other employment-based programs.
Sullivan said that the Biden administration will not immediately terminate Trump’s Migration Protection Agreement (MPP), which forces immigrants to wait in Mexico after their U.S. immigration cases are completed. The plan is to end this plan in the early days of Biden’s administration.
Sullivan said: “The MPP was a disaster from the beginning and caused a humanitarian crisis in northern Mexico. However, it will take time to implement the new policy.” “The current government has dismantled many necessary capabilities to ensure safe and orderly processing. Immigration. We need time to improve our processing capacity and meet public health requirements.”
