The Trump administration has taken over 400 executive and regulatory actions on immigration since coming into office. While Biden has promised to reverse some of these by executive order, unraveling many others will take much longer. For example, we can expect building of the border wall to cease, the so-called “Muslim travel ban” to be rescinded, and the DACA program protecting the Dreamers (individuals brought here as children with no immigration status) to be restored. Further, we anticipate that the frantic pace of change in immigration policy will slow. However, it may be some time before certain detrimental regulations can be addressed, including many that affect employment-based immigration, especially as the new Administration deals with the escalating pandemic. We are also still waiting for Biden to announce his cabinet picks for key immigration-related agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security and the DOJ. We will keep you updated as we learn more.
