Biden Immigration Policies
First 100 Days

biden President Biden is reversing Trump’s anti-immigration policies at a rapid pace.

On February 24, 2021, Biden reversed Trump’s order which had barred U.S. Embassies and Consulates from issuing most immigrant visas. Hardest hit were family members of U.S. citizens and green card holders as well as diversity visa lottery winners. However, many employment-based immigrants have also been blocked from getting green cards abroad for many months. We link to President Biden’s Proclamation below.

On February 18, 2021, Biden’s immigration bill, the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 was introduced in the House of Representatives. The legislation would offer an 8-year path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals, allow millions of family-based immigrants to enter the U.S. quickly and increase the number of employment-based visas.

Since most of Trump’s policies where enacted by Executive Orders rather than through legislation, this has enabled President Biden to cancel many of these policies without having to go through Congress.

The White House website states as follows:

“President Biden will reform our long-broken and chaotic immigration system. President Biden’s strategy is centered on the basic premise that our country is safer, stronger, and more prosperous with a fair and orderly immigration system that welcomes immigrants, keeps families together, and allows people across the country—both newly arrived immigrants and people who have lived here for generations—to more fully contribute to our country.”

We hope that this page helps you to keep to up with these changes.

Biden’s Immigration Executive Orders and Fact Sheets

Given that the Democrats hold a small majority in the House of Representatives and that there is a 50-50 split in the Senate (with Vice President Harris as the deciding vote), we don’t expect any far-ranging immigration legislation to be enacted into law. However, the following Executive Orders will significantly change the immigration policies of our country:
