Advocates Welcome Biden’s Willingness to Address Immigration Reform, Reverse Trump Policies

The incoming Biden administration has a transformative vision for addressing migration and establishing a fair, humane, and orderly immigration system, Biden’s domestic policy adviser told EFE this week.

During an interview with the Spanish news agency, Susan Rice acknowledged that while the administration will be able to take some steps to change Trump immigration policies right away, others will take time to put in place, including some that migrant advocates consider “destructive” and “cruel.”

Michelle Brané, senior director of migrant rights and justice at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said her group welcomes these initial commitments from President-elect Biden and looks forward to working with his administration to ensure they become reality.
