    President Biden is making an early bet that after years of stalemate the moment for comprehensive immigration reform has arrived. But lawmakers in both parties caution that Mr. Biden’s effort is likely to face some of the same headwinds the plans of the last three presidents did. On his first day in office, Mr. Biden proposed a broad immigration bill that would create an eight-year path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living in the country without a permanent legal status. It would have an expedited pathway for farmworkers and the young immigrants known as Dreamers, along with changes...

    President Biden will sign a fresh round of executive orders during his first full week in office, including actions loosening restrictions around abortion and immigration. Biden will issue and order to rescind the Mexico City policy, which prohibits U.S. funding for foreign organizations that perform or promote abortions. The administration also dodged last week on whether Biden plans to scrap the Hyde Amendment, which bars taxpayer funding of elective abortions under Medicaid.

    President Joe Biden used his first telephone conversation with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of Mexico on Saturday to bash his predecessor, President Donald Trump. In a readout from the call, the White House said (emphasis added): President Biden spoke with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador yesterday to review bilateral cooperation on a range of bilateral and regional issues, particularly regional migration. The President outlined his plan to reduce migration by addressing its root causes, increasing resettlement capacity and lawful alternative immigration pathways, improving processing at the border to adjudicate requests for asylum, and reversing the previous administration’s draconian...

    Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen says her ambition is for Denmark not to offer asylum to any refugees at all. The PM said that she wanted to reduce asylum applications in Denmark to zero during comments in parliament. “That’s what our target is. Of course, we can’t promise it,” she said. “We can’t promise zero asylum seekers but we can create a vision, like we did before the election, that we want a new asylum system and then do what we can to implement it,” she continued. 2020 saw a total of 1,547 asylum seekers registered in Denmark, the lowest number...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, tasked with enforcing federal immigration law, are being instructed to free all detainees in their custody, as President Joe Biden’s administration halts deportations. An internal January 21 ICE memo, independently reviewed by Breitbart News and first reported by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, orders agents to “stop all removals,” including land and air deportations.

    Texas Attorney General ^ | 1/22/2020 | Attorney General Ken Paxton
    Attorney General Ken Paxton today filed a complaint and motion for temporary restraining order in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, asking the Court to immediately halt the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) freeze on deportations of illegal aliens. On its first day in office, the Biden Administration cast aside congressionally enacted immigration laws and suspended the removal of illegal aliens whose removal is compelled by those very laws. The move violates the U.S. Constitution, federal immigration and administrative law, and a contractual agreement between Texas and DHS. Last night, Attorney General Paxton issued a...

    President Joe Biden reversed an order by former President Donald Trump that excluded illegal aliens in the census numbers used to determine each state’s share of congressional seats and Electoral College votes. On his first day in office, President Biden reversed a Trump order so that illegal aliens will now be required to be included in the census numbers used to decide how many lawmakers represent each state in Congress. In December, Biden foreshadowed this move when he claimed that the U.S. Constitution “clearly requires” illegal aliens to be counted for the purpose of apportioning congressional districts in states. But...

Twitter, Amazon, IBM, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and liberal billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates all converged on the Twitter platform to express their giddiness over Biden’s blitz on climate change and immigration. The PR assault has continued a trend of Big Tech catering to the left.

    As Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America today, while the U.S. Senate takes up the second impeachment attempt against Donald J. Trump by the House of Representatives, we are left with some thorny issues that deserve answers sooner than later.Looking Beyond WordsAs Nathaniel Fischer reminds us, “When judging a statesman, we must look beyond his words and values to assess his true impact. While good values can play an important role, impact also depends on prudence to navigate contemporary challenges, the work ethic to push for results, and the...

    Hours ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration, incoming White House officials released more details of the president-elect’s ambitious legislative proposals on immigration reform, including a pathway to U.S. citizenship for an estimated 11 million people and a series of executive actions, among them an immediate stop to construction of fencing along the southern border. The incoming administration described its package as a common-sense approach to modernizing and restoring humanity to the immigration system following four years of President Trump’s systematic crackdown on both legal and illegal immigration. The U.S. Citizenship Act, which officials said will be sent to Capitol Hill on...

    The action comes under the Deferred Enforced Departure program that offers deportation protections and work permits to immigrants in the country without authorization As one of his final acts in office, President Trump has authorized a program to give work permits and deportation protections to Venezuelan immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission, an action President-elect Joe Biden had promised to take during the 2020 campaign. The designation formally known as Deferred Enforced Departure offers legal protections to any Venezuelan national present in the U.S. as of Jan. 20, 2021, for 18 months. That is likely to benefit at least...

    Among the hopes: more approvals of H-1B visas, a popular vehicle for staffing IT teams Corporate technology recruiters say rolling back restrictions on immigrant work visas, a move backed by President-elect Joe Biden, will expand the pool of information technology job candidates and help ease a longstanding labor shortage. The restrictions, put in place during the Trump administration, included a clampdown on H-1B visas for foreign workers—a program especially coveted by technology firms, chief information officers and other IT employers. The H-1B visa program provides a limited number of three-year work permits to highly skilled immigrants, typically with graduate-level university...

    On June 16, 2015, Donald J. Trump descended the escalator in Trump Tower and announced his campaign for President. That was five and a half years ago, and Trump has dominated the media and political discourse unto this day. You might love Trump, you might hate him, but you can’t ignore him. Now Trump’s term of presidency, beginning in 2017, is at an end, to be replaced by Joseph R. Biden.

    When Barack Obama was in office, he pushed back against amnesty. He sought other dangerous methods to decriminalize illegal immigration, including DACA, but amnesty was a bit too much of a stretch for him even when his party was in control of the House and Senate.Those who think Joe Biden represents a continuation of Obama’s policies are in for a shock immediately after he’s inaugurated. And while many still cling to the idea that a miracle may happen, most Americans are expecting him to start issuing executive orders and pushing Capitol Hill for legislation on January 21st. His plan for...

    “I can tell you that at the first G20 meeting we have, I am going to make a proposal on this issue,” López Obrador said. “Yes, social media should not be used to incite violence and all that, but this cannot be used as a pretext to suspend freedom of expression.” “How can a company act as if it was all powerful, omnipotent, as a sort of Spanish Inquisition on what is expressed?” he asked. Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said Mexico is starting to build an international campaign around the issue. “Given that Mexico, through our president, has spoken...

    NBC News reports that a senior Biden transition team member warned the newest caravan of Honduran migrants not to come to the U.S. at this time. The official reportedly advised that if they come they will not be allowed to enter the U.S. — for now. “The situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight,” the unnamed transition official told NBC News. “There’s help on the way, but now is not the time to make the journey.” Currently, there are multiple programs put in place by the Trump administration to prevent the caravan migrants that are now forcing...

Biden's transition team revealed on Saturday that the incoming administration would sign executive orders regarding climate change, immigration, student loans, and the coronavirus pandemic. Incoming Biden chief of staff Ron Klain sent a memo to his staff on Saturday, outlining a 10-day plan of action. Included in the memo to the new White House staff, the Biden administration declared it would address "four overlapping and compounding crises: the Covid-19 crisis, the resulting economic...
