Episode 18: 2020 Post-Election Immigration Breakdown
Now that the 2020 presidential election is over, we have a new administration coming to the White House in January 2021. President-elect Biden has a lot on his plate on day one. With a raging pandemic, and a divided country, where does immigration policy fall on his list of priorities? What can he do to unwind Trump’s four years of restrictive actions? What can we expect Biden to implement in his first term as president? And can Trump pass any more restrictions in his final weeks as a lame-duck president?
In this episode, Ron Klasko, Anu Nair, and Andrew Zeltner cover the various ways Trump rolled out some of the most restrictive immigration actions the U.S. has ever seen. In his 4 years in office, over 900 immigration policy restrictions were implemented, including large numbers of new regulations, more than 50 executive orders, and over 125 new forms and instructions. Over 100 legal challenges are pending. Significant regulations are still in process, as discussed by Klasko Immigration’s partner, Bill Stock, during his recent interview with Forbes.
The Klasko employment-based immigration lawyers will discuss:
Key executive orders, including visa and travel bans
Key regulations, including proposed and final
Policies and adjudications
RFE rates and processing times
What can Biden undo, and how quickly?
