President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to make America a welcoming place for immigrants, but his plans to dismantle the Trump administration’s barriers to immigration could leave Biden in a quandary, especially as a new migration surge could be looming.
President-elect Joe Biden will take office under pressure to repudiate and rescind many, if not most, of the more than 400 executive actions President Trump used to tighten the U.S. immigration system. But Biden also will start his term in a bind that could make such changes difficult to accomplish in short order.
Biden has said he would govern differently than President Barack Obama, and he has acknowledged that the deportation of people who never committed any crimes other than crossing the border was a “big mistake.”
