Here are some of the things that immigration lawyers and advocates are talking about today.
Reversal of President Trump’s Immigration Policies: Many people will excitedly vote for former Vice-President Joe Biden in the hopes that he will immediately reverse many of President Trump’s immigration policies, Unfortunately though, it may take years . . . and many immigrant families do not have years to wait.
DACA and Essential Workers: We have all appreciated the efforts of our frontline workers over the last several months as we have tried our best to deal with COVID-19. But what happens if some of these essential workers lose their work authorization, or even worse are deported, because the Trump administration wants to end DACA.
Immigration and the Election: Have we forgotten about immigration? Certainly not, but there is significantly less of a focus on immigration in the leadup to the 2020 election than there was in 2016.
Immigrants, Nobel Prizes and the American Dream: Interesting article about how many Nobel Prize winners are American citizens. The conclusion is that America can only continue to grow and prosper when we provide access to the “American Dream” to the best and brightest from around the world.
Immigrants and COVID-19: Yes, COVID-19 is a deadly virus that has taken lives from both rich and poor communities, from White and minority families, and from Republicans and Democrats. But though the virus does not discriminate, immigrants and minorities have been disproportionately affected.
