NPZ Breaking News Alert: Anticipated Immigration Changes Under the Biden / Harris Administration


With President-elect Joe Biden slated to take office on Jan. 20, 2021, we anticipate a number of immigration reforms may be put into effect within the incoming administration’s first 100 days. These include:

? Changes in H-1B visas -- Removing limits on per-country employment-based visas and other reforms to enable more highly skilled workers to obtain visas

? Changes in family-based immigration -- Recognizing spouses and unmarried children of green card holders as “immediate relatives”

? Removing the Travel Ban -- Removing the Muslim travel ban because there is no evidence that it increases national security

? Lifting refugee caps -- Increasing global refugee admissions to 125,000

? Improving CBP, ICE, and immigration courts -- Ensuring that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel operate at professional standards, holding CBP/ICE personnel responsible for inhumane treatment, removing workplace raids and for-profit detention centers

? Protecting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) -- Restoring the Obama Administration's DACA program

Whether the pending reforms come by way of executive order or legislative action remains to be seen. In the meantime, if you have concerns about your immigration status, turn to NPZ Law Group, the informed choice in U.S. immigration and nationality law.
