Biden Pledges To Dismantle Trump's Sweeping Immigration Changes — But Can He Do That?

"Joe Biden has pledged if he becomes president to dismantle the sweeping changes that President Trump has made to the US immigration system but could buy Don't do that. As NPR's John Burnett reports. It's easier said than done. People most closely watching to see if Biden defeats Trump and reverses. His immigration crackdown may be beyond our borders. Some 700 migrants languish in filthy tents pitched in a public park amid mud. Maps and clouds of mosquitoes. The encampment is in Matamoros, just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas. They're seeking asylum in the U. S. But stuck here under a Trump initiative known as remain in Mexico while they wait there closely following US presidential race, says Carlo Garcia, an asylum seeker from Honduras. They buy the place our hope in Joe Biden, who's the Democratic nominee because he would shoot the immigrants very differently than Trump has. We hope he will. And change is all of this Trump has created. This is discrimination and racism. Trump is touting that program's success here He is at a rally in Yuma, Arizona. Last tough. We don't want him here. We want him outside. We got sued all over the place. There. We won. So now they don't come into the United States taken Wait out. While the president claims to have restored a broken immigration system, human rights advocates are appalled that what they call the cruelty of his policies. Oh, Marge. Odd. Watt is director of the L Use Immigrants rights project. What the administration has sought to do is to simply turn off immigration and to do it unilaterally. By presidential edict without the approval of Congress. That project should be reversed. And that's exactly what Joe Biden pledges to do. His position paper on Immigration 51 bullet points over 22 pages seeks to roll back Trump's accomplishments and reenact Obama era policies. If I'm elected president, we're going to immediately and Trump's sold on dignity. Immigrant communities restore our moral state in the world are our historic rolls a safe haven for refugees and asylum seekers. Biden says no more border wall no more separating immigrant families, no more prolonged detentions or deportations of peaceable migrant workers. He would restore the asylum system and create a roadmap to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. It's a long to do list. I don't think it's realistic that Biden in four years could enroll everything that trump dead. Sarah Pierce and another analyst that the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan thinktank recently catalog more than 400 executive actions Trump has taken on immigration. From heavier border and interior enforcement to restricting asylum to slashing refugee visas to creating remain in Mexico because of the intense volume and pace of change is the Trump administration enacted while in office. Even if we have a new administration, Trump will continue. Tio have had an impact on immigration for years to come. But Biden faces a host of obstacles that could slow his immigration counter revolution. First, there's the specter of renewed chaos at the southern border last year groups as large as 1000 Central Americans at a time. We're waiting across the Rio Grande into El Paso to request asylum. The Border Patrol was overwhelmed and ended up detaining families in primitive, unsanitary conditions. And no one wants a repeat of that. Ron Vitello, former deputy commissioner of customs and Border protection, worries that Biden will cancel bilateral agreements with Mexico that have dramatically slowed the migrant flow right now decided that they weren't going to continue to help us. You know, people would start coming through like we saw the caravans two springs ago. There's no reason that it wouldn't come back as fast as it Wass. NPR asked a senior advisor to the Biden campaign. What would happen if the new president gave migrants of Green light? The adviser said. They're cognizant of the pull factor. Then there's the issue of the enforcers. Immigration agents have enjoyed extraordinary support from the White House, the Trump administration has bragged about unshackling them to let them do their jobs more aggressively. What happens if Joe Biden tries to put the shackles back on? That isn't something that the lights which you can't change culture within an organization that best overnight. Angela Kelly is a senior advisor to the American Immigration Lawyers Association. So I agree that it's going to be a long long road. A Biden presidency would also find itself skirmishing with conservative lawyers over its reversals. The way Trump has been tied up in federal court fighting the R. J. Hamann is with the Federation for American Immigration Reform. If Biden is elected, and his administration starts rescinding executive actions that Trump had firm legal authority to Dio groups like us will sue. That is a fact. Finally, there's the Pandemic and NPR Ipsos poll showed a majority of Americans support Trump's decision to shut the borders to all types of immigrants to stop the spread of the Corona virus. Biden has not said if he would reverse that order. So it's anybody's guess when the virus will subside and the nation can welcome immigrants again. John Burnett NPR news

I don't know if it was there all the time not, but it was there for at least a reasonable period of time of the big clubs lifespan and. Josiah's didn't have it. So I decided I'm bored. Play pinball. Plan. You know, pinball was you did that. Oh, so I'm I'm sitting here. I'm playing pinball. Suddenly. Joe stops the ban.
