First Year of Biden-Harris Administration: A failure to make bold needed changes to immigration policies

WASHINGTON - The first year of the Biden-Harris Administration has been a marked failure on making bold and needed changes to immigration policies; instead the administration has trotted out failed tactics from previous administrations. The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) urgently demands that the administration start its second year afresh by rejecting the racism which underlies our current immigration system and moving toward immigration policies rooted in racial justice.
