Before Trump’s rule, US immigration policy was much more loyal. Now, combined with the coronavirus pandemic, this factor has contributed to a significant decline in migration to the United States. This is the lowest level in recent decades. However, newly elected President Biden is determined to change the US immigration system. More immigrants will come under Biden.
Millions of people expect this difficult situation to change with new President John Biden and more immigrants to the United States. The United States has a historic opportunity to regain its image as an immigrant country. Naturally, this is not easy. But more immigrants are expected to arrive under Biden.
The US is a country that attracts immigrants from many countries, but half of them are from Latin America.
According to the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, the Covid-19 pandemic caused the worst economic crisis in Latin America in 120 years – with a 7.7 percent drop in regional gross domestic product. Emigration is the only alternative for many families. The devastating effects of the pandemic have exacerbated the devastation wrought in Central America by Hurricanes Eta and Iota in November, just as they exacerbated the violence, inequality, and hunger that plague the region. Unsurprisingly, many want to flee and seek a better life.
Biden intends to correct everything that was declared by the trapp not in favor of immigrants.
The new presidential administration has already announced that it will be much more welcoming to immigrants – and not only to those who want to enter the United States but also to those who are already here. The administration has a long list of promises to fulfill in the first 100 days, from legalizing the roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants in America and protecting the Dreamers, to granting temporary protected status to hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans living in the United States who fled Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
Biden’s immigration proposals are in stark contrast to the policies imposed by President Trump.
Central American migrants and refugees in Mexico could be the Biden administration’s first major international crisis. The new president has a $ 4 billion investment plan to create jobs in Central America and prevent more people from migrating to the United States in search of work – although the plan will have no effect in the region anytime soon.
Now there are problems with the amount of vaccine against Covid-19, which means that the Biden administration is unlikely to allow a massive influx of refugees and asylum seekers into the country.
President Biden should not divide immigrant families or discourage migrants from Muslim-majority countries, as Trump did. Good leaders are defined by how they treat the most vulnerable in their subordination, not the richest or most powerful. And immigrants are by far the most vulnerable.
Under Trump, annual net immigration fell to 595,000, the lowest since the 1980s, according to the Brookings Institution. In the two years immediately preceding Trump’s presidency, net immigration to the United States was over one million annually.
President-elect Joe Biden is determined to change this dire situation for many people. Thousands of immigrants support the new president precisely because more immigrants may come to the United States under Biden. Of course, this will take a lot of time, especially given the current situation in the world. But his intentions inspire hope in many.
