The Immigrant Families Separated by Trump Are Stuck in Legal Limbo Under Biden

“Amid the efforts to reunify the migrant families that were separated by President Donald Trump’s notorious zero tolerance policy, one question has consistently hovered in the background like an uninvited guest: Why can’t we just give these families permanent status? After a long period of kicking the can down the road, we have arrived at the moment when the search for an answer has become urgent, if not acute.

The small group of separated parents who were recently allowed back into the country in coordination with President Joe Biden’s reunification task force were given a designation called “parole,” a brittle and discretionary measure described in U.S. law as applicable on a “case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit,” which “shall not be regarded as an admission of the alien.” As newly minted “parolees,” the parents in question were granted a temporary status for a total of three years, during which they will be protected from deportation and can obtain work permits but not much more. What exactly is supposed to happen once that time is up remains very much in the air.”

Talking turkey on immigration reform in the lame-duck session

According to this article on Boston Globe, by The Editorial Board

“It wouldn’t be everything that immigration-rights advocates, many elected Democrats, and indeed this editorial page have called for over the many years in which comprehensive immigration reform has been stalled in Congress.

But with only a few weeks left before Republicans take control of the House of Representatives, the contours of a bipartisan deal that would address at least some of the failures of our immigration system have taken shape.

It would be a shame to let the opportunity pass.

Here’s what an achievable compromise in the lame-duck session of Congress might look like: legislation to legalize the immigration status of people who were brought to this country as minors; an overhaul of guest worker visas for agriculture; protections for Afghan refugees; and a change to the asylum-processing system at the border.”

With GOP House win, Biden faces added curbs on foreign policy

Published

According to this article on Washington Post, by Missy Ryan and Yasmeen Abutaleb

“President Biden will confront new challenges in advancing his global agenda following the midterm elections, as Republican gains are expected to deepen congressional skepticism about U.S. support for Ukraine, renew scrutiny of America’s posture abroad and initiate polarizing probes into his handling of Afghanistan and immigration.

While Democrats have retained their majority in the Senate, Republican control of the House has the potential to constrain Biden’s ability to achieve key foreign policy goals, including his intent to continue providing high levels of aid for Ukraine in the war against Russia. An incident this week in Poland foreshadowed the debates to come, with a segment of the GOP demanding an end to U.S. support after two people died in an explosion that Western officials think was caused, unintentionally, by the Ukrainians. Analysts said those pressures will be tempered, both by Republican divisions on that topic and the president’s broad authority in foreign affairs.”
