Immediately after the election in November, the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility and the Center for Migration Studies (CMS) released a report presenting 40 recommendations for immigration policy reform. In the first week of his Administration, President Biden signed a number of Executive Orders, reversing many of the more drastic immigration policies put in place during the Trump Administration. What policies were reversed, and what impact will those reversals have on immigration policy moving forward? What more could be done to reform the US immigration system?
On February 4, 2021, the Zolberg Institute and CMS were joined by leading experts and scholars on US immigration policy in discussion of the 40 recommendations, what the new Administration has done to date, and what actions remain.
