The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) issued immigration-related recommendations on immigration for President-elect Joe Biden. The 20-page report, “A Vision for America as a Welcoming Nation: AILA Recommendations for the Future of Immigration,” notes that “although Congress must pass legislation to ensure lasting structural reforms, the incoming Biden-Harris administration has broad powers it can immediately exercise.”

Among other things, AILA recommends that the incoming Biden-Harris administration reform the legal immigration system to review all employment- and family-based applications fairly and efficiently, overhaul the detention system, and guarantee legal assistance and counsel for those facing deportation.
