Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the Detroit News in “Metro Detroit Immigration Advocates: Hopes for Biden Tempered by Experience.” Steve said, “President Trump issued a lot of executive orders. And because he issues them as executive orders, a new president can also undo those executive actions. So, for example, the Muslim travel bans could be undone. President Biden could issue a new executive order reaffirming the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program for young ‘Dreamers,’ and perhaps make them feel more secure by allowing them to renew their status for two years, rather than the one year for which the Trump Administration currently has issued. President Biden could also undo the travel bans for temporary workers that are in place.” The article is available at (subscription required)

Steve was quoted by Correio Braziliense in “Twenty Days After Election, Trump Gives the Green Light for the Transition in the U.S.” Steve noted that Alejandro Mayorkas, who President-elect Biden intends to nominate as head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), “was director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under the Obama administration, then undersecretary of DHS. He has extensive experience in command of immigration and will be an excellent head of Homeland Security.” Regarding the new Secretary of State nominee, Steve said he is betting that Antony Blinken will strengthen multilateralism. “He will give the State Department a firm hand and will work to improve the agency’s morale,” he said.
