Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by Univision in “Biden Moves Forward With His Plan to Eliminate ‘Zero Tolerance’ and Expand Legal Migration.” He said, “The administrative reforms proposed by the Biden administration are a good first step, but they will take time to implement and will be challenged in court. In addition, Republicans will use immigration against Biden in the 2022 midterm elections. Finally, the next president could undo any administrative reform.” The full article can be found at (Spanish with English translation available)

Steve was quoted by Brasil de Fato in “American Dream, International Nightmare: Immigration to the USA.” He said, “The last time we reformed immigration rules was in 1996, so for 25 years we’ve seen mismanagement of resources and a Congress acting under outdated laws.” Mr. Yale-Loehr also said that “every administration has a lot of power to interpret these laws more rigidly or lightly. [Former President] Trump interpreted it harshly, while [President] Biden promises to adopt more serenity. Part of this complexity reflects the scale of the challenge of creating a series of general regulations that affect millions of people, from those who want to come to the U.S. for a short period, as tourists, to those who want to come as students, who flee some kind of persecution, or who want to naturalize themselves as American citizens.” The full article can be found at (Portuguese with English translation available)
