Immigration Nerds Review the Week in Immigration

This week (September 19 – 24) was dominated by a flurry of headlines centered around the creation of new standards, unfulfilled policy promises, and government agency actions out of step with previously declared priorities.

In this immigration news recap, we review the current status of immigration legalization following the senate parliamentarian’s rejection of the House’s bill; the treatment of Haitian migrants crossing the US border seeking refuge in Del Rio Texas; and lastly, President Biden officially lifting travel restrictions for foreign nationals who are fully vaccinated, and the implications for those who are not.

Thank you to our guest, Maunica Sthanki, Policy and Advocacy Strategist, and co-host, Luke Bianco, Erickson Immigration Group Lead Researcher.
