There are 3 comments on President Biden Reverses Some of Trump’s Anti-immigration Policies. Now What?

  1. What will happen to asylum seekers who already appeared to defend their cases at the immigration office in Boston some 2 or 3 years ago but who have no news until now?
    In other terms, what is the future of those asylum seekers, working legally in the USA for more than 5 years, who already defended their cases in Boston at the immigration Office but have no news of the outcome of their interview?

  2. Far too few people have the executive-level experience and acumen to fully grasp the near monumental challenges in expanding an already overburdened and underfunded USCIS. Planning, recruiting, training, staffing, and developing policies to become both effective and Efficient are no mean feat. They cannot be summarily ignored. It will take more than just Presidential lip-service and money to solve the a myriad of oncoming challenges and problems within an institution that has suffered at the hands of executives, who continually move the goal posts.
