USA – Joe Biden to modernise immigration
President Joe Biden plans to sign a directive modernising the US immigration system on Tuesday, later than previously expected due to delays in confirming a new secretary for the Department of Homeland Security.
On Tuesday, President Biden will deliver remarks and sign an executive order, advancing his priority to modernise the immigration system. the task force will be lead by the Secretary of Homeland Security.
Biden has vowed to reverse many policies put in place by former President Donald Trump, a process that could take months or years. Biden also plans to revoke the rule that has locked out immigrants from accessing immigrant and work visas including the H1B visa, L1 visa and J1 visa, and other US immigration routes.
The government is currently barred from applying the visa limits on workers sponsored by several major U.S. companies because of a court ruling in October.
