-Stopped Trump wall
-Reinstated DACA/TPS for Central Americans
-Created a Commission to reunite families
-Stopped deportations and is reforming ICE "guidelines"
-Sent an Imm Bill to Congress on day one.

After a month of the new Congress where Dems control both Chambers, what have Dems in Congress done to fix Immigration?

This will the first time since 2010 that Democrats will have control of both Chambers of Congress and the presidency.

"Our research on migration and inequality recommends investing in more workforce training, so that people can better adapt to the ever changing labor market: http://ow.ly/mpYL50DuEEE

Low-skilled immigration to the U.S., much of it from Mexico, has only played a minor role in rising income and wage inequality. Other trends, most notably globalization in the form of international trade and skill-biased technological change, have played a larger role."

When elephants fly: A minor California Republican exodus after U.S. Capitol riot

Data compiled by the California Secretary of State’s office shows 33,448 voters have left the state GOP since the day of the Capitol riot. That exodus reached its zenith the following day, when 3,243 former Republicans called it quits on the party of Donald Trump.

Since Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, more than 30,000 Californians have quit the GOP, according to state data.

"In 2016, Hillary Clinton was unable to patch together enough Rust Belt and Sun Belt states to secure an Electoral College victory. Four years later, Joe Biden successfully did so. Clinton was trapped between a weakening Rust Belt “blue wall,” and the yet-to-emerge Sun Belt blue states.[6] Biden’s coalition, on the other hand, secured the blue wall in the Midwest while adding two Democratic-trending, fast-urbanizing Sun Belt swing states: Arizona and Georgia."

New Biden rules for ICE point to fewer arrests and deportations, and a more restrained agency

New Biden rules for ICE point to fewer arrests and deportations, and a more restrained agency.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is preparing to issue new guidelines to agents this week that could sharply curb arrests and deportations, as the Biden administration attempts to assert more control over an agency afforded wide latitude under Trump.

President Joe Biden’s administration is attempting to reorient U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency that has seen its priorities swing wildly from one administration to the next.

In 2020, the largest metro areas made the difference for Democrats - Latino Public Policy Foundation

In 2020, the largest metro areas made the difference for Democrats.

"Within-state geographic shifts are significant given that in many swing states, the metro area vote share is so large that if the Democrats win enough urban and suburban voters, Republicans cannot count on enough exurban and rural voters to win statewide elections."

The labor market’s partial recovery has largely benefited white workers, while employment rates remain particularly dampened for Black and Hispanic workers.

"In April, when layoffs peaked at unprecedented levels, the unemployment rates for Black and Hispanic workers were 16.7 percent and 18.9 percent respectfully, while the unemployment rate for white workers was 14.1 percent. While the unemployment rate has declined since then, the racial gap still persists."

Republicans react to 2020 defeats by trying to make it harder to vote.

"States should focus on expanding access to the ballot, not putting up unnecessary restrictions in the name of phantom voter fraud. And if they won’t, then Congress should pass robust democracy reform measures so that every American can realize the ideals of a democratic republic that is actually responsive to the will of the voters."

"President Biden has focused on a message of unity early in his presidency — a vision that will be hard to achieve. There are multiple factors working against him, including the growing antipathy Democrats and Republicans feel toward one another and the increased inability of people from the opposing party to give a new president a chance upon entering office."

"The economic benefit extends beyond the individuals and their families to the entire U.S. economy. Pastor and Scoggins estimated that if the immigrants eligible for naturalization in 2012 became citizens, their cumulative earnings would have poured $21 billion to $45 billion into the economy. That’s billions of extra dollars being spent at local businesses, invested in children’s education, and used as a down payments on homes or seed money to start businesses."

"Many of the new immigration detention facilities opened under the Trump administration had only recently been dedicated to incarcerating prisoners for profit. As sentencing reform reduced the number of prisoners nationwide, private prison companies successfully sought to fill their empty prison beds with immigrants, securing contracts for ICE detention."

Solutions for Undocumented Immigrants.

An earned pathway to citizenship, with restitution, allows the undocumented to fully assimilate and integrate into the United States without being unfair to those who have waited years for their green card applications to be approved.

The undocumented immigrant population in the United States is a glaring sign of a broken immigration system. For too many years, immigration policy has been reformed at the margins, with executive orders filling in where legislation has been desperately needed.

"Most U.S. adults said they were contacted by a candidate’s campaigns or a group supporting a candidate in 2020.... But when it came to Latino and Asian citizens, lower shares of those groups reported a campaign contact than adult U.S. citizens overall."

White eligible voters were somewhat more likely to say they were contacted than Black, Hispanic or English-speaking Asian eligible voters.
