Biden to sign immigration executive orders and establish task force to reunite separated families
The latest orders build upon the actions taken in Biden’s first days in office and begin to provide a clearer picture of the administration’s immigration priorities.
“President Trump was so focused on the wall that he did nothing to address the root cause of why people are coming to our southern border. It was a limited, wasteful and naive strategy, and it failed,” one senior administration official said. “President Biden’s approach is to deal with immigration comprehensively, fairly, and humanely.”
