Advocates hoped for sooner changes on immigration
Since President Joe Biden launched his political campaign for the November 2020 elections, he and his team constantly emphasized the unpostponable need to restructure the immigration system from its roots and pave the way to remove outdated rules and implement immigration policies more aligned with the globalized world we live in.
Naturally, after four years in which the Trump administration tried to restrict immigration at all costs (between 2017 and 2021), Biden’s arrival at the White House opened a door of hope and inspiration for dozens of activist groups, humanitarian nonprofit organizations, immigrant rights advocates, and immigrant communities at large.
However, it was also predictable that Biden’s proposed changes would not happen overnight, even more so considering that former President Trump made more than 400 changes on all kinds of immigration processes, setting a record as the administration that has transformed the local immigration system the most in just four years.
Therefore, between Trump’s restrictive policies, the health crisis brought on by the global Coronavirus pandemic and the surge of illegal border crossings, the Biden administration has not been able to move as quickly as it would like on the immigration sector, creating uncertainty among immigrant rights advocates.

After DACA ruling and other events, advocates call for immigration reform
After the presidential election, several Biden administration officials, and even the president himself, openly stated that reshaping the entire immigration system would take time, especially since support from Congress is also needed to pass comprehensive immigration reform, which has not happened since the mid-1980s, 35 years ago.
Since it has been six months since Biden took office and there has still been no immigration reform, impatience is currently growing among immigrant communities and activist groups, especially after a Texas judge ruled against DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a deportation relief program that protects young immigrants known as Dreamers.
Therefore, following this event and considering that the Biden administration will not be able to reform the immigration system as easily as expected, dozens of immigrant rights advocates are stepping in and acting to pressure Congress to act as soon as possible to provide a path to legalization for immigrants currently residing in the US undocumented, especially when it comes to essential workers and young immigrants.
To give a specific example, a Chicago City Council group unveiled on Wednesday, July 21, less than a week after the DACA ruling, a resolution to urge Congress to open a path to American citizenship for undocumented immigrants who meet certain eligibility requirements.
