Ali Noorani, President & CEO of the National Immigration Forum joins Cheddar for a short discussion of what immigration reform could look like under a Biden presidency. His top three, which he said have bipartisan support, are:
1. Extending DACA, which President Trump sought to rescind.
2. Extending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Salvadorans, Haitians, and other groups that President Trump has attempted to end TPS for.
3. Increase the refugee resettlement cap from 15,000 to 125,000.
Noorani also thought that a major challenge will be to make the border more flexible while ensuring effective border enforcement.
