CNN reports that the Trump administration is attempting to push last-minute policies that would limit immigration to the United States, according to multiple sources. For instance, the Department of Homeland Security is trying to ramp up agreements to send asylum seekers to Central American countries, plans that have largely been under the radar during the coronavirus pandemic, according to three sources familiar with the discussions, as well as rules regarding student visas and work permits.
The push is in line with a years-long effort to usher forward a slew of policy changes that have overhauled the US immigration system.
President Biden is expected to reverse many of the Trump administration immigration policies.
