Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Brexit became a reality in 2020. Nolan Rappaport for The Hill reminds us that, as it implements Brexit, the United Kingdom joins the United States in addressing the challenge of managing undocumented immigration. Rappaport notes that
"[t]he Public Accounts Committee in the United Kingdom’s (UK) House of Commons recently published an immigration enforcement report that indicates the UK is experiencing similar problems [as the United States] . . . . The UK committee concluded among other things that the government of the UK does not know the size of the UK’s illegal population or have a clear grasp of the harm that it is causing."
We shall see what direction President-elect Biden takes U.S. immigration law and policy.
