Achieving America’s Immigration Promise: ABA Recommendations to Advance Justice, Fairness and Efficiency

On January 20, 2021, a new Sheriff will be in town.  President Biden will take the reins.  People are asking what the new President will mean for immigration.  The American Bar Association released a report with recommendations (Achieving America’s Immigration Promise: ABA Recommendations to Advance Justice, Fairness and Efficiency).  The report lays out the ABA’s top policy recommendations in the immigration system for the new administration.  It is divided into five sections, all priority areas for ABA policy and advocacy efforts:

I. Reform the administrative adjudication process;

II. Ensure access to counsel:

III. Minimize reliance on immigration detention;

IV. Restore humanitarian protections; and V. Preserve the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children.

The ABA recommends that the incoming administration give immediate attention to our recommendations in five key areas of immigration policy that will  have long-term impacts on the immigration system as a whole:

I. Reform the administrative adjudication process;

II. Ensure access to counsel;

III. Minimize reliance on immigration detention;

IV. Restore humanitarian protections; and

V. Preserve the rights of unaccompanied immigrant children.
