Kamala Harris Talks Immigration with Univision

On Tuesday, incoming-VP Kamala Harris spoke with Univision about the new administration's stance on immigration. You can watch the video in full, it's just over 3 minutes long. Only the first two deal with immigration.

Here are some takeaways: she and Biden have an immigration plan that is their "first order of business." It will, according to Harris: 

  • create a "pathway for people to earn citizenship" that would take 8 years
  • expand protections for DREAMers and DACA recipients
  • offer a "smarter and more humane way" of approaching immigration
  • "put more [immigration] judges"  on the border
  • "make sure the process runs more smoothly"
  • "get rid of the backlog"
  • allow people who have "temporary protection status, in particular DREAMERs and TPS holders to automatically get Green Cards"
