Immigration Policy Tracking Project Revamped


One of the most valuable research tools I saw emerge over the last five years is the Immigration Policy Tracking Project (IPTP) that was painstakingly compiled by Lucas Guttentag and his former students at Yale Law and Stanford Law. The project directors share this update:

IPTP, the go-to source for tracking Trump Administration immigration policies -- ranging from executive orders to policy minutiae -- has shifted focus. We now follow every detail of those policies' fates as they are addressed (or not) by the Biden-Harris Administration, courts, and other actors. Glance at the home page and you'll know right away that out of 1,059 known Trump policy actions, 214 are no longer in effect.  And that 220 have been acted on in some manner by the Biden-Harris Administration, plus 92 addressed by the courts.Digging a little deeper, you can now easily find how many, and which, policies have been revoked, enjoined, modified, delayed, or otherwise acted on. Discover at your fingertips which ones remain in place.  

For more information about the IPTP, see this article in the New Yorker and my prior ImmigrationProf blog posting.
