Jens Manuel Krogstad & Ana Gonzalez-Barrera for the Pew Hispanic Center offers the latest (and even-handed) account of the Biden administration's immigration actions and proposals, including many facts and figures.


Among other things, the report notes that "Biden has . . . lifted restrictions established early in the coronavirus pandemic that drastically reduced the number of visas issued to immigrants. The number of people who received a green card declined from about 240,000 in the second quarter of the 2020 fiscal year (January to March) to about 79,000 in the third quarter (April to June). By comparison, in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, nearly 266,000 people received a green card."
