    An official describes the new policy as "humane." What a nice change from the cruel, heartless, anti-immigrant, anti-asylum, anti-Mexican, anti-Muslim policies of the previous President..

    Biden administration to begin processing migrants who were forced to 'Remain in Mexico' under Trump
    NBC News, Feb 12 2021 3:08 AM

    Next week, the Biden administration will begin processing immigrants who have been waiting, often in poor conditions, under the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" policy and allowing them to live in the US while they await rulings on their asylum cases. The policy, also known as Migrant Protection Protocol or MPP, began in January 2019 and has been criticized as inhumane by international organizations as Central Americans often went without adequate shelter and became the targets of violence in Mexico as they waited months or more than a year before they were allowed to make their case for asylum in a US court date. The officials estimated more than 25,000 migrants are currently waiting at the border under the program, and said they would begin allowing approximately 600 per day to enter.

    Only nine Republicans joined Democrats in passing the American Dream & Promise Act, which would give Dreamers – people who came to the US as undocumented minors and are protected under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program – a pathway to citizenship. In the Senate, the Act would need at least 60 votes to pass and Mitch McConnell will make sure that doesn't happen. In his Inaugural address, Biden emphasized "unity" and "conciliation" and the importance of Democrats and Republicans working together to solve the antion's problems. A nice speech – but McConnell and the Retrumplicans are determined to block almost everything Biden proposes. Retrumplicans are the party of "No."

    House passes bill that would give Dreamers a path to citizenship
    Measure, which aims to undo Trump’s hardline immigration policies, is likely to hit a wall in the evenly divided Senate.

    Donald Trump stacked the Supreme Court with right-wing judges who think like he does – and this is the result:

    Supreme Court rules against immigrants with temporary status
    The court ruled that thousands of people living in the US for humanitarian reasons are ineligible to apply to become permanent residents.
