Biden’s allies on Capitol Hill formally introduce his immigration overhaul in the House. The legislation would provide a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented Americans. It comes as Congress is already working on another major legislative undertaking, the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package. The legislation would provide an eight-year path to citizenship for most undocumented immigrants. It would also make it easier for spouses, children, and other relatives to join their families in the U.S. The bill adds resources to process migrants legally at ports of entry and invests $4 billion in distressed economies.
The U.S. government will aim to resettle up to 125,000 refugees in the next 12 months. The cap is a 733% increase from the 15,000-person ceiling set by former President Donald Trump. It is the highest refugee ceiling since the early 1990s.
