The Trump administration targeted and scapegoated immigrants. Its harsh enforcement policies eviscerated human rights protections and created a deportation machine. This Roundtable will discuss the Biden administration's efforts to build an immigration system that values human rights and the important contributions immigrants make to America, including how a variety of factors facing the Biden administration may impact federal court cases and strategies.

Discussion Topics

  • Status of Political and Nonpolitical Appointees
  • Legal, Policy, and Political Considerations
  • Complexity of Dismantling Trump Administration Policies
  • Enforcement Initiatives and Spending
  • Treatment of Immigrants’ Rights as Human Rights
