NEW YORK June 28: Democratic Party contender Joe Biden outlined the main points of what his immigration plan would be for the first 100 days of his administration if he reached the White House.
“On day one I am going to send an immigration reform initiative to Congress that offers a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants who contribute so much to this country,” said Biden.
The virtual Democratic candidate to contend against the reelection of President Donald Trump spoke about his immigration plan in an APIAVote forum, an organization that promotes civic and electoral participation among the Asian-American community.
He assured that his government policy regarding immigration will be significantly different from that carried out in the administration of former President Barack Obama in which he was vice president and that he would have the intention of “repairing the damage that Trump has done.“
“My immigration policy is designed to keep families together,” he stressed.
10 Points Of The Biden Plan
Among the key points that Biden highlighted about his immigration plan are:
- Modernize the immigration system by maintaining family unification and diversity.
- End Trump’s cruel and inhuman policy on the border of ripping children from mothers’ arms.
- Take immediate action to protect the “dreamers”, the immigrants benefited by the DACA program.
