"Sweeping and troubling changes in immigration and asylum policy distinguished the Trump administration. Thus, the initial efforts of the Biden administration primarily focused on reversing the damage. In the first month of his term, President Biden signed twelve executive actions that outlined his immigration agenda. But ongoing issues like the humanitarian crisis in Central America’s Northern Triangle countries, emerging climate change impacts, and the COVID-19 pandemic have continued to drive migrants to the U.S. border and have stymied optimism about improving asylum policy.
This report provides an overview of the changes to asylum policy made by the Biden administration during its first year. It also offers a timeline and a table of policies for reference at the end."
