October 15, 2023 (1 min read)

Human Rights First, October 2023

"Nearly three years after President Biden took office, his administration should double down on effective and humane strategies that are essential to adherence to refugee law and an orderly approach to managing migration. As detailed in Human Rights First’s full set of recommendations, the administration should:

  • strengthen its initiatives to build regular pathways and regional refugee resettlement to the United States;
  • increase humanitarian aid to address gaps in regional refugee protection that push people north;
  • maximize access to U.S. ports of entry;
  • upgrade asylum adjudications so they are prompt, fair and efficient; and
  • improve coordination, resources and swift access to work permits."
