The Race to Dismantle Trump's Immigration Policies

Sarah Stillman, The New Yorker, Feb. 1, 2021

"Trump transformed immigration through hundreds of quiet measures. Before they can be reversed, they have to be uncovered. ... In 2017, Lucas Guttentag launched a project to track every Trump-era change to the immigration system. ... [R]eversing the subtler changes will take endurance, particularly amid so many other priorities. Don Moynihan, a professor of public policy at Georgetown, told me, “You basically need someone who is as knowledgeable and enthusiastic about reversing administrative burdens as Stephen Miller was about constructing them.” ... Today, Guttentag hopes that the minutiae won’t be forgotten. Later this month, he will make his Tracker public."
