The 2020 Immigration Policy Talking Points

2020 is almost here. With the new year comes more 2020 U.S. Presidential campaigning. Several Democratic nominees are on the ballet, many of whom promise change in immigration policies. Most obviously will differ from incumbent Republican President Donald Trump’s current policies. If elected, a Democrat President would be left with some curious tasks when it comes to U.S. immigration. Could we perhaps gain some insight into what Democrat immigration policies would look like in 2021 and beyond?

In previous posts, we discussed trending topics of discussion such as the Supreme Court hearing on DACA, the border wall construction in Arizona, and constant updates on the public charge rule, but nothing has been more prevalent in the national news than the Central American Migrant crisis at the U.S. border. The influx of recent arrivals at the southern border from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras has taken a front seat, from the presidential debates to all major news media outlets. The wave of migrants has caused Immigration Courts to adjust their case loads, but seems to be primarily a Department of Homeland Security (or “DHS”) issue that still has no clear cut solution.

Our nation's past and current events sculpt what our future immigration policy talking points and progressive debates will become. We already have had a glimpse of some talking points when it comes to immigration at the 2019 presidential debates, with another debate soon approaching on Thursday, December 19th. According to some sources, the three main hot-button issues within immigration, at the forefront of discussion for the 2020 campaigning year, include:

  1. DACA

  2. The Central American migrant crisis

  3. Construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall

The more nuanced topic discussions then boil down, but are not limited to:

  1. The purported criminality of unlawful entries

  2. Whether or not to decrease or “cap” immigrant numbers

  3. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) budgeting

  4. Reform to family-based immigration and moving more toward a merits-based system, and

  5. Further discussion of the DREAM Act

BallotPedia provides a wide range of statistics and data regarding specific republican and democratic nominees and provides information such as their stances on particular talking points, including immigration policies.

    "My wife and I are very thankful for Micheal Ibrahim. Before we hired him, we approached many immigration lawyers over ten years to duplicate documents that were destroyed in a fire. The results were disappointing. Micheal was able to find the lost documents. My wife got her permanent residency. He was always available for us during a stressful time. We would like to thank Michael for his knowledge, professionalism, and expertise. We would definitely recommend Michael for immigration services." -Farzad D.
