President Joe Biden has undone some of his predecessor’s malevolent immigration legacy with executive authority. But accomplishing the rest of his immigration agenda will require legislative action, which is why he has worked with congressional Democrats to craft the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021. There is much to like in the bill, which was unveiled in February and is being pushed in Congress. However, thanks to labor pressures, there are some unfortunate elements pertaining to guest worker programs for both low and high-skilled immigration that will sow the seeds for mischief by future Trumps.
Biden needs to rethink them pronto.
