On Wednesday, the US President Joe Biden revoked the decision by his predecessor that restricted many green card applicants to enter the US. The previous government levied the ban last year so as to protect US workforce which saw huge unemployment amid the pandemic outbreak.
Biden, the Democratic President, committed to reverse several of the predecessor's hardline immigration policies.
Immigrant advocates stressed to lift the visa ban that was to expire on March 31. Also, at the same he stood pat on ban on most foreign temporary workforce.
Immigration attorney based out of California said Biden will now have to tackle a growing backlog of applications that have been held up for months as the pandemic shut down most visa processing by the State Department. The process could potentially take years, he said. "It's a backlog that Trump created," Morrison said. "He broke the immigration system."
