As fall sets in, we’re nearing the end of 2020 — a year filled with many unprecedented events. Needless to say, there have been many challenges for immigrants as a result.
But what will the future look like? What can we expect for immigration in 2021? There is no way to know for certain and there are far too many variables involved, but some experts have already put together “action plans” detailing the changes that they hope to see. Some of their main hopes include:
- Creating a stronger and more robust U.S. economy, thus creating jobs for both immigrants and native-born workers
- Ending any discriminatory practices so that all who come to the U.S. have the same opportunities
- Putting special emphasis on options and protections for both families and children
- Building up a leadership base that supports immigration and works to make it function smoothly
- Putting extra focus on helping those who need it most, such as those who are fleeing from violence and unrest in their own countries
- Creating borders where people’s rights can thrive and where both sides can work together to help immigrants easily and legally enter the country
- Getting ride of immigration jails and making sure that immigration is not criminalized
Will all of this happen? That’s the question many will be asking moving forward. But what is clear is that plans like this are able to address some of the biggest challenges facing immigrants and imagine a future in which immigrants have fewer obstacles toward residency. Anyone looking to come to American in 2021 and beyond will need to know exactly what options they have. Speak to an experienced immigration lawyer in Orange County about your situation.
