CLINIC’s Policy Recommendations for the Biden-Harris Administration: The First 100 Days and Beyond

CLINIC congratulates President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris and welcomes them to their new positions of leadership in the United States. As an organization whose mission is to fight for the rights and dignity of immigrants, CLINIC is particularly elated by the historic moment and future that Vice President-Elect Harris ushers in, as a Black daughter of immigrants.

CLINIC urges the incoming administration to prioritize building a just and humane immigration system. In order to address the Biden administration’s stated priority of systemic racism, the supremacist structures enshrined in U.S. immigration law throughout history must be dismantled.
