Comprehensive Immigration Reform Under Biden: What Would It Look Like?

Comprehensive (as opposed to piecemeal) immigration reform would require a drastic overhaul of the statutory basis for immigration law, and it would require the support of both houses of Congress. At the very least, a comprehensive immigration reform bill would need to address (i) long-term legal status for undocumented immigrants; (ii) border security; (iii) the H-1B visa program; and (iv) permanent residency based on a STEM degree.
