WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration.
It would provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, according to a person granted anonymity to discuss the legislation.
It’s a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies.
The legislation puts Biden on track to deliver on a major campaign promise after four years of President Donald Trump’s restrictive policies.
But it does not include beefed-up border security, which makes passage in Congress in doubt. It is set to be introduced after Biden takes the oath of office Wednesday.
