Can Biden change US attitudes towards migrants and immigration? | The Bottom Line

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Can Biden change US attitudes towards migrants and immigration? | The Bottom Line” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden faces resistance to key immigration policy reform in the United States, not only from “secure border” Republicans but from politicians in his own Democratic Party.

Lorella Praeli arrived in the US with her family from Peru as a child and lived as an undocumented immigrant for years. Today, she advocates for immigration as a co-president of Community Change.

And Francisco E González, who teaches about the political economies of Latin America at the Johns Hopkins University, argues that there is no indication that the US will ever invest enough money and time in Central America to fix the “root causes” of immigration.
