Biden Proposes $4 Billion to Fix Root Causes of Migration

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden sent an immigration bill to Congress filled with goals that are a far cry from the Trump Administration’s hardline policies. Along with proposals for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who meet certain qualifications, Biden’s bill plans to address the deeper goal of addressing the root causes of migration, particularly from Central America. The bill would also establish centers throughout Central America for people to pursue refugee resettlement in either the U.S. or other countries. “[$4 billion] is an upgrade, and it will have significant consequences,” Ruiz tells TIME. López Obrador has worked with the U.S. and Canada on similar efforts made to address the root causes of migration in Central America, and in 2018 the U.S. backed Mexico by investing $5.8 billion.
