Joe Biden asks to approve an immigration reform “once and for all” in the US.

President Joe Biden asked Congress to approve “once and for all” an immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants living in the country.

During his State of the Union address, Biden also boasted of having managed to get many central countries and south of the American continent agree to “welcome more refugees and keep their borders secure.”

Immigration reform is something that is supported by everyone from unions to religious leaders to the US Chamber of Commerce. Let's approve it once and for all," he stressed.

Biden opined that such reform should provide a path to citizenship for "dreamers," youth who came to the United States as children, and beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

It would also serve to regularize farmworkers and those employees who have been deemed essential during the pandemic, he added.

Biden assured that this “is not only the right thing to do, but it is also economically smart”and asked to make sure "families don't have to wait decades to be reunited."

“We can keep burning the torch of freedom that brought generations of immigrants to this country; to my ancestors and to many of yours,” Biden asked the legislators.

On his first day in office, more than a year ago, Biden already He asked Congress to approve an immigration reform with a path to citizenship for the around 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country.

Since then, that measure has languished in Congress, where even smaller versions of that initial bill have failed to advance in a Senate and a House where the majority of Democrats is minimal.

That reality has generated frustration among many Hispanic voters and activists, who lament that immigration reform has once again been relegated to the background. despite the promises of the White House, just as it happened during the Barack Obama Administration (2009-2017).

During his speech, Biden also defended that the United States has "established joint patrols with Mexico and Guatemala to capture more human traffickers." and slow the flow of undocumented immigrants to the US southern border.

In addition, he stressed that scanners and other high-tech mechanisms have been installed at the border to "better detect drug trafficking."
