We are pleased to have initial results of the U.S. 2020 Presidential Election, and look forward to a peaceful transfer of power, a hallmark of our democracy, on Inauguration Day - January 20, 2021. The U.S. has elected respected politicians and leaders in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. And many Americans celebrate that the proverbial glass ceiling has been broken with a woman, a person of color, and the daughter of immigrants taking on the role of Vice President.
It is anticipated that a Biden-Harris administration’s immigration policies would be more supportive of international students, employees, scholars, and DACA recipients. In fact, in July, Biden tweeted: “Across the world, people come to this country with unrelenting optimism and determination toward the future. They study here, innovate here, they make America who we are.”
It is important to realize that some question the results of the election and some are disappointed by the results, and that any changes will not be immediate, since the current administration will remain in office until January 20, 2021.
