WATCH: Immigration Lawyer Mario Godoy: Immigration Minute | Godoy Law Office

Immigration Minute 3-1-2021

In our weekly series Immigration Minute, immigration attorney Mario Godoy gives you the week’s immigration news and updates in 1 minute. Mario shares this week’s immigration update on March 1, 2021.


Welcome to the Immigration Minute with Godoy Law Office where we give you the recent immigration updates in a minute.

This week we cover the end of the 100 day pause to deportation, Biden’s overturning of a Trump proclamation and the detainment of 700 children at the border.

On February 23, a federal judge indefinitely banned Biden’s 100-day deportation pause. The ruling requires deportations to resume but leaves wiggle room as to the pace of the actual physical removal.

On February 24, the White House revoked the previous Trump proclamation which prohibited the entry of certain immigrants into the United States due to the Covid 19 pandemic. This proclamation denied entry to immigrants who had already been granted Green Cards but were outside of the us at the time of the proclamation.

On February 24th, it was reported that border patrol officials are holding more than 700 children who entered the US as unaccompanied minors. The influx of children has resulted in kids being held in detention for more than 72 hours, beyond the time limit allowed by law.
This is a pressing issue for the Biden administration.
