President Biden signed a series of executive orders Tuesday evening that focus mainly on reviewing immigration policies former President Donald Trump put in place. In a fact sheet, the White House outlined how the first order would "create a task force to reunify families" split under the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy. The next would work to "address irregular migration across the southern border" and "create a humane asylum system" by reviewing the Migrant Protection Protocols that force asylum seekers to await court hearings across the border. And the third would set the framework for rebuilding immigration infrastructure, again via a "top-to-bottom review" of the system, the fact sheet said. Advocates argue Biden's policies don't fulfill his promises to overturn Trump's immigration policies as soon as possible.
