President Biden’s First Year of Immigration Policy

Historic border crisis, few interior removals, expansive use of work permits

Today, January 20, 2022, marks one year since Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th president. He entered office with an approval rating around 60 percent, which was lower than Barack Obama’s but noticeably higher than Donald Trump’s approval rating upon assuming the Oval Office. Biden has steadily lost the support of the American people since, with most recent polls showing him at 38-42 percent approval, and much of that disapproval is attributable to his administration’s immigration policies.

President Biden probably didn’t mind not being asked a single question about border or immigration issues during his two-hour press conference Wednesday. It’s his weakest issue with the public and was even before his general approval rating tanked. There’s good reason for the public disapproval.
