The President Biden on his first day at the office on Wednesday proposed an immigration bill that presents a path to the citizens for undocumented immigrants and makes dreamers, young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, immediately Eligible for green cards.

He also signed a memorandum that directs the Secretary of National Security to take measures aimed at "preserving and fortify" the deferred action program for the arrivals of childhood (DACA). A separate executive order repealed a controversial travel prohibition policy established by Former Trump President who banned nationals from a group of majority Muslim and African countries to enter the United States.

Higher education groups praised the reversal of the prohibition, which initially caused chaos in higher education, since students and academics affiliated with US institutions were braided abroad. In the almost four years since the travel ban was established, one week after the opening of Trump, many higher officials have argued that politics sent a non-cozy message to students and academics around the world.
