Resignations have surpassed terminations and layoffs as the leading source of staff turnover in recent years.
Under the guise of “shared responsibility” and the Biden administration’s welcoming attitude toward Venezuelan immigration, Colombia has petitioned the United States to protect its people living in the country illegally from deportation.
U.S. Ambassador Luis Gilberto Murillo Urrutia recently voiced worry to the U.S. Departments of State and Homeland Security about Colombia’s role as a transit nation for migrants, despite the country’s “tremendous graciousness” in housing over 2 million Venezuelan asylum applicants.
Since migration “is a regional issue that should be handled under the principles of shared responsibility, boosting regional collaboration to accomplish migrant regularization,” the letter urges this to be done. The Associated Press is thanked for the dissemination of this data.
A formal proposal to adopt the Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) program has been made to protect citizens from potential deportation.
Certain nationalities may be granted a kind of postponed deportation known as Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) by the president. However, unless you also have a valid work visa, DED is not an acceptable immigration status.
Joe Biden, then-Vice President, used a deferred execution date (DED) to postpone the removal of Hong Kong residents in 2016; Donald Trump, then-candidate for president, would do the same for Venezuelans in 2021; and George W. Bush, then-President, postponed the removal of Liberians in 2007.
During the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, officials from throughout the Western Hemisphere, including the Biden administration, agreed to a regional migration plan.
By signing this proclamation, “we are making a historic transformation in how we deal with migration in the Americas,” as Biden put it.
He said that making this vow would show the world that we are serious about solving an issue that affects nations all across the globe.
Exactly how many Colombians reside in the United States illegally is a mystery. CBP statistics reveal a startling increase in encounters with Colombian migrants along the southern border. Compared to the 3,000 meetings reported in October 2017 and the 26 expected for October 2020, the staggering number of 17,000 meetings in October 2018 is truly staggering.
As stated by Murillo Urrutia, a primary goal of the government is “to allow our people to return to Colombia in a dignified manner if they desire to do so or to alter their immigration status in the United States if they have the legal means to do so.”
Talks between the Colombian government and the National Liberation Army, a left-wing guerrilla organization, have restarted after hitting a stalemate in 2019.
Border security in the United States has been a major concern since early 2021. There may be a rise in the illegal immigrant population as a result of the upcoming expiration of the Title 42 public health order, which permits the deportation of illegal immigrants.
Over the course of the past few months, the Biden administration has worked to extend the scope of Title 42 to include Venezuelan nationals and establish a parole system for individuals who are eligible.
