On the cusp of the January 20, 2021 US presidential inauguration, the Trump administration has a few remaining days to take action on immigration priorities that have been key to the president’s platform. By presidential proclamation, the current administration extended a travel ban just a few short hours before the ban’s original expiration on December 31, 2020.

Mayer Brown will be providing full coverage of the Biden Administration’s Immigration Priorities as part of our 10Hundred Series. Later this week, Andrew Olmem, a partner in our Public Policy, Regulatory & Political Law practice, and Elizabeth Espín Stern, who leads our global mobility practice, will broadcast a video commentary of the new president’s likely actions in response to the executive action undertaken during this late period of the outgoing administration. In late January, Mayer Brown will be hosting a 10Hundred Webinar, entitled: “First 100 Days, How Will the Biden Administration Redirect US Immigration.” During this time, we will be keeping our clients apprised via our blog, The Mobile Workforce.
