The Department of Homeland Security said the incoming administration is pausing deportations for some people for 100 days.
The DHS said in a statement on Jan. 20 that for 100 days starting Jan. 22, it will “pause removals for certain noncitizens ordered deported to ensure we have a fair and effective immigration enforcement system focused on protecting national security, border security, and public safety.”
“The pause will allow DHS to ensure that its resources are dedicated to responding to the most pressing challenges that the United States faces, including immediate operational challenges at the southwest border in the midst of the most serious global public health crisis in a century,” the statement reads. “Throughout this interim period DHS will continue to enforce our immigration laws.”
The now-President Biden had promised the deportation moratorium on the campaign trail.
