Biden Administration Timeline: Protect Immigrants’ Human Rights and Reproductive Freedom

EF Staff | Fact Sheets

After the damage caused by the previous administration, the Biden-Harris administration must do more than reverse harmful policies –– it must also restore and advance rights. In that vein, Equity Forward developed a series of transition recommendations on immigrants’ human rights. Many of these recommendations were developed in collaboration with broader coalitions supporting the sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice movements, as well as the broader human rights sphere and groups working to protect science and evidence-based policymaking.

Building on our timeline of policy changes within the Biden-Harris administration’s first 100 days, this fact sheet chronicles a timeline of the administration’s progress in protecting the human rights, reproductive freedom, and bodily autonomy of immigrants. For example, we are tracking the actions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to ensure that the Georgia facility accused of performing forced sterilization on detained people is investigated and that similar patterns of reproductive oppression are broken. Equity Forward is also tracking the Biden-Harris administration officials creating and implementing these policies. This research is featured on HHS Watch and Global Spotlight.

This fact sheet was originally published on June 30, 2021; its timeline is periodically updated.
