The White House is praising Biden’s new immigration policy toward undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens, With less than five months to go the general electionsPresident Biden announced sweeping federal action This will provide undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens who have lived in the United States for at least 10 years a new path to permanent residency and, eventually, legal citizenship. The plan could provide citizenship not only to some 500,000 eligible spouses, but also to some 50,000 children, protecting them from deportation in the meantime.

“It’s important that communities really see that the president is fighting for issues that are important to them and their families,” Biden campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez said in an exclusive interview with CBS News.

“Families who qualify for this new executive order will be able to sleep better tonight knowing they have the opportunity to ensure they are not separated by cruel policies. They might be able to hug each other a little. a lot tighter knowing that they can stay together as a whole family here in this country as a result of this executive order,” she said.

Chávez Rodríguez also contrasted the actions of the Biden administration and those of former President Donald Trump. She told CBS News political director Fin Gomez: “It’s also a stark reminder of the extremely cruel and chaotic family separation policies we’ve seen in Donald Trump’s administration,” adding: “I think that we can all remember those images of literally crying babies being torn apart. from their mothers’ arms.”

Meanwhile, Trump rejected Biden’s new immigration policy on Tuesday in Racine, Wisconsin. “One of Crooked Joe’s most destructive actions yet is this lawless executive action,” Trump said, vowing to reverse it if he is elected in November.

“He’s going to formally grant a mass amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who have entered our country,” Trump falsely claimed, adding, “I think a lot of them are going to vote for me.”

Biden attracted a majority of Latino voters in 2020, but Trump continues to make gains within the community. According to a CBS News poll compared to earlier this year, Biden’s support among Latino voters has fallen 12 points since 2020.

While Trump is unlikely to win a majority of the Latino vote in November, some of his allies tell CBS News they believe a Hispanic vice presidential running mate could help pull Latino support from the margins and battleground states if Nevada and Arizona could help win. both have large Latino electorates. CBS News reported this earlier Senator Marco Rubio of Florida has risen to the top of the Trump’s running mate shortlistalong with several other Republicans.

Still, Chávez Rodríguez says she isn’t concerned about the potential impact of a Latino vice presidential candidate like Rubio on the Republican ticket. “I don’t think there’s one individual, or frankly – no speech or anything that anyone can do, including Donald Trump or his campaign, that – will hide the fact that he despises my community.”
