President-elect Joe Biden is planning to announce an extensive immigration reform bill on his first day in office, the Associated Press has reported.

Biden will reportedly send the immigration bill to Congress Wednesday, which could provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status.

The legislation would allow those living in the U.S. without legal status as of Jan. 1, 2021, five years of temporary status, and the opportunity to receive a green card upon meeting requirements like paying taxes and passing a background check, according to the AP. Eligibility to apply for citizenship would follow three years later.

For some immigrants, such as the children protected under the DREAM Act or agricultural workers, acquiring citizenship could reportedly come sooner if they are working, in school or meet other requirements.

The traditional trade-off of enhanced border security, favored by many republicans, is not included in the bill, the AP notes. It is uncertain whether this bill will pass in a closely divided Congress.

Meta to reinstate Trump’s Facebook, Instagram ‘in coming weeks’

Meta’s president of Global Affairs Nick Clegg announced former President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reinstated “in coming weeks” after a more than two-year suspension.

“Our determination is that the risk [to public safety] has sufficiently receded,” Meta Clegg said in a blog post. “As such, we will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks. However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”

Twitter restored Trump’s account in November following its takeover by billionaire Elon Musk, but the former president has not yet resumed tweeting. Therefore it is unclear if he will use any of his former social media platforms, or instead remain on his own social media platform, Truth Social.

Clegg said “We just do not want — if he is to return to our services — for him to do what he did on January 6, which is to use our services to delegitimize the 2024 election, much as he sought to discredit the 2020 election.”

New “guardrails” include new policies around restricting accounts by public figures during civil unrest. Under those policies, Meta can decide to restrict the account of a public figure that violates its community standards for a time ranging from one month to two years.

“If he now posts further violating content, that content will be removed, of course, and he could be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” Clegg said.

Posts will also be able to be limited on distribution without removing them or temporarily restricting access to its advertising tools. “Oblique references to QAnon content, for instance … is the kind of material that — even if it’s done obliquely, and doesn’t violate our community standards — we would seek to restrict the distribution of the content and/or restrict his ability to advertise,” added Clegg.
