Biden has promised swift change, but it won't be simple.
"They're realizing that they have two months to figure out a really complicated mess of things," a source familiar with the transition told CNN, referring to the Biden team. "People are really overwhelmed trying to figure out the sheer issues, the sheer number of pieces you have to coordinate. This is the genius of Stephen Miller."
Miller, President Donald Trump's lead immigration adviser and the architect of his hard-line immigration agenda, has shepherded some of the most restrictionist immigration policies -- and continues to do so
-- with the intent of curtailing immigration to the US. The hundreds of executive actions
rolled out by the Trump administration have drawn the ire of immigrant advocates and lawmakers, who argue they've betrayed the country's welcoming stance.
