Little immigration business is scheduled in Congress during the week beginning June 1, 2020. While the full Senate will be in session during the week, it will be considering nominations and is not expected to take up any significant legislation. The full House will not be in legislative session during the week. While several remote hearings are scheduled in the House, none of them are likely to touch on immigration, refugees, or human trafficking.
- SCOTUS Decision on DACA. a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) on the legality of President Trump's efforts to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is likely in June..
- Suspension of Immigration. The President is likely this month to decide whether his Administration will continue the suspension of most immigration to the United States.
- COVID-19 Legislation. Pitched negotiations are likely to take place during June between the White House, the Republican-controlled Senate, and the Democratic-controlled House over the next phase of COVID-19 relief legislation.
- Regular FY '21 Appropriations Bills. The House and Senate are expected beginning late this month to take the beginning steps in producing the 12 regular fiscal year 2021 appropriations bills.
The subjects of immigration and refugees will be heavily implicated in each of those battles.
As far as the week beginning June 1 is concerned, though, from the perspective of those interested in immigration, refugee, homeland security, or human trafficking policy, the week's schedule includes just one hearing or briefing that is likely to touch on thoe matters, (occurring in the Senate) and no scheduled markups or floor actions in either the House or the Senate.
