Cecilia Muñoz, who has publicly defended the government's immigration policy of separating families at the border, is now part of Joe Biden's projected transition team.

“At the end of the day, when you have an immigration law that’s broken and you have a community of 10 million, 11 million people living and working in the United States illegally, some of these things are going to happen, even if the law is executed with perfection. There will be parents separated from their children. We don’t have to like it, but it is a result of having a broken system of laws. And the answer to that problem is reforming the law," said Muñoz in 2011 when she was working as an advisor for then President Barack Obama, according to Democracy Now.

Muñoz was the first Latina to be named to direct the White House Domestic Policy Council for a period of five years starting in January of 2012, after having served three years as part of the White House staff. Before that, she worked for two decades as an official at the National Council of La Raza.

Her main expertise throughout all of these positions is considered to be immigration policy, and she was a recipient of a fellowship in 2000 for her work on immigration and civil rights.

Muñoz is being touted as a moderate on immigration, according to many media outlets in 2020, but, in light of the above quote, many critics are worried about her true intentions on the issue.
