Biden’s New Immigration Plan


The Biden administration announced one of the largest immigration relief programs in recent history. The program would offer work permits and deportation protections to unauthorized immigrants married to U.S. citizens, if they have lived in the U.S. for at least 10 years.

The proposal, known as "Parole in Place," would also open a pathway to permanent legal status and U.S. citizenship for some beneficiaries by removing an obstacle in U.S. law that prevents those who entered the U.S. illegally from obtaining green cards without leaving the country.

Another plan being prepared by the Biden administration would streamline the process for DACA recipients and other undocumented immigrants to request waivers that would make it easier for them to obtain temporary visas.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the federal agency that oversees the legal immigration system, has administered a more limited "Parole in Place" program for military families for over a decade. The policy allows some undocumented immigrants who are immediate relatives of U.S. service members or veterans to obtain green cards, without having to leave the country.
