Illegal immigrants married to US Citizens to get work permits, won’t be deported under Biden Plan

The Biden administration is reportedly preparing to unveil one of the largest immigration relief initiatives in recent memory. According to sources familiar with the plans who spoke to KSN Media, the administration is developing a policy aimed at granting legal status to hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants currently residing in the United States.

Under the proposed program, unauthorized immigrants married to U.S. citizens could receive work permits and protection from deportation, provided they have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade.

The sources, who requested anonymity to discuss internal government deliberations, indicated that the initiative, tentatively named “Parole in Place,” would also create a pathway to permanent legal status and potentially U.S. citizenship. This would address current legal barriers preventing immigrants who entered the country illegally from obtaining green cards without leaving the U.S.

Additionally, the Biden administration is said to be working on a plan to streamline the process for “DREAMers” and other undocumented individuals to apply for waivers. These waivers would facilitate easier access to temporary visas, such as H-1B visas designed for high-skilled workers.

While sources suggest these measures could be announced as early as Tuesday, the plans have not yet been finalized by the administration. White House officials are reportedly organizing an event for Tuesday to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which currently shields approximately 530,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation.
