New Biden Policy to Shield 500K Illegal Migrants Called ‘the Mother of all Amnesty Programs

The Biden administration is taking new executive action to extend legal protections to spouses of U.S. citizens who are in the country illegally.

The “Parole in Place” program applies to those who have lived in the U.S. for 10 years and will allow them to live and work in the country legally without having to leave. 

Under U.S. law, illegal immigrants must first leave and apply for legal residency from their home countries when they marry a citizen. In some cases, those migrants can be barred from returning to the U.S. for up to 10 years, ABC News reports. 

The White House’s new policy will reportedly shield about 500,000 people from deportation and offer them a work permit.

While Biden moved to tighten up on unlawful border crossings nearly two weeks ago, a White House press release explains he also “believes in expanding lawful pathways and keeping families together.”

Advocates argue that the policy made political sense for Biden ahead of the upcoming election. 

“We anticipate that immigrant and Latino voters will express their gratitude at the ballot box in November,” said Gustavo Torres, the president of CASA in Action.
