How Biden's immigration order shields undocumented spouses and ...
Quick Glance: Biden's Move to Protect Undocumented Immigrant Spouses and Children
  • The Biden administration announced an executive action allowing certain undocumented spouses and children of US citizens to apply for lawful permanent residency without leaving the country. This action aims to provide legal status and protections for around 500,000 American families and roughly 50,000 noncitizen children of immigrants under 21 years old.

  • This move targets key Latino constituencies in battleground states and serves as an olive branch to immigration advocates and progressives. Despite facing legal challenges, the administration believes the action falls within its legal authorities. Eligibility criteria include living in the US for at least 10 years and being legally married to a US citizen.

  • The action is seen as a way to keep families intact and could impact up to 550,000 individuals. The application process will open by the end of the summer, allowing individuals to seek higher-wage jobs from inside the US. The executive order is part of a broader immigration policy by Biden, with potential economic benefits for those affected.

  • Senate Republicans criticized Biden's action for creating more incentives for illegal immigration, while some Democrats praised the move. The announcement also included facilitating the employment-visa process for high-skilled individuals. Overall, the executive action represents a significant step in addressing immigration issues in the US.
