Biden’s new parole program is a government initiative aimed at providing temporary legal status to certain groups of immigrants, including those married to U.S. citizens. The program allows eligible individuals to live and work in the United States for a specified period while they seek permanent residency or other forms of legal status. This program will also provide a lawful entry for individuals to seek adjustment of status to that of a permanent resident. 

Objectives and Goals of the Program

The primary objective of the parole program is to reunite families, provide protection to vulnerable immigrants, and streamline the immigration process for those with strong ties to the U.S. By offering a clear pathway to legal status, the program aims to reduce the backlog of immigration cases and promote family unity.

To be eligible for Biden’s new parole program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Entered the United States without being admitted or paroled.
  • Has been continuously present in the United States for at least 10 years as of June 17, 2014.
  • Legally married to a U.S. citizen as of June 17, 2024.
  • Does not pose a threat to national security or public safety.
