Parole in Place Protections for Undocumented Spouses Expected to be Announced on June 18, 2024

The Biden administration plans to unveil a program that will protect undocumented immigrants who are married to U.S. citizens from deportation, paving the way for the largest immigration initiative since the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program—as the administration plans tighter border policies.

The program, known as “Parole in Place,” is expected to protect around 500,000 immigrants from deportation. The precise parameters of who will be included will be unveiled in the coming days. News outlets are reporting that spouses of U.S. citizens who have lived and been married in the U.S. for at least a decade will be eligible to apply for the Parole in Place initiative, which will also provide work permits and an easier path to lawful permanent residence. The President’s power to grant Parole in Place has already been used for other categories of immigrants, such as members of the U.S. military or their family members who lack legal status.

A separate initiative benefitting DACA recipients—or undocumented immigrants who are protected from deportation because they entered the U.S. as kids—is expected to be announced as well. Biden is expected to announce that recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are eligible for visas, rather than the temporary work authorization they currently receive.

Please note that until there is an official announcement from the Presidential Administration, the above actions are merely anticipated and expected, rather than law.
