Parole for Undocumented Non-Citizens married to US Citizens

What is new law in making?

The Department of Homeland Security announced actions to provide Parole in Place to approximately 500,000 undocumented noncitizens married to a U.S. citizen that would avoid the requirement to depart the United States and wait for a green card to be processed abroad. DHS will consider, on a case-by-case basis, requests for certain noncitizen spouses of U.S. citizens who:

have lived in the United States for 10 years or more;

  • do not pose a threat to public safety or national security;
  • are otherwise eligible to apply for adjustment of status; and
  • merit a favorable exercise of discretion.

In addition, the Department of State plans to more efficiently facilitate certain employment-based nonimmigrant visas for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and undocumented noncitizens, who have graduated from an accredited U.S. institution of higher education and would normally require a waiver to return to the United States.
