Biden's Parole-in-Place Policy: Key Points

**Attention: Program Application Not Yet Open**

Please note that this program is anticipated to launch by the end of summer, following the publication of a Federal Register notice outlining the application process and additional details. Any applications received before the official start date specified in the notice will not be accepted. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Please continue to monitor this page for updates, or feel free to email our office at inquiry@perryalznauer.com if you believe you meet the criteria for eligibility under President Joe Biden’s new Executive Order.

On June 18, 2024, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the implementation of a new case-by-case process for considering requests from certain noncitizen spouses of U.S. citizens. Eligibility criteria include (1) having lived in the United States for 10 years or more, (2) demonstrating no threat to public safety or national security, (3) being otherwise eligible for permanent residence, and (4) warranting a favorable exercise of discretion. Qualified noncitizens will have the opportunity to apply for lawful permanent residence without needing to depart the United States.

DHS estimates that around 500,000 noncitizen spouses of U.S. citizens may be eligible for this process, with an average residency period in the U.S. of 23 years. Additionally, approximately 50,000 children of these spouses will also qualify under this initiative.

It’s important to note that noncitizens deemed to pose a threat to national security or public safety will not be eligible for this process. In such cases, DHS will take appropriate actions, including detention, removal, or referral to other federal agencies for further investigation or prosecution.
