Parole in Place Update: Biden Expands Eligibility For Undocumented Immigrant Spouses

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expanded the parole in place (PIP) policy to include certain undocumented spouses of United States citizens who have been in the country for more than ten years, by June 17, the date of the announcement. 

PIP is a term used to describe the admission of immigrants who are already present in the United States and who have entered the country without inspection. In the past it has been granted by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to certain relatives of military members and veterans, with the goal of minimizing family separation.

The new policy is expands eligibility to certain undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens who have been in the country for more than ten years, on a case-by-case basis. Those who are granted parole in place are considered to have lawful status for immigration purposes.
