White House

Biden Administration Amnesties: June 18, 2024

Fact Sheet - Tuesday, June 18, 2024


Toplines: 

  • Only two weeks after announcing its proclamation to give the appearance of securing the border that it willfully opened, the White House is proposing new, unconstitutional amnesty programs
    • First, President Biden intends to give permanent residence and a path to citizenship to hundreds of thousands of illegal alien spouses of U.S. citizens and their noncitizen, minor children.
    • Second, President Biden intends to give employment-based visas, which include a path to citizenship, to DACA recipients and other illegal aliens who graduated from U.S. colleges.
  • Congress must respond and stop these programs, or risk their expansion. Congress controls immigration policy and cannot allow this Administration to continue to abuse parole or other means to invent its own immigration system. It is incumbent on Congress to use its constitutional authority to defund these amnesties and to challenge them in court.
  • The Biden Administration is undermining the rule of law at every turn. First, they opened our borders to millions of illegal aliens, including criminals, gang members, and terrorists. Now, they are unlawfully granting amnesty to illegal aliens who have successfully broken our laws for a period of years. Americans are fed up with the lawlessness.

Amnesty for Illegal Alien Spouses/Children

  • Establishes a new amnesty program (parole-in-place) for certain illegal alien spouses if they—
    • Have been illegally present in the U.S. for over 10 years; and
    • Were married to a U.S. citizen as of June 17, 2024.
  • Allows eligible aliens to receive a 3-year work permit and green card eligibility (with a path to citizenship) without following the current process established by Congress.

Population (according to DHS): 500,000 illegal alien spouses and 50,000 children. 
This is in addition to the more than 1 million already unlawfully granted parole by the Biden Administration. 

Amnesty for Illegal Alien College Graduates

  • Establishes a program to grant employment-based visas to college graduate DACA recipients and other illegal alien graduates if they have an offer of employment in their area of study.

The Federal Register has not yet published the full details, including which criminal offenses (other than illegal entry or visa overstay) will be waived for amnesty applicants.
