21 Jan President Biden to legalize Eleven Million Undocumented Immigrants
By Atty. Chris Caday Lozano
President Joe Biden will fulfill a promise to release on day one a bill to overhaul the U.S. immigration system that offers undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, expands use of technology at the southern border instead of relying on a wall, and provides foreign aid to Central America.
Biden’s expansive proposal will be sent to Congress and has already been regarded by several Democrats, immigrant advocates and migration experts as an ambitious marker bill for his immigration agenda. The president is also expected to issue a series of immigration-related executive actions in the coming days.
The central piece of Biden’s plan is to give 11 million undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. The bill, called the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, would give qualifying immigrants temporary legal status and allow them to apply for green cards after five years if they meet certain requirements. Three years later, they would become eligible to apply for citizenship. This will make it to eight years total to wait to become a U.S. citizen.
To prevent the influx of immigrants at the border, the applicants must be inside the United States in January 2021. They should also be of good moral character and pay taxes while in temporary status until the time they apply for U.S. citizenship. President Biden will also renew the DACA program through executive action.
For those who are covered by this proposed law, it is important to prepare documents to show their presence in the United States such as passport, birth certificate of children, marriage certificate, property ownership, school records, medical records, photos in the U.S. , travel documents, bank accounts, insurance coverage, I-94 and other entry documents. Once approved this will make it easier and faster to apply.
