Biden to give 'dreamers' work visas without congressional approval

The policy will reportedly ease the process for dreamers to be sponsored for a work visa by their employers. The policy would also ease the pathway for eventually receiving a green card.

President Joe Biden is expected on Tuesday to clear legalities in the way of young illegal immigrants to get work permits in the United States. The latest measure will affect those who are registered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program.

According to the New York Times, Biden has given legal protections for illegal immigrant spouses and is expected to celebrate the new action on Tuesday at the 12-year anniversary of DACA. During the celebration event, Biden is also expected to go over separate actions on DACA that will give work permits to younger illegal immigrants protected from deportation by DACA.


 

The policy will reportedly ease the process for dreamers to be sponsored for a work visa by their employers. The policy would also ease the pathway for eventually receiving a green card.

The expected announcement comes as Biden has been underwater on the topic of immigration and the border in polls repeatedly. A recent poll also shows that most Americans back efforts to have mass deportations across the country, with the majority of Hispanics also being in favor of the policy. Biden has also taken other steps to give work permits to immigrants in the country who recently came illegally, despite the 180-day waiting rule for asylum seekers when they first arrive in the US.

The policies to give illegal immigrants to US spouses protection from deportation as well as the move to increase work permit availability comes after the president announced an executive order that would still allow at least 1.5 million illegal immigrants into the country each year. The president faced heavy backlash from progressives in response to the action that was supposed to limit border crossings to no more than 2,500 a day.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted in response to the EO, saying, "Doing Trump impressions isn’t how we beat Trump." Since the backlash, Biden has taken several steps since the action to soften immigration policy even more for those who are in the US illegally.
