  1. What is Parole in Place? Parole in Place (PIP) allows a foreign national who came into the United States without authorization (without being admitted, inspected or granted parole) the ability to stay in the United States for a certain period of time. If granted, PIP provides the foreign national with parole, which is treated as an ‘admission’ for purposes of applying for adjustment of status within the United States. PIP is granted on a case-by-case discretionary basis. 
  1. Is Parole in Place new? Was it created by the Biden Administration? PIP is not new, and it was not created by the Biden Administration. PIP has been around for many years and used by many Presidents when Congress has failed to act on matters related to Immigration. The USCIS may grant parole in place on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit under Section 212(d)(5)(A) of the Immigration & Nationality Act (INA).

“Immigrants signed their names to our Declaration and helped win our independence. Immigrants helped lay the railroads and build our cities, calloused hand by calloused hand. Immigrants took up arms to preserve our union, to defeat fascism, and to win a Cold War. Immigrants and their descendants helped pioneer new industries and fuel our Information Age, from Google to the iPhone. So the story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of “them,” it’s a story of “us.” It’s who we are. And now, all of you get to write the next chapter.” – President Barack Obama

On June 18th, President Biden announced that the Department of Homeland Security will take action to ensure that U.S. citizens with noncitizen spouses and children can keep their families together, using Parole in Place. This process, the details of which will not be announced until later this summer, will allow certain noncitizen spouses of U.S. citizens and their children to apply for lawful permanent residence. Many are already eligible to apply for lawful permanent residence but would have to leave the United States in order to do so. Using Parole in Place, they would not have to return to their country of origin.
