Advocation for Long Term Undocumented Immigrants to get Work Permits

Immigration advocates growing by the number are urging President Joe Biden to grant work permits (EAD) to undocumented immigrants who have been living in the United States for a long time.

The White House has not confirmed about doing anything like this, though it has the power.

The White House administration is hesitant to talk about the issue of legal work for almost 11 million immigrants who do not fall into any of the available immigration categories.

Undocumented immigrants who have been here for a long-time struggle with the process of obtaining a work permit legally, as it is a lot of the times very complex and difficult to go through or may not even exist for that specific person. On the other hand, this is different for new arrivals.

The need for workers is ever so prevalent. Stephanie Ferguson, who is the director of global employment policy and special initiatives at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, stated that the data show 9.5 million job openings but only 6.5 million unemployed workers in the United States.

These advocates are trying to pave the way for long term undocumented immigrants but as any kind of policy change there will always be pushback. Republicans demand policies that would decrease migrant arrivals at the U.S. – Mexico border.
