U.S. Will Allow For 100,000 Latin Americans to Reunite with Families

Joe Biden's administration has agreed to extend additional legal options for Latin American migrants to come to the United States to reconcile with their families. Once admitted, it is estimated that about 100,000 Latin Americans will be given the opportunity to reunite with their family members in the U.S.

This new family reunification parole program is for immigrants from El Salvador, Colombia Honduras and Guatemala, who are U.S. Citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents and who have gotten I-130 approval to bring over immediate family members. U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas illustrated how one would apply for permission to join their families in the U.S, and explained that they would apply at regional processing centers, and that the government plans to open 100 such hubs starting in Guatemala and Colombia.

While more information will be released in mid-June, according to the U.S. government, an invitation to participate will be sent to eligible people as well as receive advance travel authorization for those who are approved.
