“RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – It’s a hold impacting thousands of people waiting to permanently settle in the United States.

Processing times for renewals and applications from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have recently been taking much longer, leaving many applicants worried about their case.

Lizette Becerra an immigration specialist at PLANevada says the pandemic forced USCIS centers to close for months creating a backlog of candidates waiting to be called in for their bio-metrics such as fingerprinting and photo identification, it’s a procedure USCIS recently started up again with offices now open.

“A lot of the renewals what they started to do is use what they already had on file for them and then proceed that way which was a great way for USCIS to handle the issue,” said Becerra.”

According to this article on NM Political Report, by Susan Dunlap

“The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Joe Biden has the authority to end the Trump-era immigration policy forbidding asylum seekers from entering the U.S.

On its final day of the 2020-2021 term, the Supreme Court agreed with Biden in Biden v. Texas that he has the authority to end former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, also known as the Migration Protection Protocols. The policy has prevented asylum seekers from entering the U.S.

Biden is still fighting, separately, the ability to end Title 42, which put controls on asylum seekers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump issued that policy in the spring of 2020, saying at the time that he was protecting human health. The Biden administration has tried to lift Title 42 this year but a Louisiana federal court blocked the move in May.”

According to this article on Forbes, by Stuart Anderson | Senior Contributor

“Action in Congress on green cards and an administrative change on humanitarian parole by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has injected a rare bit of good news on immigration policy. The coming weeks will reveal if the news remains positive.

Humanitarian Parole: When the Biden administration decided to follow through on Donald Trump’s agreement with the Taliban to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the central government in Kabul fell too quickly for many Afghans to escape to safety.

Biden officials used parole authority to bring tens of thousands of Afghans to America. However, that still left many other Afghans in danger.”
