President Joe Biden, in his first speech to Congress in April 2021, pledged to push for comprehensive immigration reforms that would allow the 11 million unauthorized foreigners in the US to become legal immigrants and US citizens. Biden also endorsed bills approved by the House with some Republican support in March 2021 to legalize Dreamers, who are unauthorized foreigners who arrived in the US before age 16, and unauthorized farm workers.
A May 2021 DHS blueprint to implement Biden’s immigration vision laid out administrative changes that could make it easier for foreigners to obtain immigrant visas and naturalize, including substituting virtual for in-person interviews. Another change would make it easier for foreigners to receive asylum in the US due to domestic violence or discrimination in their home countries based on sexual orientation.
