Welcome to the Immigration Minute with Godoy Law Office where we give you the recent immigration updates in a minute.
Last week the Biden administration reversed the Trump administration’s policy that made immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang violence in their home countries generally ineligible for asylum in the U.S. These changes return the immigration law to what existed prior to the Trump administration.
USCIS, also known as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, stated that they are updating their policies that would provide victims of crime in the U.S. with quicker access to employment authorization. Employment authorization will be provided to immigrants with pending bona fide U-Visa applications. U-Visas are set aside for immigrants who are victims of mental or physical abuse that help the government officials in their investigations and prosecutions of crime.
