( – President Joe Biden is looking at a potential immigration policy that would provide illegal migrants a green card if they had been in the United States for so long that their family members could face “unusual hardship” as a result of deportation. 

The “cancellation of removal” policy, as it is called, could result in as many as 4,000 migrants each year being given lawful permanent residence. This would apply to illegals who have been in the United States for over a decade. Those who want to participate in the program would need to apply according to the Executive Office for Immigration Review. 

This latest immigration policy idea has resulted from former President Barack Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. 

The document states that there are several criteria for the program, including having the person’s U.S. citizen or lawful permanent spouse, child, or parent suffer because of the hardship that would be caused by the deportation. Not being convicted of any serious crimes under U.S. law, being of “good moral character” and having been in the United States for more than a decade. 

DACA allowed children who were illegally brought into the country to receive green cards. 

Over a month ago Biden had told governors across the country that he was looking at possible executive action he could take in order to curb illegal immigration. However, Politico in a report noted that Biden had not taken any actions at the border, as there has been a decrease in migration since the record number of illegal crossings late last year.
