USCIS extends parole

Jul 1, 2019

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service announced late Friday afternoon that humanitarian parole would be extended for all persons in the Marianas for whom parole was ended on December 27, 2018. These former parolees are covered by U.S. Public Law 116-24, signed by the President on Tuesday, and could now be eligible for permanent resident status in the Marianas. Extending their parole allows these individuals to remain lawfully present in the Marianas while USCIS sets up a process for them to apply for permanent residence under terms of the new law. The parole extension runs through October 28, 2019. Parolee employment authorizations are also being automatically extended for that period of time. See the announcement from USCIS here.
