Biden Proposes Fast-Track Citizenship for 500,000 Illegal Immigrants

President Joe Biden is rolling out a plan to give about 500,000 illegal immigrants a way to become American citizens more quickly. This plan will make it easier for illegal immigrants who are married to American citizens to apply for residency and eventually citizenship. Under current policies, these individuals have to leave the country and apply for legal entry, but Biden’s plan removes that requirement. The White House estimates that this program could benefit around 500,000 illegal immigrant spouses and 50,000 illegal immigrant stepchildren of U.S. citizens.

Critics of the plan argue that Biden is overstepping his authority by taking unilateral executive action without the approval of Congress. They claim that this move is illegal and unconstitutional. Additionally, the plan is said to primarily benefit illegal immigrants from Mexico. To qualify for the program, illegal immigrants must have been in the country for at least 10 years if they are spouses, and stepchildren covered under the program must be under 21 years old.

The New York Times has suggested that this plan could potentially help President Biden in upcoming elections, particularly in battleground states where there are significant numbers of voters in “mixed status” households. However, not everyone is in favor of the new program. The America First Policy Institute has spoken out against it, arguing that the Biden administration is ignoring the existing process for illegal immigrant spouses of U.S. citizens to resolve their violations of immigration laws. 


Former President Donald Trump has condemned the plan, stating that it is unsustainable and calling for a focus on border security and deporting illegal immigrants. He also criticized Biden’s approach to immigration and emphasized the need to prioritize the safety and interests of American citizens.

Overall, the plan has sparked debate and drawn criticism from those who believe it bypasses established immigration laws and could have broader implications for future immigration policies.
