The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is creating a parole program to allow certain family members of Filipino and Filipino-American World War II veterans to receive parole to come to the United States.
parole program was announced in November 2014 by President Obama and
Secretary Johnson as part of the executive actions on immigration and is
detailed in the White House report, Modernizing and Streamlining Our Legal Immigration System for the 21st century, issued
in July 2015. The program may enable these eligible family members to
provide support and care to their aging veteran family members who are
U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
Parole, as provided
for under the Immigration and Nationality Act, gives DHS discretion, on a
case-by-case basis, to permit individuals to come to the United States
for a temporary period of time based upon urgent humanitarian reasons or
for significant public benefit. Parole does not give the individual any
permanent right to remain in the United States.
USCIS reminds customers that they cannot
apply at this time. Any applications received before the program is
implemented may be denied. We will inform the public when the
application process is in place. Register to receive email updates.
