US will let in at least 100,000 Latin Americans to reunite with families

SAN DIEGO (AP) — President Joe Biden’s administration has promised to offer more legal options for Latin American migrants to come to the United States to be reunited with their families. The plans coincide with the government’s lifting of pandemic-era restrictions Thursday that have barred most asylum seekers from entering the United States. But U.S. officials have released few details about who would be eligible for the immigration permissions known as family reunification parole. Immigration attorneys say they believe it will likely be for Latin Americans who are U.S. citizens or green card holders who already petitioned for their families to be allowed to join them.
