President Biden has announced new measures to streamline the work visa application process for U.S. college graduates, including DACA recipients, often referred to as Dreamers. Here’s an overview of the changes and their implications:

Detailed Changes

  • Improved Application Process: Efforts will be made to streamline the current employment visa procedures, making it easier for U.S.-educated individuals to remain in the country.
  • Prioritizing Graduates: While basic work visa requirements like the H-1B remain unchanged, there will be an emphasis on prioritizing applications from graduates of U.S. colleges, including DACA recipients. Specific implementation details are forthcoming.
  • Waivers for Unlawful Presence: The administration plans to facilitate the waiver process for individuals with prior unlawful presence, offering a more lenient and expedited approach for this group.
  • National Interest: Recognizing the value of foreign-educated individuals, the policy aims to retain these talents to support the national interest, especially in addressing skill shortages in various sectors.

This new policy not only provides opportunities for individuals seeking work in the U.S. but also benefits American businesses by ensuring access to a pool of highly skilled workers. By aligning immigration policy with the demands of the 21st-century economy, the administration aims to foster innovation and economic growth.
