A document recently obtained by the New York Times outlines President Biden’s plans to make legal immigration to the United States much quicker and easier. The document, entitled “D.H.S. (Department of Homeland Security) Plan to Restore Trust in Our Legal Immigration System,” lists a number of initiatives that will simplify the path to legal immigration for many groups, including foreign investors.
While the restrictions imposed during the Trump administration made legal immigration a much longer and harder process, the Biden administration wants to change that. According to a White House news brief, President Biden believes that “our country is safer, stronger, and more prosperous with a fair, safe, and orderly immigration system that welcomes immigrants.”
Included in the D.H.S. document are several intended measures that will attempt to simplify the process of legal immigration to the United States. The document proposed shorter, less complicated forms for would-be immigrants, as well as the opportunity for a less expensive, online application process. The proposed policies also listed the possibility of a fee waiver for qualifying applicants, in order to cut down on the number of barriers faced by those who wish to come to the United States.
In addition to simplifying the application process, the new policies suggested in the D.H.S. document would create more chances for work visas and would make it easier for highly skilled workers to come to the United States. Furthermore, the new policies would create new pathways for foreign entrepreneurs who want to establish a business in the U.S.
With the population growth of the United States slowing down in recent years, easing the process of legal immigration is predicted to benefit the United States economy, as well providing greater opportunities for foreign workers, investors, and entrepreneurs.
