The Biden administration will make it easier for low-income immigrants to become permanent U.S. residents through a new regulation in December that will mark a dramatic shift from strict Trump-era immigration requirements, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Thursday.

And you get all theses benefits!


  • Be protected by all laws of the United States, your state of residence, and local jurisdiction
  • Live permanently anywhere in the United States, as long as you do not take any action that could make you deportable under immigration law
  • Work legally in the United States in any job that suits your qualifications (some jobs are limited to U.S. citizens for security reasons)
  • Apply to become a U.S. citizen once you qualify
  • Apply for a permanent residence for your spouse and any unmarried children under 21 years of age
  • Get public benefits like Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, and Medicare, if you qualify, to help cover the cost of food, child care, and medical care
  • SNAP benefits (food stamps), unemployment benefits, temporary assistance, CHIP assistance, and other benefit programs
