Weekly US Immigration Stories You Must Know

In this blog, we will highlight this week’s top US immigration stories.



ICE To Introduce A New Device To Track & Monitor Migrants

ICE has come up with an advanced device to track migrants released from federal immigration custody that’s sort of a smartwatch.



The device has GPS technology to track migrants enrolled in the Alternatives to Detention Program of the Biden administration. The program monitors migrants who do not pose a threat to the country’s national security.

Delayed Visa Processing Puts Immigrants At Risk

It seems that the growing backlog for U visas left many immigrant crime victims hanging. It should be noted that U visas issued to immigrants who are also victims of crime and are interested in cooperating with US law enforcement have to wait for several years to have their petitions processed.

Such delays leave vulnerable applicants with no legal status and deprive them of basic services, including healthcare and employment until their visa is approved.

First Deportation Flight To Cuba From The US

The first deportation flight to Cuba since the pandemic began in 2020 recently departed under the supervision of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security was reported as saying that the United States wants to encourage Cubans to go through lawful processes for migration. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is gearing up for an estimated intake of migrants at the

US-Mexico border, as the COVID-era border policy is set to be lifted on 11 May.

Ukrainian Refugees Might Be Asked To Exit The US

The Biden administration launched Uniting for Ukraine, a humanitarian parole program to allow Ukrainians to live and work in the US, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. It enables thousands of Ukrainians to migrate and work in the US.

However, several immigrant advocates believe that the two-year-long stay granted to Ukrainian refugees last year is not sufficient, as the conflict continues without any hope of ending soon. The existing parole program doesn’t provide a pathway to permanent residency, and Ukrainians interested in living in the US have limited immigration options.
