Biden Administration Grants New Deportation Protection for Venezuelans in the U.S. Illegally

The Biden administration said it would grant temporary legal authorization to Venezuelans in the U.S. without permission, allowing potentially hundreds of thousands of people to remain in the country.

The Temporary Protected Status designation, which lasts for 18 months and can be renewed, offers Venezuelans in the U.S. work permits and temporary protection against deportation. Venezuelans who enter the U.S. after March 8 can’t qualify for the program, a senior administration official said. As many as 320,000 people could be eligible for the program, the person said.

The decision, which follows a nearly identical move by former President Donald Trump in his final hours in office, is the first major policy move in the Biden administration’s pressure campaign against the Venezuelan regime of President Nicolás Maduro.
