Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the New York Times in Small Step Could Bring Big Relief to Young Undocumented Immigrants. The article discusses a measure announced by the Biden administration on June 18, 2024, that will enable certain Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries to receive employer-sponsored work visas and become eligible to apply through their employers for permanent residence. “It is a small step within a complex immigration system that can smooth the way for many individuals to get a work visa more quickly,” Steve said.

Steve was quoted by Forbes in DACA Recipients Could Gain H-1B Visas Under New Immigration Policy. He said, “The parole in place provisions for undocumented spouses of U.S. citizens will get more press attention, but the other administrative action may be just as important. Employers have been reluctant to use the D-3 waiver because the process was slow and unclear. New State Department guidance is expected to make D-3 waivers more predictable and faster. In this tight labor market, that will be great news for employers.”
