Attorney Ji Hyun Ryu, Esq. highlighted Immigration Policies of the Biden Administration. She noted that Biden’s policy seek to increase the number of visas allocated to H-1B and increase the number of permanent residencies. Biden also proposes implementing a permanent residency system that can be applied by a city and county, and issuing temporary visas during Green Card approval processes. Since the USCIS has already changed how it operates under the Trump Administration, it is still unclear whether the proposed policies by the Biden Administration can be implemented before March 2021.
