The Biden administration will allow thousands of Ukrainian refugees who were processed at the U.S. southern border to legally remain and work in the U.S. for at least one more year. The Ukrainians who entered the country at the southern border were only granted 12 months parole, while those who entered through the Uniting for Ukraine policy received two years.
In addition, Ukrainians who only received one year of parole because they were already in the U.S. before April 2022 when the Biden administration started the Uniting for Ukraine humanitarian parole program, but after the Russia invasion in February 2022, may also have their parole extended.
