U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) says it will increase the number of applications it receives each year from immigrants who want to work in the U.C.M.V. by 30 percent and the number applying each year for employment in the country illegally by 40 percent.
The new policy, announced by USCIS Director Scott L. Thornton on Friday, is part of a wider effort to increase the numbers of people who can access temporary visas.
Thornton said in a statement that the change will allow more people to get temporary visas this year than the number currently available.
“We are making it easier for immigrants who are already here to work, but the biggest change is that the visa is not only going up, but people who have lived in the United States for a number of years are getting an increase in their eligibility,” Thornton said.
The announcement comes amid a nationwide effort by Trump to overhaul immigration policies.”
This will also help the economy as we move forward in terms of increasing the number in the job market and making sure that we can hire more people in the economy.”
The announcement comes amid a nationwide effort by Trump to overhaul immigration policies.
The administration said Friday that it would open more than 2.1 million jobs for immigrants in the coming months, including in agriculture, construction, technology, and more.
The announcement follows Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and give permanent residency to millions of people brought into the country as children.
Under the DACA program, which began in 2012, undocumented immigrants brought to the country legally by their parents as children can apply for temporary visas and work legally in the nation’s capital for up to two years.
But once they have been approved for permanent residency, they must return to the U: They cannot apply for new visas.
Under Thornton’s new plan, immigrants who meet certain criteria will be able to apply for permanent residence, and they will have to wait three years before they can apply again.
Under Trump’s plan, which he called “the worst-kept secret in Washington,” undocumented immigrants who live in the area for at least two years are allowed to apply in two years, and can reapply for a second time once their status is approved.
Trump’s proposal has attracted widespread criticism from Republicans in Congress and has caused some controversy among immigrants and their allies.
In a letter to Thornton on Monday, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called the policy “ridiculous” and said he was concerned that the administration would “turn away people who are here to get a good job.”
