Illegal migrants may be free to hold American jobs more than twice as long as they are now under a new proposal drafted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Under the direction of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, the idea is to allow some unauthorized immigrants to remain in the U.S. working jobs for up to five years. That’s over twice the current limit on these migrants.
It fits perfectly into the Biden administration’s proven agenda of flooding the nation with as many illegal migrants as possible.
If enacted, the change would apply to those who filed asylum claims after they crossed the border to stop their deportation. The Washington Times reported it would also apply to those wanting legal permanent residency — or a green card.
The current limit for the Employment Authorization Document is two years.
Officials argue that extending the term to five years is “in the interest of reducing the burden on both the agency and the public.” Many strongly disagree.

Robert Law was the policy chief for U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services under former President Donald Trump. He said the scheme will create incentives to lure even more migrants across the nation’s porous borders.
Now with the America First Policy Institute, Law noted the proposal is a “blatantly political move” designed to keep immigrants in the nation after what may be a change in the White House in 2025.
It is just one in a long series of acts by the Biden White House to sweeten the pot for illegal migrants to stay in the country.
In June, the administration announced a plan to extend “deportation relief” through 2025 for over 300,000 migrants. Those affected originated from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Nepal.
The extension stopped short of broadening the scope of persons allowed to stay in the U.S. — likely due to strong Republican opposition.
And the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program is one that former President Donald Trump actively sought to end. Despite his efforts, Democrats were able to stymie the program’s termination through the courts.
Some TPS designations, which are theoretically because the migrant cannot return to their home country for some cause, may last for decades.
