President Biden has reversed the Trump administration’s ban on green cards issued outside the United States. The move paves the way for certain family members to reunify in the U.S. with relatives who are citizens or permanent residents. Biden’s executive order also restores temporary visas to some categories of foreign workers, including highly skilled workers, managers and au pairs.

In more immigration news, lawyers say they have recently found the parents of 105 migrant children who were ripped from their families by the Trump administration. The parents of over 500 separated children still have not been found, and over half of them were likely deported, according to the lawyers.
