  • Beginning June 8, 2016
    • This policy will allow certain Filipino World War II veteran family members who are beneficiaries of approved family-based immigrant visa petitions an opportunity to receive a discretionary grant of parole on a case-by-case basis, so that they may come to the United State as they wait for their immigrant visa to become available.
    • This will enable eligible individuals to provide support and care to their aging veteran family members who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
