White House officials confirmed to Telemundo News that they have discussed implementing the measure, similar to the one extended to Venezuelans in 2022. Biden is expected to make the announcement Thursday morning.


The United States government plans to allow some 30,000 Cuban, Haitian and Nicaraguan migrants to apply each month to a program, similar to the one established for Venezuelans in 2022, which would grant them a regular path to enter the United States, White House officials confirmed to Telemundo News.

The measure is expected to be announced by President Joe Biden at a press conference this Thursday.

The program, which has been running since October for people from Venezuela, requires as a requirement to demonstrate that you have someone within US territory who submits an application and can sponsor you financially, after passing a criminal record check.

The measure grants

legal status for two years to those who arrive by plane and expressly expels migrants who try to cross the border

under Title 42, which remains in force after the Supreme Court suspended its eradication in December.

The policy sought to stop the irregular crossing of migrants across the southern border and grant an "ordered" protocol to those fleeing the "humanitarian and economic crisis in their country."

According to preliminary figures from the Department of Homeland Security, from October 18 to 31, almost 7,000 authorizations had been granted to Venezuelans through the program.

The quota established for them was 24,000 people.

Regarding the extension to other nationalities, it remains to be clarified whether the 30,000 seats will be for each country or divided among Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans.

The announcement comes after Biden announced Wednesday that he is contemplating visiting the southern border for the first time since he took office in 2021, and under increasing pressure from Republican politicians who criticize the increase in irregular crossings into the United States through Mexico.

"It is my intention, we are working on the details now," he replied when asked about his trip.

Biden is scheduled to attend the North American Leaders Summit in Mexico City next week.
