Biden Administration Lets Ukrainians Who Fled War Stay In US

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration is allowing thousands of Ukrainians who fled their homeland when Russia invaded a year ago to stay in the United States longer.

The administration announced the decision Monday.

The move provides relief to Ukrainians whose one-year authorization to stay in the U.S. was set to expire soon.

Thousands of Ukrainians came to the U.S. last year fleeing a brutal war sparked by Russia’s invasion.

The U.S. used a program called humanitarian parole as a quick way to allow thousands of people into the country.

But that program is for a finite amount of time and must be renewed for people to stay longer.
