After assuming office in January, President Joe Biden announced significant changes to the United States’ (US) immigration policy. Now months into his presidency, President Biden and his administration are executing the changes promised through a new immigration bill. The proposed bill has provisions that will particularly benefit business immigrants as well as international students already studying in the US and those aspiring to study there.
There are many clauses worth attention to, for international students, however, one of the provisions that stand out is the dual intention provision. Dual intention, if recognised would not only brighten the prospects of international students to stay back and later settle down in the US but would also cut down paperwork and abate the risk of visa rejection. In a fast-changing US political landscape, it is important to look into Biden’s immigration policy as well as explore the dual intent clause of the bill and delve into its implications for aspiring students.
