The program, known as Parole in Place, would also clear the way to permanent legal status and US citizenship for hundreds of thousands of migrants, CBS News reported.

It would gut existing laws to remove obstacles preventing anyone who entered the US illegally from obtaining green cards without leaving the country.

Another plan being pushed by President Biden would allow migrants to request waivers that would make it easier for them to obtain temporary visas, such as H-1B visas for high-skilled workers, sources told CBS News.

The measures could be announced as early as Tuesday, when White House officials will host an event to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shield 530,000 illegal immigrants who entered the country as children from deportation.

It is expected to face major pushback from Republican lawmakers.
