The Legacy and End of Military Parole in Place (PIP)

Parole in Place (PIP) is an immigration process that allows US-based family members of American military personnel to “adjust status” and become US permanent residents without leaving the country (USCIS Policy Memorandum PM-602-0091, November 15, 2013). PIP reflects the belief that the United States government should provide support to family members of military personnel. Unfortunately, PIP policy is set to end soon.
