Hope has risen for Ukrainians refugees who were processed along the southern border after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Following President Joe Biden’s administration decision, thousands of the refugees processed will be allowed to remain and work in the U.S. legally for at least another one year, according to government’s official notice

It would be recalled that soon after Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, which displaced millions of refugees, thousands of Ukrainians flew to the Mexico seeking to enter the U.S. along the southern border, mainly in California.

In a few weeks, U.S. border officials allowed more than 20,000 Ukrainians to enter the country, exempting them from a pandemic restriction known as Title 42 that has blocked hundreds of thousands of migrants from staying in the U.S.
