Understanding Newcomer Immigration Statuses

This animated video highlights the different humanitarian immigrant pathways that exist in the United States including categories like refugee, asylee, special immigrant visa holder, humanitarian parolees, Cuban/Haitian entrants, and temporary protected status. It provides a basic overview of the criteria that defines each category and acknowledges that each one has implications for receiving ORR benefits. This resource can be used by ORR-funded resettlement agencies to help educate volunteers, community members, and newly hired service providers.
