What is the CAM program?
The CAM program, which was initially implemented by the Obama administration in 2014, allows certain legal adult immigrants to submit an application to bring their children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
In mid-August 2017, the Trump administration ended the CAM program, affecting more than 4,000 immigrant minors. At that time, there were approximately 1465 minors in the US under this benefit.
Adding to that, there were approximately 2,714 minors whose applications for the CAM program had been approved, but which were dismissed after the Trump administration’s decision.

After reviving the CAM program, Biden changed certain parameters
In early March 2021, the Biden administration announced that it would reimplement the CAM program to allow immigrants who met eligibility requirements to bring their children from abroad.
It is worth mentioning that the Biden administration also changed and expanded certain parameters of the CAM program. Let’s look at some important facts:
- Initially, the Biden administration proposes to review applications rejected or denied under the Trump administration.
- The Biden administration expanded the eligibility categories and now not only lawful permanent residents and American citizens can be part of the CAM program, but also certain TPS (Temporary Protected Status) beneficiaries, asylum seekers with pending cases, crime victim visa holders, DED (Deferred Enforced Departure) beneficiaries, inter alia.
- According to the current administration’s estimates, the expansion of the CAM program will benefit hundreds of thousands of immigrant parents and minors.

The CAM program might improve the border situation
It is no secret that the surge of illegal border crossings has put the Biden administration in a rather difficult position since the beginning of the year, especially when it comes to the controversy surrounding unaccompanied immigrant minors, the vast majority of whom cross the US’ borders to reunite with their loved ones.
Therefore, the CAM program could contribute to decrease border apprehension rates and to protect the integrity of immigrant minors.
