Voice of America News: Biden Administration Gives Hope to Stateless People in US

by Aline Barros, Immigration Reporter for Voice of America News

WASHINGTON — Karina Ambartsoumian-Clough is a stateless person living in the United States.

"I'm from a country that doesn't exist anymore," Ambartsoumian-Clough told VOA. She is one of the 218,000 stateless people living in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which on Tuesday said it would clarify what stateless means for immigration purposes.

Ambartsoumian-Clough says it is a "huge step forward in terms of recognizing people like us in this country."

On Thursday, DHS organized a private listening session on the statelessness policy.
