Under a new “parole program,” the Department of Homeland Security has said it will let tens of thousands of illegal immigrants into the United States.
Citing humanitarian reasons, the Biden Administration’s new policy reportedly creates a free pass for illegal immigrants from Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
As reported in the Washington Examiner:
The Biden administration has created a special free pass for thousands of illegal immigrants to enter the United States if they have ties to family already inside the country.
The Department of Homeland Security said it is reestablishing a questionable program used by former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama to let in 73,500 immigrants from Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
The story goes on to cite analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies on the perils of letting illegal immigrants skip the line to get in the U.S.
A new analysis of the program said the system lets immigrants skip the line to get into the U.S. and join their relatives if they qualify ahead of others who have been in line for years.
The Center for Immigration Studies said the “parole program” also helps to hide the real number of immigrants flooding into the country from Latin America.
“The creation of this program is also another method the Biden administration is employing to obscure data underlying the mass illegal immigration crisis in the United States. By paroling aliens into the United States from these countries, which in recent years have accounted for large percentages of border encounters, the Biden administration will be able to further reduce the number of aliens apprehended between ports of entry DHS reports each month, while still allowing large numbers of inadmissible aliens to enter, remain, and work in the United States without a visa,” the analysis said.
As CAPS has routinely documented, numerous amnesty programs since the 1970s have resulted in more illegal immigration and further calls for amnesty for newly arrived illegal immigrants.
