The Biden administration denies claims that it is smuggling 320,000 migrants into the country

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and others are using a Biden administration program meant to lessen chaotic migrant arrivals at the southern border as a political football, portraying it as a covert effort to bring hundreds of thousands of migrants into the country. On January 5, 2023, the Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans (CHNV) parole program was announced by the White House. Under U.S. immigration law, citizens of those four nations may seek for legal entrance into the country from overseas under the humanitarian parole provisions.

 

Officials from the White House stated that the program is a component of the administration’s attempts to deter unauthorized crossings of the southern border of the United States. Once applicants demonstrate they have financial sponsors in the United States and clear background checks, they can enter the nation lawfully. The humanitarian parole authority grants accepted candidates temporary legal residency and employment in the United States. Trump’s assertion was supported by a study from the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based organization that supports limiting immigration to the United States. CIS claims that since the program’s inception, the government has concealed the locations of the 320,000 immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela who have arrived at American airports.

 

It was revealed today that 325,000 migrants, bypassing borders, have been airlifted in from unidentified locations. In a speech on Tuesday, Trump added, “It was unbelievable.” “I stated that had to be an error. 325,000 migrants were flown by them. took them by flight across the boundaries into our nation. The American Immigration Council’s policy director, Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, told VOA that individuals enrolled in the program must obtain travel authorization, pay for their own airfare, and board a commercial aircraft in order to enter the country. “Everyone approved for parole is vetted by the U.S. government prior to being granted the status,” Reichlin-Melnick said.
