CBO: Biden Admin Has Released 6.2 Million Illegal Migrants into U.S. in 3 Years, Often Through ‘Parole’ Loophole

Neil Munro, Breitbart, January 23, 2024

President Joe Biden’s deputies have let 6.2 million illegal migrants into the United States, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Biden’s southern inflow is more than one migrant for every two American births since January 2021.

“More of those people are also being released into the United States than previously, generally through the use of parole authority or with a notice to appear before an immigration judge,” said the report, titled “The Demographic Outlook: 2014 to 2054.”

The 2023 inflow includes 900,000 migrants who were released after they walked up to official border gates plus 1.1 million migrants who were released after they crossed through gaps in the border wall, said the CBO agency, which acts as an advisor to Capitol Hill legislators.

Roughly have of those migrants — 1.1 million — were let into the country by October 1, 2023, via Biden’s use of the “parole” loophole in border law, the CBO reported. Biden and his Democratic allies are now trying to expand the parole doorway.

The 2023 inflow also included 860,000 “gotaways” who sneaked past Biden’s half-built and lightly guarded border wall and 430,000 people who remained in the United States long after their visas had expired.

The figure is close to the partial data released by the Department of Homeland Security in early January.

The CBO data does not include hundreds of thousands of migrants released since October 1, 2023.

The report noted that “CBO estimates that, on net, the number of people immigrating to the United States was 1.2 million in 2021 and 2.7 million in 2022.”

So Biden’s three years of inflows — 1.2 million, 2.7 million, and 3.3 million — up to October 2023  — add up to 6.2 million illegal migrants.


The CBO report did not discuss the legal inflow of foreign visitors who illegally take jobs for several months before returning home. This B-1/B-2 visa fraud is rarely mentioned by U.S. officials.

The CBO report also estimated that Biden will import an additional 3.3 million illegal migrants in 2024.

The report does not give a number for the inflow of legal immigrants. But a chart shows that number dipped to roughly 500,000 amid the COVID disaster. The CBO predicts — without evidence — that the migrant inflow drop rapidly after 2024.

The chart suggests that Biden added 2.25 million legal immigrants during his first three years.
