Feds: 1.6 Million Foreign Nationals Awaiting Entry to U.S. through Biden’s Parole Pipeline

A significant number of foreign nationals are awaiting authorization to fly to the United States as part of President Joe Biden’s parole pipeline {snip}

The documents, released by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) on Tuesday, detail specifics regarding the administration’s CHNV program, which has allowed more than 400,000 nationals of Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to fly to the U.S. {snip}

Notably, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told the committee that as of mid-October 2023, “approximately 1.6 million” foreign nationals had applied to secure travel authorization to the U.S. under the CHNV program.


“There is currently a monthly limit of 30,000 [Advance Travel Authorizations] that may be issued [to foreign nationals] under CHNV processes,” DHS officials noted in their response to the committee.

Also in their response, DHS officials admitted that even as the administration has opened the parole pipeline for foreign nationals to travel to the U.S., they are still inadmissible under federal law, meaning they have no legal basis to be in the U.S.


“Secretary Mayorkas’ CHNV parole program is an unlawful sleight of hand used to hide the worsening border crisis from the American people,” Green continued. “Implementing a program that allows otherwise inadmissible aliens to fly directly into the U.S. … has been proven an impeachable offense.”
