From Vegas To Honolulu: Docs Show Where Foreign Nationals Paroled By Biden Admin Fly Into U.S.
WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 18: U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas speaks during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee hearing on the department's budget request on Capitol Hill on April 18, 2024 in Washington, DC. Mayorkas is back on the hill just a day after the U.S. Senate dismissed the articles of impeachment against him, voting on party lines that the charges did not meet the constitutional bar of high crimes or misdemeanors.

House Republicans released data on Tuesday showing where hundreds of thousands of inadmissible foreign nationals have flown into the United States after being authorized to travel into the country by the Biden administration under its “mass parole” system. 

Under the Department of Homeland Security’s Processes for Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan, and Venezuelan (CHNV) parole program, the Biden administration has approved over 404,000 foreign nationals from those countries for entry into the United States. The program ostensibly allows people from these countries to be paroled into the United States to work for up to two years for “humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.” Beneficiaries of the program also need to “arrange and fund their own travel,” according to DHS. 

Documents obtained by Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee show that paroled individuals flew into 50 different airports, primarily in the United States. The top two airport destinations were in Florida, according to the documents. 

Over 91,000 people flew into Miami, while over 60,000 were flown into Fort Lauderdale. Other top airport locations included New York City (14,827), Houston (7,923), Orlando (6,043), Los Angeles (3,271), Tampa (3,237), Dallas (2,256), San Francisco (2,052), Atlanta (1,796), Newark (1,498), Washington, D.C. (1,472), Chicago (496), Las Vegas (483), and Austin (171).

Other people flew into Hawaii, the Bahamas, Ireland, Canada, and the Virgin Islands. The numbers only include data from January 2023 until August 2023. 

DHS told the committee that the people approved for the program were technically inadmissible. “All individuals paroled into the United States are, by definition, inadmissible, including those paroled under the CHNV Processes,” the department said. 

“Secretary Mayorkas’ CHNV parole program is an unlawful sleight of hand used to hide the worsening border crisis from the American people. Implementing a program that allows otherwise inadmissible aliens to fly directly into the U.S. — not for significant public benefit or urgent humanitarian reasons as the Immigration and Nationality Act mandates — has been proven an impeachable offense,” said Homeland Security Committee Chair Mark Green (R-TN). 

At the same time, DHS has been flying paroled individuals from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, over half of illegal crossings at the southern border during fiscal year 2023 were from those countries, according to the committee. 


“Following our subpoena and the House’s impeachment vote — especially in light of the Senate’s complete failure to fulfill its duty to hold a trial — the Committee will not rest until this administration is finally held accountable for its open-borders agenda and its devastating impact on our homeland security,” Green added.
