United States Representative Mark Green (R-TN), who serves as the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, blasted the Biden administration’s latest amnesty as “an affront to the rule of law.”

Green’s comments came after President Joe Biden would grant “parole amnesty” to roughly 550,000 illegal immigrants who are married to United States citizens and who have been residing illegally in the country for at least 10 years. Those who qualify for the amnesty program will be able to be granted green cards before ultimately receiving United States citizenship.

The Congressman from Tennessee contended that the move from the Biden administration “further legitimizes unlawful entry into our country.”

“By allowing otherwise inadmissible aliens to remain in the country indefinitely through a ‘parole-in-place’ sleight of hand, and to receive generous, taxpayer-funded benefits, this president is sending a loud and clear message to any would-be border crosser that the door is not only wide open — there’s a welcome mat,” Green went on to add.

“Despite being intended for use in extraordinary circumstances only, Biden and Mayorkas have warped the parole statute beyond recognition,” explained Lora Ries, the Heritage Foundation’s Director of the Border Security and Immigration Center.

Biden’s decision comes just after it was revealed that his administration dismissed the asylum proceedings of about 350,000 migrants in a move that United States Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) called a “covert mass amnesty program.”


“These migrants are then no longer required to check in with authorities and can pursue other avenues to obtain legal status and remain in the country,” the senator explained.

Biden’s decision to provide legal status to over half a million illegal immigrants and dismiss the asylum proceedings of several hundred thousand migrants comes as the Democrat president has presided over the single most severe illegal immigration crisis that the United States has ever witnessed.

Authorities have recorded over 9.5 million nationwide encounters and 1.7 million estimated illegal immigrant gotaways during the Democrat’s presidential term.

The seismic increase in illegal immigration is so severe that the foreign-born population residing in the United States has surged to an all-time high of 51.6 million people under Biden, with the massive increase being driven primarily by mass illegal immigration.
