Disturbing new Border Patrol documents obtained by Fox News show that the Biden administration has released at least 160,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since March – including a broad use of limited parole authorities to make more than 30,000 eligible for work permits since August.
The troubling documents offer just a partial snapshot into how President Biden has been hard at work flooding America with illegals who often have little to no oversight or supervision.
Since March 20, at least 94,570 illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S. with Notices to Report. Those who receive such a notice are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination which could be anywhere in the country.
Those who check in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward.
Since Aug 6th, the administration has released roughly 32,000 immigrants into the U.S. via parole – which gives migrants a form of legal status and the ability to apply for work permits.
Federal law says parole authority is to be used on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit.”
This drastic action is typically only granted to a handful of individuals, but the Biden admin has been taking advantage of the law’s vague wording. This has been used most notably to fast track tens of thousands of Afghans into the United States as part of Operation Allies Welcome.
Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott, who served under President Biden, reviewed the documents said that he believes the administration is clearly abusing its parole authority.
“By law and regulation a parole shall only be granted on a case by case basis and only for significant humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. Neither of these appear to apply to the current situation,” he said, adding that the number of paroles brings into question the review and approval process.
“As a field chief, I don’t believe I ever approved more than 5 or 10 paroles in a year,” he said. “When I did, I ensured that the alien was monitored continuously and was detained or removed as soon as the circumstances allowed.”
The documents further revealed that since Aug 6, the administration has released an additional 40,000 illegal immigrants on their own recognizance.
The agency has yet not released its numbers for September, but in both July and August there were more than 200,000 migrant encounters, marking some of the highest numbers in two decades.
And the massive influx of migrants certainly did not slow down. According to the documents, Rio Grande Valley encountered 5,900 migrants in one week, while Del Rio encountered more than 2,900 in the same period.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly warned officials of a worst-case scenario of up to 400,000 encounters if Title 42 public health protections were ended.
The southern border crisis has been created thanks to Biden’s horrendous decision to roll back Trump-era border policies. The administration, meanwhile, has attempted to distract from their poor handling of the crisis by claiming that they are addressing the “root causes” of illegal immigration from countries south of the border.
