The Biden administration will seek to maintain the program

The Biden administration will seek to maintain the program

The current US administration, led by Joe Biden, stated that it will do everything in its power to maintain humanitarian parole. This is a legal migration route for residents of Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

Thousands have already benefited from this policy since its implementation in January 2023. Recently, Blas Nuñez Neto, Under Secretary of Homeland Security of the United States, pointed out this issue.

The executive stressed his government's commitment to defending the program. His statements appeared publicly during a press conference about cooperation between the United States, Guatemala, and Mexico to reduce illegal immigration.

“We are very committed to continuing the implementation of this program,” the senior official stressed. Nunez Neto explained that the administration will act forcefully against possible negative decisions in the courts.

He also warned that “we will discuss with our Department of Justice what the next steps are, but we are very committed to continuing to implement this program.”

Words of relief

The words of this senior US official about parole on humanitarian grounds are a “balm” for thousands of immigrants who are still waiting for a response to their case.

All this comes amid numerous rumors linked to the impossibility of appealing Judge Drew Tipton's unfavorable ruling.

Since its implementation until now, the aforementioned immigration program has allowed more than 357,000 people to legally immigrate to the United States. The entire process is done under the care of US residents.

For example, Cubans represent a large number of beneficiaries, with more than 75,000 applications for Form I-134A approved by USCIS.
