OPINION: Biden’s Trojan Horse

By: Ted  Xenakis – 5/24

Unless you are drunk on liberal Kool-Aide, you know America has a crisis at our southern border. For reasons that are all too apparent to any thinking person, Joe Biden is changing the demographics in America like no other time in our nation’s history.

He’s a one-man wrecking crew whose open-door policy should prompt articles of impeachment as it goes well beyond simple malfeasance.

However, what you may not know is that Biden has nuclearized a law that’s been on the books for decades. It’s known as Immigration Parole and was first created in 1956 when President Eisenhower wanted to allow 30,000 Hungarians to enter the country after that nation’s unsuccessful revolt against the Soviet Union.

This law has gone through various iterations over the decades since 1956, with the latest being the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) passed in 1996, which amended parole to be determined “only on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.”

As the law states, use of parole immigration was intended to be on a case-by-case basis, and only for urgent humanitarian reasons or for significant public benefit. One would think that these criteria would result in only a modest amount of paroles granted each year.

In fact, under both the Obama and Trump administrations, that is exactly how these paroles were awarded. According to Senator Lindsay Graham, both Obama and Trump issued an annual average of 5,623 paroles to migrants.

According to Senator Graham, “In Fiscal Year (FY) 2022, President Biden paroled 795,561 migrants. In FY 2023 he has already paroled 802,764 migrants and that total does not include the 4th quarter. It is likely the Biden Administration will have paroled approximately 1.2 million migrants in FY 2023 when final figures are available.”

Does that sound like a case-by-case basis? Can there be that many urgent humanitarian or significant public benefit reasons? Bear in mind that these paroles are in addition to migrants who seek asylum in America or are otherwise refugees.

According to the American Immigration Council, “The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to exercise discretion to temporarily allow certain noncitizens to physically enter or remain in the United States if they are applying for admission but do not have a legal basis for being admitted.

DHS may only grant parole if the agency determines that there are urgent humanitarian or significant public benefit reasons for a person to be in the United States, and that person merits a favorable exercise of discretion. Grants of parole are made for limited periods of time, often to accomplish a discrete purpose, and individuals are typically expected to depart the United States when the authorized period expires unless another form of status or relief is conferred.

While individuals who receive a grant of parole are allowed to enter the United States, they are not provided with an immigration status, nor are they formally “admitted” into the country for purposes of immigration law. An admission occurs when an immigration officer allows a noncitizen to enter the United States pursuant to a visa or another entry document, without the limitation of parole. The distinction between an admission and parole is a significant one under immigration law.”

Clearly, under Biden and his impeached DHS Secretary, the Immigration Parole law is being subverted to afford just another illegal means to flood America with illegal immigrants. Does anyone really believe that the government is keeping track of these folks after they dissolve into the American landscape?

This November, America will be at a crossroads that it hasn’t faced in well over a century.

Donald Trump promises complete shutdown of the border, destruction of the cartels and massive deportations.
He may not be able to achieve these goals, but he is at least making his case for putting an end to Biden’s insanity. ◊
