Since March 20, at least 94,570 illegal immigrants have been left in the US with notices to report. Those who receive such a notice are only required to check with the ICE office upon arrival at their final destination – which can be anywhere across the country. Those who check in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings proceed.
Meanwhile, since August 6, the administration has released about 32,000 immigrants to the US through parole – which gives migrants legal status and the ability to apply for work permits.
Federal law states that parole authority is to be used on a case-by-case basis for “immediate humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit”. Usually only a handful of parole cases are granted by authorities, but the Biden administration is using it more widely, including the parole of tens of thousands of Afghans in the United States as part of Operation Alliance Welcome.
Former Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott, who served under President Biden, reviewed the documents and told Granthshala News he believes the administration is abusing its parole authority.
“Parole will be granted only on a case-to-case basis and only for important humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit as per law and regulations. None of these apply to the current situation,” he said. Questions on the review and approval process.
“As a field chief, I don’t believe I’ve ever been granted more than 5 or 10 paroles in a year,” he said. “When I did, I made sure the alien was constantly monitored and detained or removed as soon as circumstances allowed.”

Documents also show that in one day in the Del Rio sector, 128 single adult illegal immigrants were released into the US without an ATD – which typically involves tracking by ankle monitoring or phone.
A Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Granthshala that mechanisms such as paroling, the use of the NTR and enrolling migrants in the Option for Detention (ATD) “allow family units released from CBP custody to be sent to ICE within a specified time.” provide the mechanism for requiring reporting.”
The official also cited statistics that show that between 2014 and 2020, 81% of those released in the US reported for their immigration proceedings.
The agency has not released its numbers for September, but there were more than 200,000 migrant encounters in both July and August, marking some of the highest numbers in two decades. Since then a large number of migrants have been coming. According to documents, the Rio Grande Valley faced 5,900 migrants in a week, while Del Rio faced more than 2,900 migrants in the same period.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Meyercas, who has repeatedly claimed the border is not open, reportedly warned officials of a worst-case scenario of 400,000 encounters if Title 42 public health protections were abolished.
Republicans have blamed the Biden administration’s rapid rollback of Trump-era border security for the ongoing border crisis. However the administration has focused on an explanation emphasizing “root causes” such as poverty, corruption and violence in Central America.
“Slowdown in economies, attendant increase in violence, slowdown in economies exacerbated by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, suppression of any humanitarian relief over the past several years, and a suppressed thirst for relief among many isolated populations.” For,” Meyerkas told Yahoo News this week. “I think an accumulation of factors contribute to the increase in migration that we’ve seen.”
