Biden Announces New Parole Program for Migrants from Nicaragua, Haiti, and Cuba

Ahead of a planned visit to the U.S.-Mexico border on Sunday, President Joe Biden announced a new immigration plan under which his Administration will start new parole processes modeled on the current parole program in effect for migrants from Venezuela and Ukraine. The new program will allow up to 30,000 migrants per month from Nicaragua, Haiti, and Cuba to enter the country and work legally for up to two years. To qualify, migrants from Nicaragua, Haiti, and Cuba must apply for parole from their home countries. The U.S. would expel any migrant that attempts to enter the U.S. unlawfully from Mexico without first applying for parole from their home country.

The plan also calls for increasing resources at the U.S.-Mexico border to expedite removal of unlawful border crossers and the issuance of a joint Department of Homeland Security/Department of Justice proposed rule to incentivize the use of the new parole process to enter the U.S. and deter further illegal entry.
