Editor’s Pick: WashTimes EXPOSES Illegals Cheating Biden ‘Parole’ System

March 18th, 2024 10:25 AM

On the front page of Monday’s Washington Times, the great Stephen Dinan had an exclusive on how wannabe illegal immigrants in Nicaragua have been gaming the Biden administration’s so-called parole program that, for a mere $5,000 (in other words, a bribe to smugglers), they could apply and come to the U.S.

As usual with such reporting from The Washington Times, Dinan’s story has fallen on deaf ears across the liberal media despite the fact that, as Dinan noted, the alleged murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley “was admitted through parole at the border” along with the alleged rapist of “a 15-year-old fellow migrant at a state-run migrant shelter in Massachusetts” (in screenshot to the right).

Dinan explained that “scammers charge would-be migrants $1,000 upfront, which buys them contact with an American willing to fill out the forms promising financial support” and then another “$4,000 to the scammers” for a journey to the U.S. once approved by the Biden Department of Homeland Security.

He added a source “who saw the scam in operation in Nicaragua” told him that this process “is being sold on the open market.”

Dinan said this is as “the CHNV program,” which is “Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ special treatment for migrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela.”

After being unveiled in 2022 for Venezuelans, it was extended last year to include Cuba, Hait, and Nicaragua (hence the acronym) 

He continued with more background on the CHNV program:

The CHNV program allowed up to 30,000 people a month to bypass the border and fly directly into airports in the interior of the country, where they are granted a two-year pass under Mr. Mayorkas’ power of parole.

The key requirement is that they have either a person or entity in the U.S. who promises to support them financially should they be unable to do so themselves.

That is where the sales come in: Would-be migrants who don’t have family or other connections can pay to link up with a sponsor.

The Biden administration, in response to questions from The Times, said migrants are “not encouraged” to strike those sorts of deals but did not say they are against the rules.

Despite assurances from Biden immigration officials that they run “every prospective supporter through a series of fraud- and security-based screening measures”, Dinann showed the facts reveal it’s less-than rigorous with an overall approval rate of about 96 percent for sponsors and then an inspection upon arrival “by Customs and Border Protection officers” was “roughly 97 percent.”

“For Nicaraguans, the financial approval was 94% and CBP approval on arrival was 95%,” he added.
