Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has quietly slipped in over 100,000 so-called “economic migrants” under the guise of a new “parole pathway.”
The New York Times reported the border chief oversaw the admission of these migrants from May to December 2022, a scheme that was just revealed in January. This pathway is welcoming at least another 20,000 migrants per month into the country.
GOP-led states sued Tuesday to try to stop President Biden's "parole" program that would create a new pathway for up to 30,000 migrants to enter the U.S. each month. https://t.co/8d9kLhxVuT

The Biden administration implemented this method for gaining entry into the U.S. early last year, though it was only exposed in November by Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies.
On Jan. 25, administration officials held a briefing to explain to journalists how the pathway is being utilized. As may be expected from the mainstream media, few bothered to break down this scheme for the public to understand.
The White House was not, however, able to slip the news past vigilant red states. On Tuesday, a coalition of 20 attorneys general filed suit in federal court against Biden’s DHS over this expansion of its “catch and release” program that is flooding the nation’s interior with illegal migrants.
The suit challenged the administration’s new policy of allowing “up to 30,000 qualifying nationals per month” from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Haiti to remain in the U.S. and work while waiting for immigration hearings.
Biden took a novel approach to justify his legal authority to make such a move.
The Democrat said that he acted unilaterally because Republicans have refused to get on board with his immigration policies. This, he boldly claimed, meant he only had one choice, “to act on my own, do as much as I can on my own to try to change the atmosphere.”
The Times was given a label for the parole pathway, “CBP One.”
For migrants to join the parole pathway, they must be recommended by a government-approved nonprofit agency that applied on their behalf. Further, the tally of 109,000 for the last eight months of 2022 was not included in the 1.3 million Biden’s DHS welcomed during the fiscal year.
For the record, a 1986 law bans companies from hiring illegal workers. This means little to the current White House, which is determined to build its voting base by bringing every immigrant possible into the U.S. The costs to states and taxpayers do not matter in the slightest.
