World relief affirms new Biden administration proposal

Biden cabinet expands legal pathways with parole strategy
announcing that it is surging additional resources to the border and the region,
scaling up its anti-smuggling operations, and expanding coordination and support for border cities and non-governmental organizations.
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) responded to the announcement from President Biden
today expanding Title 42 and humanitarian parole programs for migrants from Nicaragua, Cuba, and Haiti.
By Associated Press and Spectrum News Staff Washington, D.C. In January 2023, the Biden administration initiated a series of measures to improve border security,
reduce irregular migration, and promote safe and orderly pathways for people to come to the United States.
One new pathway—a series of processes utilizing the statutory authority to “parole” certain people seeking entry into the United States—builds upon measures the Biden cabinet assembled in 2022 to address the increasing numbers of Ukrainian and Venezuelan nationals appearing at the U.S.-Mexico border.
There should be little question that the CHNV parole processes are legal. Section 212(d)(5)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act grants the U.S secretary of homeland security the discretionary authority to “parole into the United States temporarily under such conditions as he may prescribe only on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit any [noncitizen] applying for entry to the United States.”
