(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – On Monday Alejandro Mayorkas, the Homeland Security Secretary was subpoenaed by House Republicans who are looking into the program that has allowed people from Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba, and Nicaragua to gain entry into the U.S. on a temporary parole basis.
In April the House Homeland Security Committee had looked for several documents related to the “CHNV parole program,” as well as all data about the applicants and communications relating to the creation of the program. The program has been modeled under the Uniting for Ukraine program which has enabled those leaving the war-torn country to gain temporary entry into the U.S.
Under the CHNV parole program, up to 30,000 citizens from the predetermined countries have been allowed to enter the U.S. every month. While looking for more information about the program in April the committee became focused on how this program allowed large numbers of “illegal aliens” to enter the United States every month. They further noted that the DHS had gone beyond the statutory authority that it has been given by Congress in choosing which groups can be admitted into the United States.
In October of last year, the Biden administration stated that Venezuelans would not be allowed to seek asylum by arriving at the country’s border. Title 42, which has since expired, was used for their removal. Instead, Venezuelans were allowed to apply for the parole program so long as they had a financial sponsor within the U.S. In January the program was expanded, with three additional countries being added to the list.
