New rules mean 600,000 migrants per year will be eligible for visas

 January 30, 2023

In an article published this past weekend, Breitbart contributor Neil Munro described an operation that smuggled 100,000 migrants into the United States between May and December of last year, with many more expected to arrive.

Yet rather than being headed by a Mexican cartel, Munro explained that the influx was overseen by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. 

Hundreds of thousands of migrants will be granted legal status

The author cited a recent New York Times report which covered a new visa policy that is being extended to citizens of Cuba, Nicaragua, Haiti, and Venezuela.

The new rule offers "two-year humanitarian parole to the United States, including the ability to apply for work authorization immediately," with some 360,000 migrants from the aforementioned countries being eligible to apply over the next year.

What's more, the Times reported that yet another new policy was implemented on January 12 which involves a smart phone application called CBP One.

While the previous policy allowed 20,000 individuals to parole into the United States after having first been recommended by a government-approved non-profit agency, that requirement has now been dropped.

GOP lawsuit says changes are illegal

Under the revised rules, migrants can use CBP One to make an appointment at a specific point of entry where they will be interviewed by a Customs and Border Protection agent.

The change has not gone unnoticed by a coalition of 20 Republican-led states who have filed a lawsuit in opposition to it.

Their suit contends that the change represents "a new visa program that allows hundreds of thousands of aliens to enter the United States who otherwise have no basis for doing so."

Indeed, Munro stressed that under current law, "Congress caps legal immigration at about 1 million people per year" while another 800,000 temporary workers can be admitted annually.

Deportations falls as illegal border crossings explode

As the author pointed out, the 600,000 person inflow "far exceeds the cap set by Congress." He went on to note that this figure comes on top of the estimated 2 million illegal migrants that entered the country in fiscal year 2022.

Also of concern is a Fox News report from December which detailed deportations carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last year were well below Trump-era levels.

Just 72,177 illegal aliens were deported in fiscal year 2022, a far cry from the 185,884 who were removed in fiscal year 2020.

This comes even as a 2023 report published by the Institute for Families Studies found that American men have a lower labor force participation rate "than at any time in U.S. history."
