It’s a sad day for America when the current administration disregards the laws put in place by Congress to protect our nation’s security. The recent parole program proposed by President Joe Biden, allowing 360,000 people from Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela, and Nicaragua to enter the United States annually, is a clear violation of federal immigration law and a threat to the safety and well-being of our communities.
Lead by the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, 20 Republican governors, including Arkansas’s Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have filed a complaint in a Victoria, Texas federal court claiming the program violates the criteria established by federal immigration law for allowing individuals into the United States who would otherwise not be eligible for entry, known as paroling.
Federal law allows the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to offer parole on a case-by-case basis, and only for humanitarian reasons or public benefit. The new program unlawfully allows individuals who do not meet that bar to receive the benefit, the states said.
The announcement by the Biden administration was made alongside the expansion of the Title 42 program that would allow people of the same nationalities to be removed quickly.
But the program is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to bypass legal immigration processes and grant amnesty to potentially hundreds of thousands of individuals who have no legal basis to be in the United States.
This is a dangerous and irresponsible move by the current administration. It will not only invite a flood of illegal aliens into our country, but it will also put a strain on our already overwhelmed communities, increase crime and violence in our streets, and worsen the opioid crisis.
Every state in America, especially border states like Texas, is being crushed by the impacts of illegal immigration. The Biden open borders agenda has created a humanitarian crisis that endangers the safety and well-being of American citizens. This unlawful amnesty program will only make this immigration crisis drastically worse.
It’s time for the current administration to put the security and well-being of American citizens first and respect the laws put in place to protect our nation.
We cannot stand idly by as the current administration undermines the rule of law and threaten the security of our communities. We will fight to protect America and defend the rights of legal citizens.
