Twenty states sued the Department of Homeland Security and its leadership Tuesday over a humanitarian parole program the Biden administration hopes will reduce irregular migration from Cuba, Haiti, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, arguing that it violates federal immigration law and an overreach of executive power.
At the heart of the lawsuit is a new parole process set up for Venezuelans, Cubans, Haitians, and Nicaraguans that allows nationals from these countries to apply for humanitarian parole. The migrants can be approved to live and work in the United States as long as they pass medical and background checks, have a financial sponsor in the country, and pay for their airfare. We urge everyone who can to apply as soon as possible. The federal court could place an injunction to stop this parole program until the court reaches a decision--similar to what happened with DACA. If an injunction is issued, they will shut the program down. Apply today at https://www.uscis.gov/CHNV
