“Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today reintroduced the Immigration Parole Reform Act of 2023 to restore integrity to the immigration parole statute after decades of misuse by the executive branch.”
“Immigration parole, first established in 1952, allows the executive branch to temporarily grant individuals entry into the United States on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. ”
As per Breitbart’s report, Biden has been incompetently misusing the delicate immigration procedures and his authorities to capture or set free illegal migrants into America.
“However, several presidential administrations, particularly those of Presidents Obama and Biden, have abused this authority to admit entire categories of individuals in circumvention of congressionally-established pathways to allow foreign nationals to enter the United State.”
Grassley further added:
“Some of these parole programs were created even after Congress repeatedly rejected or failed to consider and enact legislative proposals that would have created an immigration pathway for the group of people covered by the programs.”
Grassley then briefly explained the mechanism of his plan, saying:
“it would, among other changes, clarify that parole may not be granted according to criteria that describe entire categories of potential parolees, and very clearly define what qualifies as an ‘urgent humanitarian reason’ or ‘significant public benefit.’ It would also provide clarity on the timing and extension of immigration parole, among other reforms.”
The legislation was also supported by eight more Senate GOP members including Joni Kay Ernst from Iowa, Michael Shumway Lee from Utah, Katie Elizabeth Britt from Alabama, Thomas Hawley Tuberville from Alabama, James Paul Lankford from Oklahoma, Thomas Bryant Cotton from Arkansas, James David Vance from Ohio, and William Morgan Cassidy from louisiana.
