The Biden administration has allowed over 1 million people into the U.S. through immigration parole, using this authority to address humanitarian crises and reduce illegal border crossings.

Republican lawmakers are seeking to restrict this authority, arguing that it has been overused.

Negotiations in Congress are underway, with proposals including numerical caps on parole grants and preventing paroled migrants from seeking asylum.

The Biden administration views the use of parole as part of a balanced approach to immigration, but changes to the parole law could significantly impact its immigration strategy.

“As a result of these efforts, hundreds of thousands of noncitizens have followed lawful pathways and orderly processes instead of crossing illegally between ports of entry,” Department of Homeland Security spokesman Luis Miranda said.

“The fact remains that, for decades, Republican and Democratic Administrations alike have used parole authority on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit,” he said.
