Cuban Americans

256,000 encounters

Fox News

In February, the influx of undocumented individuals into the country surged, with the Department of Homeland Security reporting over 256,000 encounters with unauthorized migrants during that month, as detailed by The Washington Times.

Border Patrol arrests

“Nearly 190,000 of the encounters came at the southern border, and about 141,000 of those were Border Patrol arrests. Among them were 11 more arrests of migrants whose identities were found on the government’s terrorism watchlist,” the report said.

Unauthorized migrants

Fox News

“The rest of the southern border encounters were unauthorized migrants showing up at crossings and demanding to be let in. More than 42,000 of those sought entry under a legally iffy ‘parole’ program created by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to try to take pressure off Border Patrol agents,” it said.

Parole program

Fox News

“Under that program, known as the CBPOne App, migrants can schedule their arrivals at the border and be allowed in. The government also runs another parole program that allows up to 30,000 migrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to preschedule arrivals at airports inside the U.S.,” it said.

Border Protection

Fox News

Customs and Border Protection said that the high number of encounters is because the program is working as intended and “noncitizens will follow an orderly process when one is available.”
