Biden Administration’s Secret Airport List for Migrants Revealed

It has taken nearly a year, but the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) finally released documents requested by the House Committee on Homeland Security. Of course, a subpoena had to be issued first, but the information has been received. And according to committee members, it is damning. The media has been reporting on illegal migrants being flown to different cities across the nation, and the records retrieved identified more than 50 airport locations where over 400,000 aliens have been transported.

These flights were part of the Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan, and Venezuelan (CNHV) mass-parole program launched in January 2023, and there is debate over whether it is even legal. According to the committee, as of mid-October 2023, “there were 1.6 million inadmissible aliens awaiting travel authorizations through the CHNV program.” Per the documents, DHS admits that the migrants do not have a legal basis to enter the country: “All individuals paroled into the United States are, by definition, inadmissible, including those paroled under the CHNV Processes.”

Since the program began, 404,000 inadmissible aliens have been paroled into the country via and transported from more than 50 airports. Florida has received the most migrants, with Miami being the top destination, receiving 91,821 individuals. In all, the Sunshine State had 161,562, nearly half of the total. Here are the top ten airport locations used for the program to transport illegal immigrants into the country from January to August 2023:

  1. Miami, FL: 91,821
  2. Fort Lauderdale, FL: 60,461
  3. New York City, NY: 14,827
  4. Houston, TX: 7,923
  5. Orlando, FL: 6,043
  6. Los Angeles, CA: 3,271
  7. Tampa, FL: 3,237
  8. Dallas, TX: 2,256
  9. San Francisco, CA: 2,052
  10. Atlanta, GA: 1,796

The country’s capital was number 12 on the list with 1,472.

The Biden administration claims CHNV is a legal use of the executive parole program. To be approved, migrants are supposed to prove they have a financial supporter so that they won’t be dependent on US aid. The Washington Times, however, reported that those financial certificates are being sold for $5,000 in Central America. The program allows illegal immigrants to remain in the country for two years and obtain work permits.

Critics of the program say this is a way to hide the true number of illegals crossing the border. Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security Mark E. Green (R-TN), said:

“These documents expose the egregious lengths Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas will go to ensure inadmissible aliens reach every corner of the country, from Orlando and Atlanta to Las Vegas and San Francisco. Secretary Mayorkas’ CHNV parole program is an unlawful sleight of hand used to hide the worsening border crisis from the American people. Implementing a program that allows otherwise inadmissible aliens to fly directly into the U.S. – not for significant public benefit or urgent humanitarian reasons as the Immigration and Nationality Act mandates – has been proven an impeachable offense.”

Immigration in the Polls

A new Gallup poll released on April 30 showed that immigration was the top concern for Americans for the third month in a row. Although migrants illegally crossing into the US has topped Gallup’s most important problems four times since 2000, this year is the first time it has remained the top issue for multiple successive moths. According to the survey, “While immigration has not ranked as the top problem often in Gallup’s monthly trend, it stands alone as the most politically polarizing issues in the past 25 years of Gallup’s measurements.”

With illegal immigration at the top of the list of concerns for Americans, President Joe Biden’s approval rating keeps slipping. In an exclusive Newsweek poll from March, 38% of respondents were in favor of the southern border wall while 34% were against it. And a February PBS/NPR/Marist survey found that 41% of poll takers said they trusted the Republican party to manage immigration more effectively. Only 29% believed the Democrats could do the job.

By the Numbers

In February, Border Patrol recorded 189,922 encounters along the southern border. Agents also conducted 434 rescues that month – the highest monthly rescues total since October. Also in February, CBP processed more than 42,100 migrants using the CBP One app, which accounted for 86% of noncitizens processed at ports of entry.

As for the CHNV Parole Processes, CBP explained: “Through the end of February 2024, over 386,000 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans arrived lawfully and were granted parole under the parole processes. Specifically, 81,000 Cubans, 156,000 Haitians, 71,000 Nicaraguans, and 97,000 Venezuelans were vetted and authorized for travel; and 79,000 Cubans, 151,000 Haitians, 64,000 Nicaraguans, and 91,000 Venezuelans arrived lawfully and were granted parole.”

Notable Quotes

In an April telephone interview with Time magazine, former President Donald Trump talked about the border crisis problem. “These are people that aren’t legally in our country,” he argued. “This is an invasion of our country. An invasion like probably no country has seen before.” He then explained he would be fine bringing in extra muscle if needed to stem the flood of migrants:

“If I thought things were getting out of control, I would have no problem using the military. We have to have safety in our country. We have to have law and order in our country. And whichever gets us there, but I think the National Guard will do the job.”
