More than 300,000 Cuban parole requests are pending review in the US

According to the CBS television network, information from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shows that since April this year, since Joe Biden opened the “humanitarian parole” policy, more than a million petitions have been received, of which more than 300 are from Cubans, pending review.

According to this report, there are millions of petitions for people from Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Haiti under the humanitarian parole program, which has been in effect since January 6, many of which have not been reviewed. We remember that the authorities have to limit themselves to the number of 30 thousand per month.

US citizens, residents, and other organizations such as churches or non-governmental organizations are eligible to sponsor immigrants to the US legally from these four countries, as long as they agree to support them financially.

Immigrants under the program receive work permits for two years under the right of humanitarian parole. As you know, Cuban expatriates can access permanent residency after a “year and a day” through the Cuban Adjustment Act.

Humanitarian Parole for the United States

Reports indicate that there is a huge and growing accumulation of unresolved requests, for this reason, the organizers recently changed the system so that half the cases are resolved by lottery, as at times 12,000 cases are received per day. So that in three days they have reached the top of 30 thousand.

Under this policy, more than 100,000 immigrants have come to America since January. But there are still many pending cases, for example, they point to more than 380,000 Cuban cases, 580,000 Haitian, 120,000 Venezuelan, and more than 20,000 Nicaraguan cases. All of these are pending resolution, which speaks to the great “bottleneck” that humanitarian parole officers have for the United States.
