(Congress Report) – A program from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that allows illegal aliens to enter the country who would otherwise be deported isn’t quite the success that President Joe Biden and the ilk in his administration were hoping it would be, according to some former senior officials who recently conducted an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Biden announced back on Jan. 5 the expansion of Title 42, which is an order from Trump’s time in the Oval Office that was used to expel certain illegals to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, including folks from Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Haiti. The plan made an allowance for 30,000 illegals from those countries to come into the United States by parole authority, along with permitting illegals to stay in the country for two years on the condition that they have a sponsor, and permits illegals that would otherwise be deported under Title 42 to use CBP One, a mobile application, to schedule an appointment at a port of entry located close to the country.
“These expanded border enforcement measures are working,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas went on to say in a statement Wednesday. “It is incomprehensible that some states who stand to benefit from these highly effective enforcement measures are seeking to block them and cause more irregular migration at our southern border.”
Ken Cuccinelli, the former Deputy DHS Secretary, referred to the statement from Mayorkas as “bullsh**,” during a phone call with the DCNF. I think it’s safe to say that Cuccinelli has some strong feelings about how Biden is handling this situation.
“Bullshit, numbers are not down,” Cuccinelli argued. “They’re at record levels. Even if they went down from those record levels in the absence of the previous month record, it’s still the record level. They’re literally importing an entire State of the United States of America every couple of months worth of people. We can’t absorb this. And they know that and that tells you that their intent is to undermine what anybody grew up thinking of as America.”
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency has recorded a shocking 2.3 million encounters with illegal aliens during the fiscal year 2022, with more than 250,000 of these coming during the month of December, which makes it the highest month on record. This is not something to be proud of. The sheer number of illegals coming into the county has caused increases in crime, overburdened the taxpayers, and is causing all kinds of havoc for communities located along the border.
“They’re using parole. Much like the Obama administration did DACA. It’s creating a loophole you can drive a truck through. What security comes from this? He can’t identify any security that comes from this. He can’t identify any reducing the flow of illegals coming to the country that he won’t admit illegals. Yeah, right. He’s facilitating it. The guy is an official government human trafficker,” Cuccinelli went on to say.
“Retired Deputy Patrol Agent in Charge of the El Paso Station Clay Thomas echoed that Mayorkas isn’t providing the full picture of what’s happening at the southern border,” the report continued.
“Everything’s not going great,” Thomas remarked. “This has just been implemented. There’s no metric to determine whether it’s a success or not. In order to determine success on something you have to give it time…a period of time to show a metric of success. I would assume that that would be no less than three to six months to be able to look and see how it’s working to problem solve it.”
“To call this a success. This early on after something is just being implemented is unreasonable,” Thomas commented.
More than 7,500 Cubans, Nicaraguans, and Haitians have thus far been approved through this parole program, as per new information from CNN.
New: More than 7,500 migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua, and Haiti have been approved to come to the United States under a program set up by the Biden admin, according to data I obtained. To qualify, migrants have to have a sponsor in the US and undergo screening and vetting.

Mark Morgan, the former acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner has stated that he thinks the process to bring in these individuals, who would otherwise be expelled is illegal.
“They are legalizing otherwise illegal activity and then claiming victory. So as the numbers of those illegally entering in between the ports of entry significantly recede, watch how the numbers at our ports of entry increase in kind! It’s an unlawful, perverse shell game, which serves to mask the crisis rather than address it in any meaningful way. They haven’t put forth a single policy to deter or disincentivize the flow nor to insert integrity back into a broken system through ending of catch and release. They simply transferred their massive release strategy to the ports of entry,” Morgan continued.
The article then revealed that Homeland Security has “secretly” been using CBP One to allow illegals from more than 100 nationalities into the nation for months, Todd Bensman, a Senior National Security Fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies said.
“It was entirely predicted and predictable that they would do this and it’s an illusion because for every immigrant that did not cross illegally, one got in through this program anyway. So for however many they feel like there would do reducing just as many if not more, are actually being crossed in under this legally questionable new alternative immigration admission system that they’ve created,” Bensman concluded.
