DHS Fails to Monitor 77,000 Parolees; Can They Handle 1.1M Others?

A recent report by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Inspector General has found that DHS failed to keep track of nearly 80,000 Afghan evacuees who were granted two-year paroles in the United States.

It has been suggested that because DHS has failed to monitor the 77,000 Afghans, it cannot keep track of all other inadmissible aliens on parole in the United States, chiefly those from South American countries.

“If the Biden administration has no plan to handle 77,000 Afghan parolees, forget about them having a plan to remove 1.1 million inadmissible aliens paroled in via the CBP One and CHNV mass-parole schemes since last January,” posted the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Republicans on X.

Following President Joe Biden’s cataclysmic withdrawal from Afghanistan in late summer of 2021, approximately 97,000 Afghan evacuees were brought into the United States by the federal government as part of Operation Allies Welcome, per the report.
