House Republicans Side with Democrats to Support Funding for Biden’s Migrant Parole Pipeline

In a surprising move, a group of House Republicans joined Democrats to maintain funding for President Joe Biden’s parole pipeline, which facilitates the transport of hundreds of thousands of migrants into the United States.

On Wednesday, 13 Republicans joined 205 Democrats to block an amendment by Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill, which aimed to defund President Biden’s parole pipeline.

The CHNV program, known as the parole pipeline, allows Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan, and Venezuelan migrants to book their own flights from their home countries after being screened by the federal government. These migrants then fly into American airports to obtain what is termed “humanitarian parole.”

Here are the names of 13 Republicans:

  • Rep. Anthony D’Esposito (R-NY)
  • Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart (R-FL)
  • Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN)
  • Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
  • Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-NY)
  • Rep. Carlos Giménez (R-FL)
  • Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón (R-PR)
  • Rep. Thomas Kean (R-NJ)
  • Rep. Young Kim (R-CA)
  • Rep. Nick LaLota (R-NY)
  • Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY)
  • Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL)
  • Rep. Brandon Williams (R-NY)

Under the CHNV program, President Biden has brought nearly half a million migrants to the U.S. Since last October, nearly two million migrants have been waiting for authorization to fly into the U.S. to secure parole.

“By operating this obviously unlawful mass-parole program, Biden and [DHS Secretary Alejandro] Mayorkas continue to make a mockery of our laws,” Rep. Mark Green (R-TN), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said.

“… [T]he simple fact is that Biden and Mayorkas want to import more inadmissible aliens into the United States because they see political benefit in doing so, not to protect those legitimately persecuted in their home countries,” he added.
