More than 62,000 Cubans have been approved to remain through November 2023 under the US government's parole program, and more than 60,000 have received parole in that country.
As reported by the US Customs and Border Protection Office in A a report To date, 297,000 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguas and Venezuelans had been granted parole. So far, most of the beneficiaries have been Haitians, with 112,000 cases already approved on US soil.
In September alone, about 5,000 Cubans were allowed to enter, a number higher than 3,500 in August. Despite this increase, Cuba is not the country that benefits most from this program, as Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans have larger numbers of beneficiaries.
The procedure is performed virtually through CBP One and ensures safe and legal entry into US territory if the applicant has a legally and financially responsible sponsor.
According to journalist Mario J. Benton of America TV, Haitians, Mexicans and Venezuelans were the citizens for whom the most assignments were processed through the CBP One program in September, and in all, about 43,000 people benefited that month.
Benton also added that more than 340,000 migrants arrived at the southern border of the United States in September, a situation that is generating pressure on the Biden government.
For his part, the Chargé d'Affaires of the US Embassy in Havana, Benjamin Ziv, in May praised this immigration policy in statements to EFE, claiming that he had no knowledge of plans to change it.
The Biden administration has defended the humanitarian parole program as a safe, orderly and humane way for immigrants to work legally in the United States for two years, after which they can choose to apply for other immigration permits or return to their country of origin.
