Fox news and the Federalist. A little spin, do you think? Like the false story that a wall would stop immigration?

Before Biden, Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott granted 5 or 6 illegal alien pardons per year, all for very specific reasons approved only after extensive case-by-case investigation and as justified by humanitarian reasons or significant benefit to the public at large. DHS closely monitored those paroles and detained or deported them as soon as it was appropriate

Biden's administration approved 31,977 such paroles in just the last two months. Those and another 38,000 (and rapidly climbing) mostly unvetted illegal aliens (from a hundred nations) get free work permits were (and are still being) released under their own recognizance and ultimately blanket amnesty.

Yet your current DHS chief, your president, and your complicit media are insisting that our borders are secure, and you believe them and support this.

isobars, I'm still waiting for the link that outlines what you're talking about. Also, I think we all know that there are still rabid Trump supporters in the US Border Control, and of course, they are desperately trying to cast a negative picture of President Biden and our present circumstances at the border. As the news focus moves away from what you want to be a continuing frantic situation at the border, I see your comments as a rather feeble attempt to keep it alive.

Lastly, I noticed that you're referring to the president as "your president". Are you one of the losers that can't accept the truth about the 2020 election?

Congress first legislated the use of parole with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 in order to allow the government to temporarily bring people into the United States “for emergent reasons or for reasons deemed strictly in the public interest.” Over the past 70 years, parole has been used repeatedly by presidents of both parties—with bipartisan support—to bring a range of groups and individuals into the country. It was first used in 1956, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower paroled in tens of thousands of Hungarians after the country’s failed revolution. Past presidents similarly used parole authority in 1962 to bring in Chinese refugees who had fled to Hong Kong; for Cuban refugees in the 1960s and beyond, reaching a high-water mark with the Mariel boatlift in 1980; and for Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Laotians in the 1970s following the Vietnam War.

More recently, parole has generally fallen into individual and categorical grants. On the individual end, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) details the process for humanitarian parole to allow people into the United States, something being used right now for Afghan nationals. USCIS also allows people on temporary statuses such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to apply for advance parole so they can travel outside the country and be allowed back in once they return.

Administrations have also created programmatic grants of parole through efforts such as the military parole in place program, started in 2013; the Haitian Family Reunification Parole program and the Central American Minors Refugee and Parole program, started in 2014; and the Filipino World War II Veterans Parole program, started in 2016.

Once paroled into the country, individuals can apply for a work permit on a case-by-case basis. And while parole itself would not offer an independent pathway to a green card or citizenship, it would allow some people who should otherwise already be able to adjust to permanent status and get a green card to do so. Section 245(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act requires that a person be either admitted—that is, enter the country lawfully—or paroled to be able to adjust to status. For undocumented immigrants living in the United States who entered without inspection and have an immediate relative who is a citizen, parole would satisfy that existing prerequisite so they can apply for and receive a green card, rather than create a new pathway to permanent status. And if Congress were to make an additional change to parole, such as reinstating Section 245(i), an even wider category of people who should already be eligible for green cards—either because of family relationships or employment—would be able to adjust to permanent residency. The Center for American Progress estimates that 1.5 million undocumented immigrants who would be eligible for a January 1, 2011, parole could benefit from this wider change out of an estimated 2.3 million people who would benefit from reinstating Section 245(i).
