President Joe Biden’s deputies are pulling unvetted Afghans through an emergency side door in the nation’s immigration laws — and are now asking Congress to let the tens of thousands of economic migrants get billions of dollars in American-funded welfare programs.
Few of the Afghan migrants are eligible for “Special Immigrant Visas” (SIVs) that were created for Afghans who fought alongside the United States, such as interpreters.
So Biden’s officials have declared the many non-SIV migrants are “vulnerable” migrants and are letting them in through the “parole” side door. That door was created by Congress for rare problems, such as a sick crewman on a foreign fishing ship.
Now the parole door is being used to import a wide variety of Afghans, many of whom face little danger from the Taliban, and some of whom forced their way past U.S. soldiers to get on U.S. aircraft in Kabul.
