MCALLEN, Texas — Central and South American immigrants are finding loopholes in order to manipulate the United States immigration system so they can stay. Law enforcement officials from the various agencies that make up the Department of Homeland Security have reached out to Breitbart Texas pointing out the new practices being taught to illegal immigrants by smugglers.
Under the claim of demanding humanitarian parole, individuals who at times have been previously deported are working the system in order to receive a temporary permission to stay, the officials said.
Various law enforcement officials who work in the immigration processing of these individuals claim that more and more groups are arriving at ports of entry, also known as international bridges and demanding the protected status.
The little known phrase is called “Humanitarian Parole” which is different than refugee status. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, a refugee is identified as a person who “unable to or unwilling to return to his or her country of nationality because of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.”
A humanitarian parole, is a measure used by immigration officials to bring someone who is otherwise inadmissible into the United States for a temporary period of time due to a compelling emergency.
While the measure is set to protect individuals fleeing legitimate persecution, various sources within the Department of Homeland Security that spoke with Breitbart Texas confirmed that Central and South American immigrants appear to be coached when dealing with immigration officials.
