The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has apparently failed to monitor tens of thousands of Afghan refugees who were allowed to enter the United States, according to a report by the Texas Scorecard:

“It has been suggested that because DHS has failed to monitor the 77,000 Afghans, it cannot keep track of all other inadmissible aliens on parole in the United States, chiefly those from South American countries.

“‘If the Biden administration has no plan to handle 77,000 Afghan parolees, forget about them having a plan to remove 1.1 million inadmissible aliens paroled in via the CBP One and CHNV mass-parole schemes since last January,’ posted the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Republicans on X.

“Following President Joe Biden’s cataclysmic withdrawal from Afghanistan in late summer of 2021, approximately 97,000 Afghan evacuees were brought into the United States by the federal government as part of Operation Allies Welcome, per the report.

“77,000 were granted humanitarian parole for 2 years under the Immigration and Nationality Act. DHS’ ability to grant humanitarian parole does not equal permanent lawful residence or citizenship.

“However, according to Fox News National Correspondent Bill Melugin, ‘The report finds that DHS has no process or component whatsoever for monitoring parole expiration for the Afghan parolees, or any humanitarian parole recipients in general.'”
