The White House has announced the launch of a new parole program to provide support for illegal aliens who are married to U.S. citizens. This initiative seeks to bypass immigration policies by offering benefits typically reserved for legal immigrants, Texas Scorecard reported:

“Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement today labeling the policy as illegal and condemning the Biden administration’s actions.

“’President Biden’s mass amnesty announcement is blatantly illegal and is a desperate pandering for votes in his failing reelection bid,’ Abbott said in a Tuesday press release. ‘President Biden’s amnesty proposal, just like President Obama’s DAPA and DACA proposals, will be stricken down by the courts for a simple reason: it is Congress, not the President, that has the authority to make or change immigration laws.’

“Abbott also explained that ‘Rather than solving the border crisis he caused, President Biden’s mass amnesty will be another magnet to attract migrants to flood across our border illegally. President Biden needs to stop rewriting immigration law and start enforcing it.’

“The governor described the new policy as ‘gaslighting’ the American people by initially issuing an ineffective executive order pretending to secure the border, then offering amnesty to over half a million illegal aliens already in the country who are married to U.S. citizens.”
