After demands from the House Republicans, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released the numbers behind the Biden Regime Parole Amnesty. Almost half a million otherwise illegal aliens, with a few minor exceptions, were paroled into the United States in violation of the law in the first quarter of Fiscal Year (FY) 2023. FYs are calculated from October through September, so these numbers would be for October 2022 through December 2022. That is not the beginning of the Parole Amnesty; It started much earlier. By my calculation it began with paroling in Afghan rapists after the fall of Kabul to the Taliban [Don’t Believe The Lies, There Is No “Vetting” of Afghan Refugees, by Federale, Federale Blog, August 26, 2021].
The Parole Amnesty progressed to the Central American Minors (CAM), originally an Obama Amnesty [Biden Regime Amnesty For Illegal Alien Children Opening Up Floodgates, by Federale, Federale Blog, September 14, 2021]. Then to Ukrainians who did not want to fight for their country. The next parole amnesty was for Venezuelans who were the point of the spear of the border zerg rush [The Latest Biden Regime Administrative Amnesty: Venezuelan Zerg Rush, by Federale, Federale Blog, October 15, 2022]. Then previously deported illegal aliens became eligible for parole [The Parole Amnesty Is Being Implemented For Those Previously Deported, by Federale, Federale Blog, November 21, 2022]. As 2023 opened, so did the floodgates: Parole was to be the default replacement for most illegal entrants or those who wanted to enter. Illegal aliens would either be paroled after arrest or through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) [CBP One smart phone application].
The Parole Amnesty was a deliberate policy to replace the public face of the border collapse with a hidden invasion. However, the illegal aliens did not cooperate and as we speak, the border is again in collapse [Over 2,200 Migrants Caught On Video Illegally Crossing Border Near Eagle Pass, Texas, Overnight, Sources Say, by Bill Melugin and Danielle Wallace, Fox News, September 18, 2023].
Worse yet, though, are the numbers being paroled. Almost half a million otherwise illegal aliens were paroled using the various Biden Regime subterfuges.

Note that the 1st Quarter FY was not released until July 2023 and the public was not informed until today. Clearly this is something the Biden Regime wants to hide. And because we have three more FY quarters to report, though numbers for the components other than the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) may be for the first and second quarters. But in any event, the numbers are likely to be similar or higher for each quarter, which calculates to a total of two million illegal aliens likely paroled for FY 2023, assuming close to 500,000 aliens paroled each quarter.
