Thanks to an investigation and report by the U.S. House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee, a list of major airports has been revealed that are the destination for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who break into the country, are released and then fly directly into American communities.

Florida airports top the list with Miami and Fort Lauderdale receiving more than 150,000 arrivals between January and August of last year. New York was third and Houston fourth. Then on the list: Atlanta.

“The list had been a guarded secret,” wrote The Washington Times investigative reporter Stephen Dinan, “but the committee pried them loose at the point of a subpoena.”

“These documents expose the egregious lengths (Homeland Security) Secretary Mayorkas will go to ensure inadmissible aliens reach every corner of the country, from Orlando and Atlanta to Las Vegas and San Francisco,” said Rep. Mark Green, chairman of the committee. In fact, more than 400,000 unauthorized migrants have been welcomed into the U.S. through what the government calls its Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, Venezuela program, or CHNV.

According to committee documents, Mayorkas created the program after watching illegal immigrants from those nations swarm through our open Southern border in late 2022. He created a program using his “parole” power to let them pre-apply for entry and fly directly into airports, despite lacking a visa to do so.

The result: Redirect the illegal flow of unvetted illegal immigrants from the border to the interior. Parole lasts for two years, though the Biden administration makes no effort to allow migrants to apply to renew their status.

Those who come are supposed to have proved that they have a financial supporter and won’t end up depending on government assistance, though The Washington Times reports that people are selling those financial certifications for $5,000 in Central America, and there have been some high-profile cases of parolees who were living in government-run shelters.

The CHNV program allows the migrants to put down roots, such as obtaining work permits and some taxpayer benefits, making them difficult to deport if a future administration were to take a stricter approach to immigration enforcement.

Mayorkas claims those involved have “arrived lawfully.” Congressman Green says the CHNV program violates the law, which reserves parole for rare instances where it’s deemed a “significant” public benefit to the U.S. or where there is an “urgent” humanitarian reason to admit someone.

“Secretary Mayorkas’ CHNV parole program is an unlawful sleight of hand used to hide the worsening border crisis from the American people,” The Washington Times quotes the Tennessee Republican.

According to the committee’s list, Atlanta in 2023 has already received 1,796 unvetted illegal immigrants who could be anyone ranging from hardened criminals to disease carriers. And since the flights were secret, and often undetected, far more could have arrived and melted into metro Atlanta.
