DHS to allow some Afghans to enter US without formal visas

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is using his parole authority to allow some Afghan evacuees to enter the United States while they wait for their applications to be processed, a senior administration official told reporters on Tuesday.

The official said that, in some instances, Mayorkas is using his parole authority to allow Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants who are in the pipeline but who haven’t completed the application process to potentially be given parole.

“The Secretary of Homeland Security is using his parole authority, including his ability to impose particular conditions of parole on those arriving, to ensure that those who are reaching here are doing so obviously with the appropriate legal status," the official said.
