People from Haiti and Cuba who arrive in South Florida by boat are not eligible for the new parole scheme and will be sent home. According to an executive order issued by the Biden administration on January 9th, Cubans and Haitians who enter the country illegally by sea will not be eligible to apply for the recently launched parole program.
They will instead begin the repatriation process, reiterated by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas on Thursday. Families of migrants who successfully entered the United States worry that their loved ones may be deported.

Yarileisy Sierra said, “I’m apprehensive about my brother; he’s in an immigration detention facility, and now there’s an executive order that shouldn’t apply to him. Like many other Cuban refugees, her 32-year-old brother Rolando Corvacho arrived in the Florida Keys in a shabby boat on December 31.
Sierra added, “He came before it was issued, and he risked his life. Mayorkas tweeted that those from Haiti and Cuba who entered the country similarly to Corvacho would be returned and ineligible for parole.
According to immigration lawyer Miguel Inda Romero, “They have to enter legally (to qualify for parole),” which means they require a sponsor and a flight into the United States.
Many former immigrants from Haiti and Cuba, he claimed, may now be stranded. According to Romero, some people who were on the waiting list and making the trip will be impacted, who added that this law caught them in the middle.

Despite not encouraging the sea voyage, a South Florida-based organization that advocates for Haitian migrants said that they shouldn’t be sent back home if someone does it. Because we are aware that everyone has a right to protection and refuge, said Paul Namphy of the Family Action Network movement.
