Recent data from the Center for Immigration Studies suggests that about 90% of the roughly 386,000 illegal immigrants that have been flown into the United States under the Biden administration’s parole program for illegal immigrants from certain countries have been admitted to the country at ports of entry in Florida and Texas.

The data provided by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that a large majority of the 386,000 illegal immigrants documented as part of the Biden administration’s parole program have scheduled appointments to be arrested, to apply for asylum in the United States, and to be granted entrance to the country in Florida and Texas. Both states have strongly opposed the Biden administration’s border policies and have taken measures to reduce illegal immigration.

The Center for Immigration Studies explained that the data obtained from U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows that “initial landings” of illegal immigrants have been heavily concentrated in Florida and Texas; however, the “final destinations” of the illegal immigrants may be other states. The Post Millennial reported that both Florida and Texas have transported large numbers of illegal immigrants to other states.

“This early evidence suggests that a great many of these inadmissible alien passengers, probably a majority, initially land at international airports in Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’s Florida,” the Center for Immigration Studies stated. “In fact, Florida turns out to be the top landing and U.S. customs processing zone for this direct-flights parole-and-release program, tallying at nearly 326,000 of the initial arrivals from inception through February.”

The Biden administration’s program referenced in the Center for Immigration Studies’ data allows as many as “30,000 individuals” each month from Haiti, Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua to enter the United States.

The Post Millennial reported that the exact number of illegal immigrants being flown into the United States by the Biden administration to other locations has not yet been released; however, the data provided by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that approximately 326,000 have been flown to Miami, Florida, while 22,000 have been flown to Houston, Texas.

“Prior to program implementation in 2023, the [Miami] field office logged 4,607 customs officer encounters of the nine nationalities in FY 2021 and 3,508 in FY 2022,” the Center for Immigration Studies noted. “But from that 3,508 in fiscal 2022, the office logged a hair-raising spike to 186,722 in FY 2023 for the nine nationalities, most of them Cubans, Haitians, Venezuelans, and Nicaraguans.”
