Haitian Man Accused of Rape Allegedly Entered U.S. Through Biden’s Parole Program

In a shocking incident, a Haitian man was arrested for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old disabled girl in a Massachusetts migrant shelter. The man, 26-year-old Cory B. Alvarez, allegedly arrived in the United States through President Joe Biden’s ‘humanitarian parole’ program. This information came to light through a tweet by Fox News reporter Bill Melugin, who cited Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sources.

The controversial parole program, initiated by the Biden administration, has allowed up to 30,000 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans to fly into the U.S. after supposedly being vetted and having a sponsor in the country. These immigrants typically receive two-year “humanitarian parole” grants, which permit them to apply for work authorization and live in the U.S.

Alvarez reportedly flew directly from Haiti to JFK airport in New York City in June 2023, with a two-year parole grant. ICE has since filed a detainer on Alvarez with local authorities. The suspect had a sponsor listed in New Jersey as part of his parole.

Critics have questioned the effectiveness of the parole program, which the Biden administration considers a “lawful pathway” for immigrants. According to CBP data, at least 138,000 Haitians have been brought to the U.S. since the start of the Biden administration’s program in January 2023. Despite the intention to decrease illegal border crossings, critics argue that the program could potentially allow dangerous individuals to enter the U.S.

The incident comes amidst heightened scrutiny of President Biden’s immigration policies, with critics alleging that these policies are contributing to an increase in illegal immigration and associated crimes. The case of Alvarez is just one example, they claim, of how these policies can have harmful consequences.
