Policy Brief: Problems of Privilege, Privacy, and Permanency: The CBP One App and Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan, and Venezuelan Parole

By USCRI January 25, 2023

On January 5, the Department of Homeland Security announced a package of immigration and border enforcement-related measures shortly before President Biden made his first visit of his term to the United States-Mexico border. Among other provisions, DHS confirmed the continued use of Title 42 expulsions; new parole processes for Cubans, Haitians, and Nicaraguans; the continuation of a previously announced parole process for Venezuelans, and a new process for Title 42 exemptions under a mobile application called CBP One.

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) and other organizations remain staunchly opposed to the continued and expanded use of Title 42 expulsions, which rely on shaky public health pretenses to unjustly deny the right to claim asylum under domestic and international law.

This report, however, will discuss additional details and elements of the combined parole processes for Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans, as well as the expanded reliance on the CBP One App to access protections such as Title 42 exemptions. It will conclude with recommendations and considerations for policy makers.
