The Government announced that USCIS will be taking over the adjudication of applications for humanitarian parole from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Humanitarian parole is given to individuals who can show a compelling humanitarian need to enter the United States but do not qualify for any visa. These applications considered on a case-by-case basis and are granted very sparingly. The application procedures for humanitarian parole within the Department of Homeland Security will remain the same. It is unknown whether this transfer of authority will lead to more or less favorable adjudications.
