DHS Press Release: “On October 12, 2022, DHS announced a new process for Venezuelan nationals that enhances the security of our border and provides a lawful means for eligible Venezuelans to come to the United States. Today, less than a week after the portal went live, DHS reports that the first four Venezuelan nationals arrived at U.S. airports in a safe, orderly, and lawful manner. While it is still in its early days, this process has already reduced irregular entries of Venezuelans at our border by more than 85%, showing that when there is a lawful and orderly way, people will be less inclined to put lives in hands of smugglers.”
