LGBT migrants receiving ‘humanitarian parole’ at California port of entry

08/25/2022 | WRBL

SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — About 120 asylum-seekers who are members of the LGBT community are being allowed into the U.S. on a daily basis. Enrique Lucero, the director of the Migrant Affairs Office in Tijuana, said they are crossing the border at PedWest, one of two pedestrian crossings at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. “The migrants must show they have a disability, health issues or have been victims of discrimination or persecution back home,” said Lucero. “This is humanitarian parole.” But this development is generating uncertainty and unrealistic expectations in shelters throughout Tijuana, Lucero said.
