The Biden administration’s new policy to permit migrants that would otherwise be expelled allows for Haitians and Cubans to receive an array of public benefits, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Haitian and Cuban migrants paroled into the U.S. can receive Medicaid, food stamps and cash benefits, according to HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). The new program uses parole authority to allow 30,000 Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, Cubans and Haitians to enter the U.S. on a monthly basis if they have a sponsor.
Migrants of the aforementioned nationalities would otherwise be expelled under Title 42, the Trump-era order used to quickly expel certain migrants who cross into the U.S. illegally. The Biden administration continues to push for Title 42’s end, but Republican states have sued and the courts have been left to make a decision on the order’s fate.
According to NBC Miami, Haitian and Cuban parolees are eligible to receive about $400 a month in financial assistance.
A press release posted on the HHS website announces: [emphasis added]
Are you a Cuban or Haitian individual who has been granted entry into the United States?
You may be eligible for cash assistance, medical assistance, employment preparation, job placement, English language training, and other services offered through the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). You may also be eligible for federal “mainstream” (non-ORR funded) benefits, such as cash assistance through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), health insurance through Medicaid, and food assistance through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This document focuses on the benefits and services that ORR funds. To find out what resettlement benefits and services are available, contact your State Refugee Coordinator: https://www.acf.hhs.gov/orr/grant-funding/key-state-contacts.
HHS also encourages migrants to hurry and sign up for all the U.S. tax-payer-funded benefits:
When should I sign up for ORR benefits/services?
Now. Do not wait. Your benefits and services are only available for a limited time. ORR-funded cash and medical assistance are limited to a maximum of eight months from your date of eligibility. For most employment services and other services aimed at economic self-sufficiency, the eligibility period is five years from the date you became eligible as a Cuban/ Haitian Entrant.
One Florida resident is furious. WATCH:
Yes they get SSI “Eligible for federal “mainstream” (non-ORR funded) benefits, such as CASH ASSISTANCE through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or (TANF), health insurance through Medicaid, and (SNAP). https://t.co/y4IrIDQeso
