Yesterday, immigration attorney Greg Siskand opined that most Afghan humanitarian parole cases would be denied because of a lack of evidence indicating that the applicant/s will be specifically targeted by the country's new government. The program, Siskand states, is "a sham."
URGENT for journalist followers - @uscis is now expected to DENY most Afghan humanitarian parole cases - more than 30K pending - because they are applying standards most applications won't meet. Here's why - 1x— Greg Siskind (@gsiskind) December 3, 2021
Law360 has picked up Siskand's story. AILA is also on this issue and has released a Practice Pointer on USCIS Processing of Humanitarian Parole Applications for Afghan Nationals (AILA Doc. No. 21120304).
