DHS calls Haitian migrant’s alleged rape of disabled teen ‘heinous’

A 26-year-old Haitian national who reportedly entered the U.S. through President Joe Biden’s controversial parole program has been charged with allegedly raping a disabled 15-year-old girl.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) called the alleged crime “heinous” and Fox News reporter Bill Melugin noted that Cory Alvarez “lawfully” flew into New York City directly from Haiti, thanks to the Biden administration’s CHNV program.

Though U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has filed a detainer on Alvarez, “it is CBP & DHS that handle the parole program he came in on, and neither agency has provided a comment to us despite us reaching out to them almost 24 hours ago now,” Melugin reported Friday.

“The Department cannot comment on ongoing criminal proceedings beyond the standard information provided by ICE,” a DHS spokesperson told Fox News in a statement. “That said, the alleged crime is heinous, individuals should be held responsible to the fullest extent under the law.”

“Cory B. Alvarez is accused of the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl at the Comfort Inn on Hingham Street, the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday. He pleaded not guilty to the charge, aggravated rape of a child, and was held by a Hingham District Court judge without bail pending a dangerous hearing, scheduled for on March 22,” NBC Boston reported.

According to Melugin’s post on X, the “CHNV” program – which stands for Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela – allowed Alvarez to fly into New York’s JFK airport in June 2023 with a two-year parole grant.

“The Biden admin’s controversial CHNV parole program allows up to 30,000 Cubans, Haitians, Nicaraguans, and Venezuelans to fly into the U.S. after they’ve supposedly been vetted and have a sponsor in the U.S.,” Melugin wrote. “The recipients typically receive two year “humanitarian parole” grants, which allow them to apply for work authorization and live in the U.S. According to CBP data, at least 138,000 Haitians have been brought to the U.S. since the start of the Biden admin’s program in January 2023.”

“The Biden admin considers this program a ‘lawful pathway’, and the recipients bypass the border entirely, flying over it instead. The program is an effort to cut down on high numbers of illegal crossings at the border,” the Fox News reporter added.

The Massachusetts shelter system is currently at its maximum capacity with 7,500 families and another 800 on a waiting list, according to NBC Boston which noted that “the state’s House approved a bill that, if also approved by the Senate and Gov. Maura Healey, would send $245 million more to the system while capping family stays to nine consecutive months.”

“I am absolutely appalled by the incident that took place in Rockland,” GOP state Rep. David DeCoste, who represents the Rockland area, said. “Above all, my heartfelt sympathies extend to the young girl who has reportedly been subjected to abuse. The Commonwealth has failed this young girl.”

Social media reaction poured into the report that Alvarez was part of the “CHNV” program.
