The Department of Homeland Security’s Family Reunification Task Force has established a parole process for persons who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border as a result of the Trump administration’s Zero-Tolerance Policy and other similar Trump administration practices. Parents and children who were deported as a result of the Zero-Tolerance Policy can benefit from humanitarian parole. Some family members of formerly separated persons who remain outside of the United States now also qualify to apply for humanitarian parole through the process. This Community FAQ seeks to educate these families about the application process for humanitarian parole for family members of separated persons who remain outside the United States.
