Haitian Migrant Who Entered U.S. Under Biden Parole Program Charged With Rape Of Teenage Girl: Report

A 26-year-old Haitian man, who reportedly entered the U.S. under the Biden administration’s migrant parole program, was charged Thursday with raping a 15-year-old girl at a Massachusetts hotel that is being used as a migrant shelter.

Cory Alvarez was arraigned on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to aggravated rape of a child. Sources told Fox News that the Haitian man flew to John F. Kennedy International Airport last June and was sponsored by someone in New Jersey as part of President Joe Biden’s parole program, which has allowed over one million migrants to come to the U.S. from countries such as Haiti, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Ukraine, and Afghanistan.

Police responded to a report of a sexual assault on Wednesday evening at the Comfort Inn in Rockland, Massachusetts, which is currently being used as part of a state and federal program to house migrant families, Boston 25 reported.

The teenage girl, who is also a Haitian, told police through an interpreter that she went to Alvarez’s room so he could help her with her tablet before he forced himself on her.

“I asked him to leave me alone, but he didn’t stop,” the 15-year-old girl told authorities.

Alvarez is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for March 22, according to Boston 25. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has also placed an immigration detainer on Alvarez.

Last week, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit from more than 20 Republican-led states challenging the Biden administration’s migrant parole program. The states argued that the migrant program forced them to spend millions of dollars on health care, education, and public safety, but U.S. District Judge Drew B. Tipton said the states did not show they had suffered any financial harm because of the program, the Associated Press reported.

Tipton clarified, however, that “In reaching this conclusion, the Court does not address the lawfulness of the Program.”


As Haiti descends into chaos and gangs fight for control of the country, many are concerned about more Haitians fleeing the country and attempting to get into the U.S. Earlier this week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ordered National Guard troops and state law enforcement agencies to secure the state’s coast and prevent Haitians from landing boats and entering the country illegally.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration is considering using Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, which is roughly 200 miles from Haiti, as a processing center for the anticipated influx of Haitian migrants.

“We are clear-eyed that economic, political, and security instability are key drivers for migrants around the world. We are closely monitoring the situation and the routes frequently used by migrants to reach our borders and at this time, irregular migration flows through the Caribbean remain low,” a National Security Council spokesperson told CNN.
