BIA Says Cuban Parolee Is Not Eligible to Adjust Status


Where the Cuban respondent was paroled into the United States on August 25, 1980, as part of the Mariel Boatlift with an Arrival/Departure Record (Form I-94) stamped “Cuban/Haitian Entrant (Status Pending)” indicating that the purpose of his parole was for “Cuban Asylum,” the BIA held in a precedent decision issued today that the respondent was ineligible to adjust his status under INA §209, because he did not establish that he was either admitted as a “refugee” within the meaning of INA §207 or granted asylum under INA §208.
