Humanitarian parole: US immigration's emergency pass into the country
As President Barack Obama attempts to shore up a creaky federal immigration policy, there's one program that is and could remain largely discretionary: humanitarian parole.

Widely unknown, the government venture allows foreign nationals to enter the country temporarily to attend court proceedings and funerals and deal with medical emergencies.

Last year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection granted 3,054 requests for humanitarian parole. It accepted 6,726 the year before, according to agency spokesman Bill Brooks. Citizenship and Immigration services granted another 353 in 2012, agency spokesman Daniel Cosgrove reported.
