Refugee-Parolee Law and Legal Definition

Refugee-parolees are individuals who are eligible for provisional admittance to the United States between February 1970 and April 1980. In other words, refugee-parolee is a qualified applicant for conditional entry. However, the application of refugee-parolee for admission to the United States could not be accepted because of insufficient numbers of seventh preference visas. As a consequence, these individuals entered the United States as parolees under the parole authority granted by the Attorney General.
