Hundreds of Haitian migrants are recently at the border crossing at Del Rio in Texas will be returned to their country by the Biden administration.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced this Saturday, saying it would “accelerate” efforts to remove the migrants.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection will within 24 to 48 hours deploy 400 additional agents to the Del Rio sector, the area which has been the centre of the migrant surge, DHS said in a statement.
“The Biden Administration has reiterated that our borders are not open, and people should not make the dangerous journey.
“Individuals and families are subject to border restrictions, including expulsion,” DHS said.
The agency announced steps it was taking to handle the surge of Haitian migrants at the Texas border with Mexico, including speeding up their removal and return to Haiti.
“DHS will secure additional transportation to accelerate the pace and increase the capacity of removal flights to Haiti and other destinations in the hemisphere within the next 72 hours,” DHS said.
The Del Rio port of entry has been temporarily closed after thousands of people sought to enter the United States in that area this week.
