Panic and fury was the overall reaction of many US citizens after thousands of migrants from Haiti were reportedly released into the country recently.
According to local media outlets, these migrants were reportedly camping at a small town on the Texas border which is known as Del Rio. Moreover, a new report was recently released which spoke about how the Biden administration had warned these migrants that they would not be allowed into the country illegally or else they would be sent back immediately.
Despite these rumors, new reports from several media outlets went on to add how these migrants were freed on a very large scale and the numbers account for thousands.
“Haitians are getting freed on a very very large scale and they are being given notices and warnings to appear at immigration offices too within a time span of 60 days, explained an American official from the Associated Press.
Meanwhile, another official from the US spoke to reporters from the AP, adding how the large release of Haitians was getting processed under the country’s immigration laws. In addition, a number of reporters went on to add how they were witnessing the mass releases taking place at bus stations across Del Rio.
While the exact number is still being disputed, both local, as well as state officials, mentioned that it was an alarming figure, around 15,000 to be exact. This prompted America to facilitate numerous flights to send these immigrants back home at the nearest date as they posed an imminent security threat since last Sunday.
In the same way, an inside official confirmed the news, adding how the US plans to carry out as many as 7 flights per day towards Haiti to help get these immigrants out of the country as fast as possible.
On Monday, the country’s Homeland Security Secretary swiftly traveled to Del Rio to take an up-close and personal look at the incident. And that’s where he promised swift action while adding how the US Southern border was not open for all.
