Officials: Many Haitian migrants are being released in US

Source: Associated Press

DEL RIO, Texas (AP) — Many Haitian migrants camped in a small Texas border town are being released in the United States, two U.S. officials said, undercutting the Biden administration’s public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion.

Haitians have been freed on a “very, very large scale” in recent days, according to one U.S. official who put the figure in the thousands. The official, with direct knowledge of operations who was not authorized to discuss the matter Tuesday and thus spoke on condition of anonymity

Many have been released with notices to appear at an immigration office within 60 days, an outcome that requires less processing time from Border Patrol agents than ordering an appearance in immigration court and points to the speed at which authorities are moving, the official said.

The Homeland Security Department has been busing Haitians from Del Rio to El Paso, Laredo and Rio Grande Valley along the Texas border, and this week added flights to Tucson, Arizona, the official said. They are processed by the Border Patrol at those locations.

8. Yet my wife still languishes and waits for approval and her interview for a green card

I guess doing things the "legal" way gets you refused entry into the country and separated from your family until the US Government feels you are worthy enough to be reunited with your American husband.

Our immigration system is completely broken.

11. It needs to be made

much easier for immigrants to enter legally. Right now our government basically incentivizes illegal immigration due to how hard it is to come in the right way. I wish you and your wife luck in sorting this out.

9. I can't find any balance between this op and the text/photos of mounted

Border Patrol officers harassing Haitians with a whip and a rope. Color me miffed.

12. There is none. It is a complicated situation, and I don't think many understand how

we got to where we are.

Part of it was when the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that required Biden to revive Trump's "remain in Mexico" immigration policy?

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-supreme-court-requires-biden-revive-trump-era-remain-mexico-immigration-2021-08-24/

A few months ago it was made clear that undocumented people should not come to the border, because they would be sent back.

In addition, there is also misinformation coming from various areas that have motivated these Haitian migrants to make the journey, thinking they would be accepted into the country.

https://www.npr.org/2021/09/21/1039393860/misinformation-that-pushed-haitian-migrants-to-u-s-border-persists-amid-deportat

The issue that has caused immediate concern is the treatment of the undocumented migrants, and that is being investigated now.

Much of the blame for what is happening now lies at the feet of what the trump administration did, and the three SC justices that he got to appoint.

We are paying the price for what happened in 2016, and it will take time to clean it up.

14. In the interest of facts.

It was not a whip. It is a split rein used on the horse’s bridle. I’ve seen no picture showing the use of a rope. If you have, then accept my apologies and point me to that evidence, please.

This situation is bad enough without the media and politicians embellishing the facts. I’ve heard several politicians specifically say the word “whip” and that is simply not accurate. A rein is not a whip. There is another specific item used by cowboys that is a whip.

I make no excuses for whatever the rein was being used for. Just want our side to stick to facts.

Peace.

15. An anonymous "official" says something

Yet AP offers no other proof of the claim. Weird.
