said officials are worried that Haitians are getting"false information" about migrating to the U.S.More than 10,000 people, predominantly from Haiti, have recently crossed the Rio Grande river and are camping out under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas. The size of the camp has grown tremendously over the past few days, overwhelming border officials and local communities.
Mayorkas visited the bridge on Monday, calling the situation"heartbreaking" and"distinct" from the other large movements of migrants the administration has experienced."We are very concerned the Haitians who are taking this irregular migration path are receiving false information that the border is open or that temporary protected status is available," Mayorkas told reporters at a press conference."I want to make sure that it is known that this is not the way to come to the U.S. That is false information."
The secretary also said it's"tragic" that families are being deceived by smugglers for monetary gain.The Biden administration extended temporary protected status earlier this year for the tens of thousands of Haitians already living in the U.S. But since then, many more migrants have tried to enter the country despite not qualifying for the program. headtopics.com
Mayorkas noted Monday that only individuals living in the U.S. prior to July 29 are eligible for temporary protected status.Haiti has been consumed by crisis in recent months, including a major earthquake last month that left more than 2,000 people dead and the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July. The nation's economy is also in turmoil amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But officials believe many of the migrants arriving in Del Rio have been living in South America after the 2010 earthquake.Mayorkas warned those thinking of making the journey:"If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned."
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday officials are worried that Haitians are getting “false information” about migrating to the U.S. Above, migrants, many of them Haitian, cross the Rio Grande to get food and supplies near the Del Rio-Acuna Port of Entry in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, on September 18, 2021.
