A “surge” of 400 Border Patrol agents will be shipped off Del Rio, Texas in a bid to restore order, the US Department of Homeland Security said, as the quantity of Haitian migrants gathering under a scaffold swelled to 14,000.
The agents are relied upon to show up between the following 24 to 48 hours, the agency said in a news proclamation.
“On the off chance that extra staff is required, more will be sent,” DHS said. “The Del Rio Port of Entry has briefly shut, and traffic is being re-steered from Del Rio to Eagle Pass to all the more successfully oversee assets and guarantee continuous progression of trade and travel.”
The agency likewise said they were migrating people from Del Rio to “other preparing areas” ahead of deportation, and that 2,000 migrants were moved yesterday.
The Biden organization has vowed to quickly increase the deportation of Haitians starting on Sunday — with five to eight flights a day arranged.
“DHS will tie down extra transportation to speed up the speed and increment the limit of evacuation flights to Haiti and different objections in the side of the equator inside the following 72 hours,” Marsha Espinosa, a representative for the department told.
