DEL RIO, Texas — Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told reporters Monday that his agency is stepping up the number of daily flights to remove Haitian migrants from the makeshift camp along the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The secretary stressed that irregular migration is not safe and will not be tolerated.
“We are very concerned that Haitians who are taking this irregular migration path are receiving false information that the border is open, or that temporary protected status is available,” Secretary Mayorkas told reporters. “That is false information, irregular migration poses a certain serious security risk to the migrants themselves trying to enter the United States illegally is not worth the tragedy, the money or the effort.”
