More flights carrying Haitian migrants from the United States to their Caribbean homeland continue today.
The ongoing mass expulsion comes in response to a growing humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Over 12,000 migrants, mainly from Haiti, camped under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, after wading across the Rio Grande from Mexico.
Activity at the border has increased significantly in recent years. Last week, a federal judge decided officials could not use Title 42 to deport migrant families from the United States to Mexico. Lawyers serving the Biden administration immediately appealed U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s ruling.
Officials began using public health law Title 42 to stop the migrant flow at the U.S.-Mexico border in March 2020. Attempted border crossings reached a 21-year high this summer. Border agents stopped nearly 200,000 people last month, a significant increase from the 50,684 arrests in 2019.
