New reports indicate that thousands of illegal aliens, including many from the island nation of Haiti, are being released right back into the United States after camping out under a massive bridge in Texas, as reported by the New York Post.
Several anonymous government officials told the Associated Press that there has been “a very, very large scale” amount of Haitians who have been released from federal custody and allowed to go freely into the country. Although many of these Haitians are ostensibly going to be processed under the usual immigration laws, it is likely that many of them, as most illegals do, will simply skip their court hearings and disappear into the country’s interior.
This comes after over 15,000 illegals had gathered underneath the Del Rio International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas, where they began camping out in squalid, third-world conditions as they waited for federal immigration authorities to take them into custody.
Despite numerous warnings and desperate pleas for help from state and local officials, the Biden Administration has largely been silent on the latest disastrous surge at the southern border. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited Del Rio on Monday to declare that the border is “not open,” and that anyone who tries to “come to the United States illegally…will be returned.”
This statement is in direct contrast with Joe Biden’s rhetoric on the campaign trail in 2020 and the early days of his presidency, in which he declared that he would open the borders and allow all illegals to come in, with the additional promises of taxpayer-funded benefits for all illegals, such as free healthcare and free education. As a result, there have been record high numbers of illegals pouring across the border not seen in decades, which has led to a decrease in Biden’s approval ratings as the crisis worsens; the immigration crisis, alongside the failed U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, consistently remains the area in which Biden polls the most poorly.
