A concerning new report contradicts recent claims by the Biden administration that they had been deporting the Haitian migrants who invaded Texas – suggesting instead that these illegals are being freed directly into the United States.
“Haitians have been freed on a ‘very, very large scale’ in recent days, according to one U.S. official who put the figure in the thousands,” The Associated Press reported. “The official, with direct knowledge of operations who was not authorized to discuss the matter Tuesday and thus spoke on condition of anonymity.”
The report noted that the latest development from Democrat President Joe Biden’s border crisis is “undercutting the Biden administration’s public statements that the thousands in the camp faced immediate expulsion.”
The report said that many have been released into the U.S. with notices to appear at an immigration office within the next two months. These notices, however, are often simply ignored by illegal immigrants.
The Washington Post reported that Department of Justice records approximate that 44% of migrants that were not in custody failed to show up for court proceedings.
“A second U.S. official, also with direct knowledge and speaking on the condition of anonymity, said large numbers of Haitians were being processed under immigration laws and not being placed on expulsion flights to Haiti that started Sunday,” The AP’s report said, later adding, “The releases in the U.S. were occurring despite the signaling of a massive effort to expel Haitians on flights to Haiti under pandemic-related authority that denies migrants an opportunity to seek asylum.”
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed claim on Monday that the U.S. Border was not open, saying, “If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned, your journey will not succeed, and you will be endangering your life and your family’s life.”
Yet, the AP noted that “accounts of wide-scale releases – some observed at the Del Rio bus station by Associated Press journalists” were “at odds with statements a day earlier” by Mayorkas, who had “traveled to Del Rio to promise swift action.”
Rodney Scott, the former highly successful head of U.S. Border Patrol who was forced out by President Biden earlier this year, wrote a letter to Senate leaders with a dire warning about the border situation.
Scott suggested that the president’s disastrous border policies are destroying America’s borders and that bad actors are exploiting the situation.
“The Biden administration’s team at DHS is laser-focused on expediting the flow of migrants into the U.S. and downplaying the significant vulnerability this creates for terrorists, narcotics smugglers, human traffickers, and even hostile nations to gain access to our homeland,” Scott wrote.
“In my professional assessment, the U.S. Border Patrol is rapidly losing the situational awareness required to know who and what is entering our Homeland.”
Scott then issued a dire warning about who is likely exploiting the Biden administration’s weakness on the southern border.
“Low level, unsophisticated and uneducated smugglers are illegally crossing the border and increasingly evading apprehension daily,” Scott warned. “To think that well-resourced terrorist networks, criminal organization, and hostile nations are not doing the same is naive.”
