Refugees do not know how to live in a devastated Haiti, without an economy, without social support from the state and without jobs.
Their decision was to leave Haiti and seek their fortune in the United States, but the journey ended in Del Rio, Texas, when an influx of Haitians provoked a worsening border crisis and public pressure forced the Biden administration to send a small number of refugees back while thousands of other illegal immigrants were allowed into the United States.
Haitians deported to Haiti from the U.S. attacked pilots and injured three ICE officers, NBC News reported, citing a source acquainted with internal reports regarding the incident.
"On Tuesday, Sept. 21, some adult migrants caused two separate disruptions on the tarmac after deplaning in Port-au-Prince, Haiti," a DHS spokesperson said in a statement, according to NBC News. "Haitian crowd control officers responded to both incidents and resolved the situations. ICE fully respects the rights of all people to peacefully express their opinions, while continuing to perform its immigration enforcement mission consistent with our priorities, federal law and agency policy."
