Biden DHS Sec. Says 12,000 Haitian Migrants Have Been Released Into U.S. ‘Could Be Higher’

The crisis on the southern border continues uninterrupted.

The 17,000 migrants who were living under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas have been moved. About 2,000 of them were sent back to their countries of origin, but as many as 12,000 have been released into the United States.

When asked about this, Biden’s DHS secretary said the number released into the U.S. could be even higher.

So far, approximately 12,400 of the people are having their cases heard by immigration judges, while another 5,000 are being processed by the Department of Homeland Security. Currently, only 3,000 are in detention.

“Approximately, I think it’s about 10,000 or so, 12,000,” Mayorkas told “Fox News Sunday” when asked how many have already been released. He then acknowledged that this number could very well go up as the 5,000 other cases are processed.

“It could be even higher. The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it,” Mayorkas said.

The secretary said the administration “will make determinations whether they will be returned to Haiti based on our public health and public interest authorities.”

This is insanity.

A country without a border is not a country.
