All Haitian migrants removed from under Del Rio bridge

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed during a briefing on Friday that all Haitian migrants were removed from under the Del Rio International Bridge, which connects Texas and Mexico.

In response to violent footage of the treatment of Haitian migrants that has surfaced on the Internet, the Department has launched an investigation, the results of which will be made public, Mayorkas shared.

Of the nearly 15,000 people that have crossed the border, 8,000 have voluntarily decided to return to Mexico. Those who have decided to stay will now face court, which will determine if they are eligible to stay as refugees or must be removed from US soil.
