US to send migrants from Haiti to homeland - report

The United States government is planning to send a "massive" number of migrants from Haiti that are trying to enter the country via Texas to their homeland, the Associated Press reported.

The administration decided to proceed with the move after the border faced an overflow of migrants throughout this week, a source familiar with the matter said.

The report comes after Florida asked Washington to start settling migrants in territories other than the Sunshine State. Earlier in the day, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) temporarily closed Del Rio Port of Entry to "respond to urgent safety and security needs presented by an influx of migrants."
