The Biden Administration has again come under fire, this time from a group of Haitian migrants who the administration plans to deport from Texas.
Around 3,300 people are reported to have been expelled from Del Rio City, a border town in Texas, by authorities over the weekend with hundreds of them arriving back in Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital, over the weekend.
Some 12,000 migrants have set up camp under the Del Rio International Bridge as they wait to be processed, with many of them venting their spleen against the current president’s administration. Johnson Bordes, a 23-year-old who came to the United States with his family after the Haitian earthquake in 2010, said, ”If Biden continues with these deportations then he’s no better than Trump”, according to The Washington Post.
Many Democratic elected officials have urged the administration to halt the deportations citing concerns over the Haitian government’s ability to process such large numbers of people. However, the administration has said it will continue to push forward with the deportations.
This comes after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton slammed President Biden for what he claimed incentivizing the problems currently seen on the southern border. Paxton suggested that Biden should switch back to the border policies implemented by former President Trump which are “known to be proven” to work.
“The Trump Administration was not able to stop this overnight, it was built up. The Biden Administration would need to send a message telling people not to come and then would have to follow through on the actions that they promised. That is what I hoped they would do. We’re going to have more drugs and human trafficking – we’re going to have more problems”
General Ken Patton.
Biden needs to get a grip of the situation or risks another humiliating blow which could be the beginning of the end of his presidency.
