More Haitian Migrants Making Their Way to US-Mexico Border

Up to 4,000 more migrants from Haiti are reportedly making their way from Central America towards the US-Mexico border after the Biden administration released at least 12,000 asylum seekers from the Caribbean nation into the United States.

It’s not known what ultimately brought the refugees to the encampment under a bridge in Del Rio this month, but it’s likely trudging across the Rio Grande and along the river’s banks was not the most taxing part of their 11-year odyssey.

Human rights activists are condemning images of US border agents, mounted on horseback, trying to head off migrants almost as if they’re herding cattle. The US special envoy to Haiti, Daniel Foote, has now resigned to protest the Biden administration’s “inhumane” effort to send them back to Haiti.
