MEXICO CITY—Mexico’s government on Wednesday sent 70 Haitian migrants back to Haiti in what was described as a “voluntary return” flight, by the United States, to thousands of Haitians from a camp on the Mexican border in Del Rio, Texas. A few days after the illegal immigrants were deported.
Mexico’s interior and foreign ministries said in a joint statement that the “first group” of migrants – which included 13 children – had been deported to Port-au-Prince as part of an agreement between Mexican and Haitian authorities for Haitian migrants. I had to manage a jump. From Mexico to the US border.
About 30,000 illegal immigrants were encountered over a two-week period this month in Del Rio, where they were living in a sprawling, makeshift camp.
The United States had deported about 4,000 of those people back to Haiti as of Monday, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
An estimated 8,000 migrants returned to Mexico, where officials urged them to follow up with asylum applications in southern Mexico.
The government statement said 70 migrants on Wednesday’s flight were in Mexico City and in the states of Hidalgo, Tabasco and Mexico.
