DHS Calls On Military As Thousands of Haitian Migrants Flee Camp, Plan to Re-Enter Elsewhere

"The approach has been an all-of-federal-government effort and, frankly, an all-of-federal-government effort in partnership with state and local authorities in the civil society."

(Headline USA) Thousands of illegal immigrants encamped in Del Rio, Texas are evading federal efforts to round them up, with many heading to Mexico to look for a better spot to reenter the country.

Now, the Biden administration is requesting the military to intervene while one member of the squad is calling Americans racist for refusing to let all the migrants enter.

A Pentagon spokesperson said Monday that the Biden administration has officially asked for military help in transporting the immigrants, which at one point reached 15,000 in number.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited the border Monday because of the crisis.

“The approach has been an all-of-federal-government effort and, frankly, an all-of-federal-government effort in partnership with state and local authorities in the civil society. And the Department of Defense is evaluating a request for assistance, and we hope that will come to fruition very shortly,” Mayorkas said at a news briefing while at the border.

One member of the Squad sparked controversy for fiery comments where she said that the United States “owed” these migrants a place to stay. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., went on to say “systemic racism” was keeping them from finding a home in the U.S.

“When it comes to our immigration policy for so many years, cruelty has been very much embedded in it,” she said on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” in remarks that sparked backlash. “There is obviously systemic racism at play here. We’ve seen people come to the border, and the fact we’re dealing with mainly Black migrants and Black immigrants and asylum seekers at our border in this kind of way, really speaks to the kind of racism, systemic racism that is embedded in that department and all the departments that deal with our immigration policy.”

She went on to say the poor living conditions in Haiti are the fault of the U.S.

“We have also contributed to that,” she said. “Generations of Haitians have experienced American policy that has contributed to their starvation, to the criminalization that they are dealing with, and to the inhumane policies that continue to destroy the lives of Haitians. So not only do we owe Haitians the right thing of allowing them to seek asylum here, but we also owe them the kind of policies that would allow for them to dictate the ways in which they want to run their country.”

The Biden administration has failed in recent days to get the issue under control, but the recent numbers are only a fraction of the number of illegal immigrants entering the country.

“The Biden Administration has reiterated that our borders are not open, and people should not make the dangerous journey,” DHS said Saturday in a statement. “Individuals and families are subject to border restrictions, including expulsion. Irregular migration poses a significant threat to the health and welfare of border communities and to the lives of migrants themselves, and should not be attempted.”

Recent reporting from Axios found that the Biden administration had lost touch with a third of detained children.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration in the month of August surged well over 200,000, more than double the amount earlier this year and almost four times as high as August of 2019.

“In August, U.S. Customs and Border Protection played an important role in Operation Allies Refuge and Operation Allies Welcome, as well as in support of the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Ida and the people of Haiti after their earthquake,” said CBP Acting Commissioner Troy Miller.

“We rose to those challenges even as we continued our vital work in support of our economy and national security at our ports of entry and along our borders,” he added. “In August, CBP processed a significant growth of legitimate travel and trade, with commercial truck transit on par with numbers at this point in Fiscal Year 2019, and passenger vehicle, pedestrian travel, and air travel numbers continuing to progress toward pre-pandemic levels.”
