Biden Orders Deportation Flights?

(DailyEmailNews.com) – Making a political move after seeing his chances at reelection slipping away, Joe Biden’s administration decided to restart deportation flights but only to Haiti.

According to Border Report, Biden’s move comes at a time when the Caribbean country deals with a worsening security situation marked by gang violence.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sent around 50 Haitian nationals back to their homeland.

Information from Witness at the Border, a group that monitors deportation flights, suggests that this was the first flight since January 2023 when the U.S. regularly conducted deportations to Haiti every month.

The deportation operation started in Alexandria, Louisiana, and continued to Cap-Haitien, Haiti, after a brief layover in Miami.

At the same time, gang violence in Haiti is escalating, with recent attacks to disrupt the establishment of a transitional government in the capital, Port-au-Prince.

According to Reuters, these gangs have also looted the State University of Haiti’s medical facilities and blocked essential supply routes, making the shortages of fuel, food and other necessities worse.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is closely monitoring the deteriorating conditions in Haiti and coordinating with the State Department and international partners.

“At this time, irregular migration flows through the Caribbean and irregular encounters of Haitian nationals at the southwest border remain low,” a DHS spokesperson said.

Border Patrol in Miami raised alarms as early as March about the chances of Haitian migrants reaching Florida’s shores, as revealed by a leaked internal email. The email highlighted the strain a single landing of illegals could place on their operations.

Moreover, the Coast Guard has been actively returning migrants intercepted at sea. Since the beginning of October, over 131 Haitian illegals have been sent back, including a group of 65 on March 12.

DHS restated its commitment to enforcing U.S. laws across various regions, saying, “All irregular migration journeys, especially maritime routes, are extremely dangerous, unforgiving, and often result in loss of life.”

“DHS will continue to enforce US laws and policy throughout the Florida Straits and the Caribbean region, as well as at the southwest border. US policy is to return noncitizens who do not establish a legal basis to remain in the United States.”
