(Trends Wide) — The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing some Haitians in the United States, despite repeated claims that they would be immediately expelled from the country.
Although it is not clear how many people have been allowed to enter the United States, at least some immigrants were expected to be released. DHS has warned that most immigrants would be expelled or subject to an expedited removal procedure.
Families seeking asylum, for example, would have a legal basis and could be released with a notice to appear at an immigration office, as has happened in other parts of the border.
Trends Wide contacted DHS for comment.
Trends Wide has seen some buses drop Haitians and people of other nationalities at an NGO in Del Rio, where they buy their bus or plane tickets, and then drop them off at a gas station where the buses pick them up and take them to San Antonio. and from there to other parts of the country.
On Tuesday, DHS conducted four repatriation flights from Del Rio, Texas, to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, with a total of 523 Haitian nationals on board, according to a Homeland Security spokesperson.
In recent months, the Joe Biden administration has released more and more migrant families in the United States.

Until immigration authorities “process” the migrants, they don’t know who they are or if they have a legal basis to stay in the United States.
