The crisis along our border with Mexico has gone from bad to worse, and if you can believe it, matters have gotten even more dire in recent days.
To evade deportation, illegal migrants from Haiti have resorted to full-blown acts of terrorism to remain in the country, a promise the Biden administration gave to all potential immigrants upon entering the White House.
A group of Haitian immigrants reportedly took over a privately-contracted transport bus and attempted to escape federal custody.
Senior law enforcement officials described the debacle:
A busload of illegal immigrants bound for San Antonio from the makeshift camp located underneath a bridge in Del Rio took control of the vehicle and fled before being recaptured by federal agents.
“They did break out of the bus, and they did escape,” a senior federal law enforcement official confirmed.
It is not clear which federal agency, Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was overseeing the transport. CBP initially apprehends, transports, and processes illegal immigrants, while ICE is responsible for longer-term detention and removal from the country. Neither agency responded to requests for comment.
A growing immigration and humanitarian crisis is developing in Del Rio, Texas, after thousands of immigrants flooded across the U.S.-Mexico border and are currently being held in a makeshift holding pen underneath an overpass. The Biden administration is surging federal agents to the area in an attempt to stem the flow of illegal migrants.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has issued strong statements to discourage migrants from attempting to enter the U.S. illegally.

But Mayorkas’ actions, and those of Biden himself, have signaled to potential illegals that a trip across the border will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
In fact, the Biden administration has abanonded many deportation flights back to Haiti has backlash from the Far-Left grows. As a result, migrants have flooded U.S. cities by the thousands with only a notice to appear in immigration court.
“It’s happening on a grand scale,” a former ICE official said.
“So basically all we’re doing is we’re catching them at the border, shipping them into the interior, releasing them and getting more and then releasing them and then getting more and releasing them.”
As this crisis grows, the Biden administration is scrambling to save face and avoid political upsets. Kamala Harris, the supposed border point person, is no where to be found and Biden himself has remained tight-lipped on the matter.
