Texas braces for 60,000 migrants arriving from Haiti

• by Ramon Tomey

They claim that 60,000 migrants from Haiti are expected to arrive at the southern border, following an earlier batch awaiting custody. This comes as the Biden administration limits both Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted on Oct. 3: "[The] Texas National Guard is gearing up at the border for increased caravans attempting to cross the border caused by [President Joe] Biden's open border policy. They are working with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to seal surge locations at the border and arrest trespassers."

The governor's spokeswoman, Renae Eze, told the Washington Examiner the next day that Texas has deployed thousands of guard members and DPS troopers to the border over the past seven months. However, she refused to disclose how many are on border duties.
