Thousands at the border: the United States intensifies deportations

With thousands of people at the US-Mexico border, the US is pressing for deportations. Many Haitians and people from other countries have been under a bridge linking the United States and Mexico since last week.

The US Department of Homeland Security announced over the weekend that it will purchase additional transportation to increase the frequency and capacity of deportation flights to Haiti. The situation at the border sheds light on US President Joe Biden’s immigration policy – the number of migrants arrested at the US southern border has risen rapidly in recent months.
