Haiti - FLASH : Tens of thousands of Haitians en route to USA
Saldana said that these newcomers have contributed to the announcement Thursday by Homeland Security Department of the lift of the special protections shielding Haitians from deportation that were put in place after the 2010 earthquake https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18700-haiti-flash-usa-resumption-of-regular-deportations-to-haiti.html adding that changing conditions in Haiti has also played a role in that decision.
This decision could significantly affect Haitians who come to the US border in California, claiming they lived in Brazil for several years, that they have left for economic reasons and traveled through Central America and Mexico .
Homeland Security officials indicate that about 5,000 Haitians have been stopped at San Diego's San Ysidro port of entry since October, compared to only 339 for the 2015 fiscal year. A large numbers have also turned themselves in to U.S. inspectors in Calexico, California, 120 miles east of San Diego.
The flow of migrants is so important that inspectors at San Ysidro, the busiest border crossing, return Haitians with appointments at a later date, leaving hundreds waiting in Tijuana, Mexico where many stay in one of five shelters of the border Mexican city.
