US Pledges to Boost 'Removal Flights' to Transport Haitian Migrants Stuck Under Texas Bridge

Thousands of migrants from Haiti who flocked into the US via the Mexico border have ended up stranded in a makeshift holding pen under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas.

The Biden administration will step up the number of "removal flights" to move thousands of migrants currently stranded under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas, the Department of Homeland Security has said in a statement. For these purposes, the DHS will secure additional transportation that will allow increasing both the frequency of flights and their capacity.

The removal flights will deliver migrants back to Haiti or to "other destinations in the hemisphere". The removal of migrants from under the bridge is expected to be complete in three days, the department said. The statement also said that some 2,000 migrants have already been moved from the bridge for processing and possible removal from the country.
