President Biden on Friday said he takes responsibility for the situation at the southern U.S. border amid an influx of Haitian migrants, saying there would be consequences for their harsh treatment.
“Of course, I take responsibility. I’m president,” he told reporters at the White House – Haitian migrants waited to learn their fate Friday at a Texas border encampment whose size was dramatically diminished from the almost 15,000 who gathered there just days ago in an effort to seek humanitarian protection in the U.S. but now face expulsion.
The DHS says about 4,000 migrants remain in the camp in Del Rio, with more than 3000 moved to the Customs and Border patrol facilities along the border.
It says it has conducted more than 12 repatriation flights to Haiti, expelling 1,949 Haitian nationals.
