U.S begins deportation of Haitian out of Texas

145

United states authorities has began deportation of Haitians out of Texas border city where thousands of people had gathered under a bridge after crossing the Rio Grande river from Mexico, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

According to a returned migrant Mondesir Sirilien, he explained how he had spent about $15,000 to leave Haiti, by travelling first to Brazil and then by land to eventually cross the shallow Rio Grande at the U.S. southern border.

“I could have invested that money here, I could have built a great business. It’s not like we don’t know how to do things.

“But we’re not respected, we’re humiliated and now we don’t have anyone to defend us,” he said.

The United States ejected Sirilien and thousands of others them from Texas, leaving many of the would-be migrants demoralized and angry that their search for a better life far away from their impoverished country was over.
