U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued six Haitian nationals attempting to cross the Rio Grande River near the Del Rio Port…
According to the Human Rights Center, Haitian migrants are suffering with “limb paralysis, intestinal bleeding, epidemic problems, vomiting and dehydration, anxiety, stress, depression and thoughts of suicide” at XXI Century Migratory Station detention center in Tapachula, Mexico.
A recent wave of Haitian migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border was triggered by a chain of Facebook and WhatsApp messages (an app co-developed by Ukrainian immigrant Jan Koum). When migrants began to enter the U.S. under Temporary Protected Status after Hurricane Maria, they messaged their Haitian friends and family in other countries. This group also messaged other friends and family, leading to roughly 17,000 Haitians migrating to the bordertown of Tijuana seeking asylum.
