A group of Haitian migrants on Monday took over a bus being used to transport them to a different immigration processing station in Texas, before fleeing the area, sources told Fox News.
Multiple sources told Fox that the bus, traveling from Del Rio to Brownsville, was taken over by migrants who didn’t want to be removed from the U.S. back to Haiti. The migrants forced their way off the bus and fled. All were later caught.
The bus is said to have been contracted by DHS and did not have law enforcement on board. National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd mentioned the incident at a press conference alongside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who called for the perpetrators to be prosecuted.
“When they found out they were going to be sent back to Haiti, they took the bus over and they fled,” Judd said, praising Texas Department of Public Safety for arresting them.
