The US government says it intends to repatriate the migrants from where they started their journey.

Flights are expected to begin on Sunday, with the United States currently discussing return with the countries in question.

Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry sent aid to migrants on social media late Saturday night, saying “arrangements have already been made” to welcome the returnees.

But some immigrants say they are afraid to return. “There is no security in Haiti,” Fabrizio Jane, 38, who is in camp with his wife and two daughters, told the Associated Press. The country is in a political crisis.

In Haiti, people are killing each other, justice is not being done. “I just want to live a quiet life without any worries, I want to live somewhere where I know there is justice.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that the transfer will continue to ensure that illegal immigrants are immediately detained, prosecuted and deported in accordance with our laws and policies.

It added that US Customs and Border Protection was sending 400 additional agents to Del Rio, a city of about 35,000 people.

The US government says it intends to repatriate the migrants from where they started their journey.

Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano has declared a state of emergency, calling the situation “unprecedented” and “realistic.” He said border patrols were over and “angry” migrants were living in impossible conditions.

Del Rio’s makeshift camp has some basic services, and migrants waiting in 37’C (99F) temperatures are roaming across the river to Mexico for supplies.

Most of the migrants are from Haiti, with some in Cuba, Peru, Venezuela and Nicaraguan.

Many Haitians fled the country after the devastating earthquake in 2010, and a large number of campers lived in Brazil or other South American countries and traveled north after failing to find jobs or legal status.

Cuba is also fleeing the island’s worst economic crisis since the end of the Cold War, according to the BBC’s Mexican correspondent Will Grant.

He says many Texas immigrants have crossed the dense jungle on foot between Colombia and Panama, the most treacherous journey of migrants in Latin America.

The US government has reported an increase in the number of refugees on the Mexican border this year.

In July, the number of migrants detained there exceeded 200,000 for the first time in 21 years, according to government figures.

The Ministry of Defense shared the details of more than 250 Afghan interpreters by email.

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace has launched an investigation into the data breach, which included the email addresses of dozens of Afghan interpreters who worked for British forces.

More than 250 people seeking to relocate to the UK – many in hiding – were mistakenly copied in an e-mail from the Ministry of Defense.

Their email addresses are visible to all recipients, showing people’s names and some related profile pictures.

The Defense Ministry apologized in a statement.

The e-mail was sent to translators who live in Afghanistan or have been able to travel to other countries.

Conservative Member of Parliament and former Secretary of Defense Johnny Mercer told BBC Radio 4’s Today program: “The reality is we’ve left the vast, vast majority of our interpreters behind so this is going to have a profound impact on people who are still in the country.”

He said he had spoken to the brother of a man who had been trained by Britain to serve in the Afghan Special Forces, who had been hanged after the withdrawal of the United States and Britain, and whose family had now fled. ۔

He said the failure of the Ministry of Defense and the Home Office had “brutally victimized” Afghan allies.

The e-mail was sent by the team in charge of the UK’s Afghan Locations and Assistance Policy (ARP), which has been in contact with the Taliban since they took control of the country last month.

The team told spokespersons it was doing everything possible to relocate them.

He also said that they should not endanger themselves or their families if it is not safe for them to leave their current position.

But a translator who received the e-mail noticed that more than 250 Afghans who had worked with British forces had been copied in the e-mail.

“This mistake could kill translators, especially for those still in Afghanistan,” he told the BBC.

“Some translators did not notice the error and have already responded to all emails and explained their situation, which is very dangerous. The email includes their profile pictures and contact details.”

The MOD sent another e-mail 30 minutes later entitled “Urgent-Arp Case Contact” to warn recipients to delete the previous e-mail and warn “Your e-mail address has been compromised”.

It recommends translators change their email addresses.

Labor Shadow Defense Secretary John Haley said the data breach “unnecessarily endangered lives” and called on the government to immediately step up efforts to bring interpreters to the UK.

After referring to the BBC’s Ministry of Defense, the Secretary of Defense was so angry that he ordered an immediate investigation.

It is possible that this data breach was just a human error, and the apology is certainly sincere, but there are obviously concerns if email addresses, names and photos fall into the wrong hands.

Although the withdrawal from the ground was rightly praised, the failure to evacuate all those working with British forces left hundreds stranded and in hiding.

Just this week we spoke to the family of an eight-month-old British boy who is still trapped there, a translator who is running for his life, and another translator who does not yet know what to do.

This data breach only adds to their security concerns.

A Pentagon spokesman said an investigation had been launched into what Mr Wallace called an “unacceptable violation”.

“We apologize to everyone affected by this violation and are working hard to ensure it does not happen again,” he said.

He added that the Ministry of Defense takes its information and data handling responsibilities very seriously.

Tobias L. Wood, head of the Defense Select Committee, welcomed the investigation but said that expelling the spokesmen as soon as possible was a source of great pressure.

“Every day they live in the country, their risk of not going abroad increases,” he said.
