Haitian Illegal Immigrants Attempt To Hijack Border Patrol Bus In Texas

A group of Haitian illegal immigrants briefly hijacked a Border Patrol transport bus that was reportedly taking them to their deportation flight.

KIII-TV in Corpus Christi reports:

“…citing information from Kleberg County Sheriff Richard Kirkpatrick, reported the migrants were being transported to Del Rio from Brownsville, Texas on Highway 77.
When the migrants realized they were being deported, they started fighting with Border Patrol agents and forced the bus to stop. Kirkpatrick told KIII-TV the migrants ran away in an effort to escape, but law enforcement officers who responded to the scene eventually detained them.
Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, acknowledged the incident during a news conference with Texas Governor Greg Abbott in Del Rio, Texas on Tuesday…
Kirkpatrick said following a chase, authorities were able to detain the migrants. Shortly after, they were transported onto a different prisoner transport bus. 
"Nevertheless, this is just a continued case in point of an extremely volatile situation that is getting out of control," Kirkpatrick said. 
"As we go forward with this type of continuing thing as the border crisis unfolds."
According to Kirkpatrick the migrants were then escorted by law enforcement officials to Brownsville.”

In addition, a pilot and three ICE Officers were assaulted on a deportation flight to Port-au-Prince.

The attacks happened after a flight carrying single adult males arrived and released them to Haitian authorities on the tarmac.

Several of the men stormed another recently arrived flight.

NBC News reports:

"The men assaulted the pilots of that plane, who work for a government contractor licensed to fly deportation flights for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, while the families were still on board. Three ICE officers were also attacked on that plane, each suffering non-life-threatening injuries, the source said.
In a statement, a DHS spokesperson said, “On Tuesday, Sept. 21, some adult migrants caused two separate disruptions on the tarmac after deplaning in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Haitian crowd control officers responded to both incidents and resolved the situations. ICE fully respects the rights of all people to peacefully express their opinions, while continuing to perform its immigration enforcement mission consistent with our priorities, federal law and agency policy.”
