As the border patrol works to deal with 15,000 Haitians on our southern border, there is always the risk that some of them, especially the younger single men, will lash out when they see an opportunity to get into the interior of our nation.
A group of Haitian migrants attempted to escape from the Border Patrol by overpowering their agents on a transport bus Monday afternoon, according to Kleberg County Sheriff Richard Kirkpatrick. He said they were transporting a group of Haitian migrants from Del Rio to Brownsville down Highway 77, when they began fighting with Border Patrol agents to get off that transport.
The Border Agents were injured in the melee.
The bus was about 25 miles south of Kingsville when the incident took place around 4:30 p.m. Monday afternoon.
The agents called in The Kleberg County Sheriff’s Office to assist in getting them back into custody.
“Well I believe in an attempt to abscond into the brush or leave the area these individuals were able to assault federal agents on the bus in an attempt to escape,” Kirkpatrick said.
“I think he was at that point where the driver was able to pull over, that’s when they were able to get and force the door open and abscond off the bus.”

Bill Melugin from FOX News also reported that the Haitian migrants took over this bus. A private contractor transport bus that left Del Rio yesterday headed to Brownsville. It was full of Haitian migrants. Evidently, those Haitian migrants overtook the staff on that bus, forced their way out, and fled from the bus as it was on its way to the Rio Grande Valley.
All of those migrants were later recaptured but Texas Governor Abbott said today he wants every single one of those migrants who forced their way off that bus to not only be jailed but prosecuted to the fullest extent of Texas law.
The good news is no one was killed and the Haitians were captured in the end.
May they spend a long time in jail, then after getting deported back home, share their experience which might deter others from trying the same thing in the near future.
