Of the roughly 15,000 people removed from the makeshift camp in south Texas, 2,000 have been deported to Haiti, 8,000 voluntarily traveled to Mexico and 5,000 were placed in immigration removal proceedings.

“Today, we have no migrants remaining in the camp under the International Bridge,” Mayorkas told reporters during a White House press briefing. “Migrants continue to be expelled under the [Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s] Title 42 authority.

“Title 42 is a public health authority and not an immigration policy, and it is important to note that Title 42 is applicable, and has been applicable, to all irregular migration.”
