Alejandro N. Mallorcus, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, said on Monday that the United States had expanded protection for Haitians who arrived in the country before July 29, but those who arrived now will not be compensated. ..
“I am very worried that Haitians on this illegal immigrant path have received false information that borders are open or that temporarily protected status is available.” He said at a press conference in Del Rio. .. “I want you to know that this is not the way to come to the United States.”
“Trying to enter the United States illegally is not worth the tragedy, money, or effort,” he added.
