REPORT: Haitian illegals revolt, take over transport bus and escape

Haitian illegals who were being driven to San Antonio reportedly revolted and took over the transport bus before escaping:

YAHOO NEWS – Haitian migrants who were being transported on a federally contracted private bus away from the border revolted during the ride and overtook control of the commercial vehicle before escaping, according to two law enforcement officials.

A large white bus bound for San Antonio, Texas, was overtaken Monday afternoon during the two-and-a-half-hour trip from the international bridge in Del Rio. The migrants on board had been picked up from the makeshift migrant camp, where thousands are waiting to be taken into custody, two federal law enforcement agents told the Washington Examiner.

“They did break out of the bus, and they did escape,” a senior federal law enforcement official confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.

It is not clear which federal agency, Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was overseeing the transport. CBP initially apprehends, transports, and processes illegal immigrants, while ICE is responsible for longer-term detention and removal from the country. Neither agency responded to requests for comment.

However, ICE told a local media outlet that “several noncitizens attempted to flee the contracted bus.”

The two people who confirmed the incident said law enforcement searched for the escapees and recaptured them.

I don’t know why they were being transported to San Antonio, other than to be deported back to Haiti. Which is likely why they tried to escape.

But hey, I thought Psaki said that none of them intended to stay very long anyway. The US is just making their trip a little shorter, so why revolt?
