Former ICE Director, Tom Homand, was interviewed by Fox News on Monday - he accused Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, of lying about the number of Haitian migrants that entered and are currently living in the U.S. illegally. In an interview with Fox's Chris Wallace, Mayorkas admitted that there are approximately 10,000 to 12,000 migrants have been released into the United States.
The number of migrants that were released into the U.S. could be higher than reported, Mayorkas said in the interview
"It could even be higher"... "The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it."
There is an estimated 12,400 Haitian migrants are awaiting to have their cases heard by judges, there are about 5,000 that are being processed by DHS and approximately 3,000 in detention. This is a very big number.
Tom Homand would sit down with Fox and would refute what Mayorkas was saying -
"It's much more than that and he knows that"
Homan would say
Homan would say that Mayorkas is underestimating the figures,
"When he said the 8,000 will return to Mexico, went back to Mexico, he realizes they went one or two miles down the line and came into the United States because they surged so many resources to Del Rio they left 220 miles of border unguarded,"
Homan believes that the number of Haitian's illegally living in the United States is far more than Mayorkas said,
When you say 12,000 are in immigration proceedings, they are not. That's what the secretary leads you to believe,'
Homan would continue by stating thousands of migrants were given a 'Notice to Report' - that does not guarantee that these migrants will turn themselves in or even show up.
