Federal immigration officials have prioritized the removal of single males from a massive migrant camp in Del Rio, Texas, as part of an effort to prevent potential violent unrest in the area, according to reports.
U.S. authorities have been whittling away at a crowd of illegal aliens that grew to more than 15,000 in recent days.
Many who have been relocated or repatriated are lone males from Haiti.
“I’m told that DHS has largely emptied the Del Rio encampment of the single males they feared would start a riot. Removal is by bus. Here was a typical line,” explained Center for Immigration Studies fellow Todd Bensman, who has been reporting from the ground in south Texas and Mexico.
Transporting some of the Del Rio camp migrants has proven a dangerous task.
Multiple immigration agents and contractors have been attacked during relocation operations in recent days, according to reports.
“DHS confirms to Fox News that Haitian migrants on a deportation flight back to Haiti caused ‘two separate disruptions’ on the tarmac in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Three ICE officers were [injured] & sustained non life threatening injuries. Haitian crowd control police responded,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin revealed on Wednesday.
In another incident, a DHS-contracted bus moving migrants to the Rio Grande Valley was hijacked during an onboard revolt.
There are still over 6,000 illegal aliens camped in Del Rio as of the most recent available reports.
