In Texas camp, GOP sees invasion while Democrats see mistreatment of Haitian migrants:
Top Democrats, who had been strikingly silent about the illegal immigrant camp that built up on U.S. soil, are now lashing out at the Border Patrol agents assigned to handle the situation, accusing them of abusing the Haitian migrants streaming into the U.S.
Images of agents on horseback trying to block Haitians from reaching the camp, some seemingly deploying reins in the effort, reverberated through Democratic circles Monday.
Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, the top Democrat on the subcommittee that handles the Border Patrol’s funding, pronounced herself “deeply disturbed.”

"Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and White House press secretary Jen Psaki condemned law enforcement efforts to prevent Haitian migrants from crossing into Del Rio this week. --->READ MORE HERE
