A spokeswoman for the US State Department, Kristina Rosales, confirmed to the Telemundo 51 television network that deportation flights with illegal Cubans in the country will soon double. He also warned that all those who try to enter the southern border by mistake will be sent back without hesitation.
“Smuggling flights will continue, they will double and triple, especially those who use irregular routes, those who are inaccessible, who present themselves through land or sea routes. People who are found by the Coast Guard. And those who stay illegally at airports will be sent back”, was assured Rosales.
The official added that the deportations would continue whether they were for Cubans or from any other country. He also asked that those who are in the United States with deportation orders, with relatives who can care for them, find ways to avoid deportation.
“When we end Title 42 and enter Title 8, we want people to know what options they have, because if they have them they should inform themselves, not the trafficker who’s going to charge them,” he added. The authority promised them access to migrant centers opening in Colombia and Guatemala.
Deportation flights from the United States to Cuba
“It’s sad, but no country can cope with so much immigration”, “it is known and in the future many people will become homeless and cause problems for the family” or “I like this good news. Now there will be less criminals”, some reactions in this regard.
On the first flight of deportees from the United States to Cuba, more than 100 were turned away, the majority captured at the southern border and who did not pass the “credible fear” interview, while the other percent were rafters, who had nothing. Kind of thinking because they give it all back.
For this reason, officials insist that the “humanitarian parole” route be used. Well, repatriates cannot access this policy for five years.
