CIUDAD ACUÑA, Mexico (Reuters) - U.S. authorities moved some 2,000 people to other immigration processing stations on Friday from a Texas border town that has seen an influx of Haitian and other migrants, the Department of Homeland Security said on Saturday. Such transfers will continue "in order to ensure that irregular migrants are swiftly taken into custody, processed, and removed from the United States consistent with our laws and policy," DHS said in a statement. While some of those seeking jobs and safety have been making their way to the United States for weeks or months, it is only in recent days that the number converging on Del Rio, Texas, has drawn widespread attention, posing a humanitarian and political challenge for the Biden administration.

The United States said Saturday it would step up the number of so-called "removal flights" for thousands of migrants who flooded into the Texas border city of Del Rio, in a bid to alleviate a burgeoning crisis for President Joe Biden's administration.
Thousands of migrants cross the shallow Rio Grande from Mexico with only what they could carry, and officials say hundreds more are coming -- a growing humanitarian crisis for the United States. More than 10,000 migrants, mostly Haitian, were in southern Texas as of Friday, staying in a squalid camp under a bridge. Most of the people Reuters spoke with hadn’t come directly from Haiti but had instead journeyed through Mexico and Central and South America. Republican Congressman Tony Gonzales called on the Biden Administration to take action. “Please get engaged, get involved, do something. This is unsustainable. This is not America.”Buses full of Haitians arrived in Ciudad Acuna in Mexico Friday, and many of them said they plan to cross the Rio Grande. But Reuters saw hundreds of migrants wading back into Mexico to get essentials they said they weren’t getting on the U.S. side. U.S. Border Patrol says it’s providing water, towels and portable toilets. Faced with the influx, the U.S. temporarily closed the port of entry at Del Rio as traffic built up. Police officers told motorists to turn back, rerouting them to the east. Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano issued a disaster declaration. “This is setting a nuclear bomb alarm that this is no longer sustainable or acceptable."The chaos in Del Rio is giving ammunition to critics who say President Joe Biden’s more humane approach to immigration has encouraged migrants. The Wall Street Journal reports the U.S. plans to put the Haitians in Del Rio on flights back to Haiti.

Greece opened a new holding camp for migrants on Saturday on the island of Samos, close to Turkey, and said other new facilities would follow in coming months as it tightens migration policy. Aid groups said the new facility, which will house asylum seekers and people to be deported, looked more like a jail with its fence topped by barbed wire. The Mediterranean country was at the frontline of Europe's migration crisis in 2015 and 2016 when a million refugees fleeing war and poverty from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan arrived, mainly via Turkey.
