This caused many migrants to return from Del Rio to Mexico to avoid deportation to their hometowns, but the majority of illegal immigrants were still in the United States and are now free from detention.
Customs and Border Protection has gathered enormous backlash to carry out deportation and deterrence efforts after the appearance of images of agents riding horses that appear to be using bridles as whips against migrants.
Included in the backlash was California Senator Maxine Waters, who claimed that the “whipped” image was “worse than slavery,” and black lawmaker Ayanna Pressley used it for black Haitian immigrants. It suggested that the behavior was counter-intuitive to the Black Lives Matter movement.
