Haitian migrants try to get into U.S. via southern border
Several thousand Haitians have traveled to Tijuana in recent months, overflowing migrant shelters and often sleeping outside next to their backpacks on sheets of cardboard, many after traveling 7,000 miles (11,000 kilometers) by foot, taxi and bus from Brazil through eight nations to the threshold of the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection can only handle up to about 75 people a day at San Ysidro, and Tijuana authorities were unhappy about large crowds assembled on the Mexican side of the border crossing.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Sept. 22 halted the humanitarian parole it had given Haitians following a massive 2010 earthquake. Instead of releasing the Haitians into the United States, under a general policy the U.S. is now confining them to a detention facility and it plans to start deporting them back to the homeland they hoped to flee.

With hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Haitian men, women and young children regularly spending the night just outside the busiest United States border crossing, Mexican officials have moved to bring some order to the unruly scene by granting 20-day permits to stay in Mexico while also helping schedule their slots with the Americans on the other side.
