Deported Haitians Try to Rush Back Onto Plane

Dozens of migrants upset about being deported to Haiti from the U.S. clashed with authorities while trying to rush back into a plane that landed Tuesday afternoon in Port-au-Prince.

READ MORE: Top U.S. officials, including Vice President Kamala Harris, on Tuesday condemned the way horse-mounted border agents have corralled Haitian migrants along the Mexican border to keep them from entering the United States.

"What I saw depicted about those individuals on horseback, treating human beings, the way they were (was) horrible," Harris told reporters Tuesday. "And I fully support what is happening right now, which is a thorough investigation into exactly what is going on there. But human beings should never be treated that way."

Harris said she would talk later with Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas, who has ordered a probe into the actions by U.S. Border Patrol agents.

Mayorkas told a congressional hearing Tuesday, "I was horrified to see the images. … We do not tolerate any mistreatment or abuse of a migrant.
