Outrage as border agents on horseback ’round up’ Haitians for deportation; DHS tells Haiti’s government to expect EIGHT flights per day

Border agents on horseback chased down and “rounded up” Haitian immigrants like cattle in Del Rio, Texas on Sunday.

One of the agents was seen swinging a rope to lasso a person wading in the Rio Grande.

More than 15,000 Haitians traveled to the Texas through South America and Mexico. They have been living in squalor amid human waste under the Del Rio International Bridge for a week.

The Department of Homeland Security said 400 agents and police will be in Del Rio, Texas on Monday to process the Haitian migrants for deportation back to Haiti.

Advocacy groups are demanding answers to the disparity in U.S. immigration policy toward the Haitians.

Texas officials are overwhelmed by the surge of mainly Haitian immigrants that swelled from 4,000 to 14,000 in just 2 days last week.

A prevailing theory is that Haitians believe the Biden administration will treat them more kindly than the Trump administration that did everything it could to restrict border crossings.

But DHS officials say the Haitians are not welcome here. One official said the migrants are being deported under Title 42 health protections — due to Covid-19.

“Our borders are not open, and people should not make the dangerous journey,” one official said.

But rather than resettle the Haitians in cities across the US – as Biden did with thousands of Mexican and Afghan migrants – the Haitians are being deported back to Haiti before they can apply for asylum.

After arriving in Ciudad Acuna, Mexico, the migrants waded across the Rio Grande dam in knee deep water to reach the encampment under the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas.

Prosperous Haitians who paid up to $10,000 to fly to South America from Haiti found themselves living in squalor under the bridge alongside the poorest Haitians.

Their perilous journey ended right back where they started.

The first planeload of nearly 300 refugees landed in Haiti on Sunday.

As they descended the steps, many hid their faces from the cameras and threatened photographers who took their pictures.

One Haitian man said he lived and worked in Chile for years after migrating there when the 2010 earthquake in Haiti killed more than 200,000 people. He only followed the others to Texas when jobs dried up in Chile.

The man said border agents snatched him from under the bridge as he slept in the middle of the night and deported him back to a country he barely knows.

“How could they bring us back here?” he asked. “This is an injustice. I don’t even know where we are going to sleep tonight.

“If Biden continues with these deportations, he’s no better than Trump. I’m afraid for my safety here. I don’t even know this country anymore.”

DHS has told Haiti’s government to expect up to eight flights a day beginning Monday.

Tom Cartwright of the advocacy group Witness at the Border who tracks repatriation flights, said three Coast Guard planes left Texas bound for Haiti on Sunday.

We’re sure you’ve seen the memes of Steve Harvey and his latest fashion ensembles trending online lately! Everyone wants to know who’s responsible for Steve Harvey’s new drip!

Could it be his wife, Majorie Harvey? How about Steve Harvey himself? Or maybe it’s his baby girl, Lori Harvey!

The world wants to know and SKN by LH, CEO, Lori Harvey sat down with Daily Pop to reveal the answer. According to the 24-year-old model herself, her father’s elevated look has been inspired by fashion stylist Elly Karamoh.

“I would like to take credit, but he actually has my best friend as a stylist, Elly Karamoh,” Lori explained. “He has completely transformed him, he’s like a new style icon. He’s feeling himself. You can’t tell him anything right now.”

Elly has taken Steve Harvey from baggy suits to slim-fit runway tuxedos, leather pants, and monochromatic hot pink suits. His latest looks have gone viral making Steve a soon to be fashion icon.

While Lori can’t take credit for Steve Harvey’s new fashion sense she can take credit for his glowing skin! The comedian’s youngest daughter just launched her new skincare line, SKN by LH.

“I’ve honestly been obsessed with skincare since I was a little girl,” Lori said on E! News’ Daily Pop. “Watching my mom do her skincare tutorials in the mirror, I was like, okay, I want to emulate that. I want to get glowing skin. She continued, “So as I got older, trying out different products trying to figure out what worked with my skin—I have extremely sensitive skin so a lot of the products I was using were honestly making my skin so much worse—and I decided, you know what, I think I want to give this a try. I think I can come out with a great skincare line. And SKN by LH was born.”

Her father and boyfriend, Michael B. Jordan, have served as test subjects for Lori to develop the best products for future consumers.

“He [Steve Harvey] always gives me unsolicited advice, but he gives me great business advice,” Lori explained. “He’s an incredible businessman so he’s been extremely helpful as I’ve been on this new business venture.”

Through the years, Kumail Nanjiani has gone from a fan-favorite comedian and hilarious actor to an A-list star, earning roles in major motion pictures, including his Marvel debut in ‘Eternals.’

Tons of actors go through rigorous workout routines when they take on roles as superheroes, and Kumail Nanjiani is no exception! The 43-year-old Pakistani-American actor will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut on November 5, when Eternals hits theaters nationwide, but the actor’s muscular gains have been in the making for a few years now! The actor has gone from lovable comedian to a total hunk in a matter of years!

Kumail began his acting career in 2008 with a bit part in an episode of Saturday Night Live, where he played an Indian reporter, and he continued to get cast in a variety of TV shows and movies. His first big breakout role was in 2014’s Silicon Valley, where he played the programmer Dinesh Chugtai. While he rose to fame mostly for comedic roles, he also received much critical-acclaim when he co-wrote the screenplay for the rom-com The Big Sick with his wife Emily V. Gordon, 42. The Big Sick earned Kuamil and his wife an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay in 2018.

While Kumail was always a good looking comic and actor, he debuted his six-pack and Chris Pratt–like transformation for the MCU in 2019, when he took to his Instagram to show-off his muscular new physique. The Stuber star joked about showing off his new body at the time. “I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are,” he wrote in the caption.

When debuting his new look, Kumail praised the team that helped him completely change his look. “I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world,” he wrote. With the first stills of the movie, Kumail still looks like he’s in totally great shape and showed off his character Kingo’s silver and purple superhero outfit!

James Kennedy Offers Update on Max After Fight on Pump Rules, Shades Lala for Meddling With Scheana's Relationship and Slams Katie

James Kennedy appeared on Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with fiancee Raquel Leviss and during the appearance, he offered an update on his friendship with Max Todd.

After Raquel was seen presenting a peace offering to Max on James’ behalf during the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules, James revealed where the two of them stand today while also shading Lala Kent for meddling in the relationship of Scheana Shay and her fiancé Brock Davies.

“What is the current status of your friendship with Max and why are you always getting into the most stupid fights over food?” a fan asked, via webcam, on the October 19 episode of WWHL.

“Max and I, we’re on great terms. [I] wish we could hang out more but he’s just been so busy and I’ve been so busy but we are on good terms and I just get myself into these sticky situations sometimes and I gotta learn,” James replied, also confirming that Max “loved” his gift.

Then when Andy Cohen asked, “Do you agree with Lala that Scheana’s ignoring big red flags with Brock or do you have faith in Scheana’s judgment?,” James admitted to feeling that Lala should butt out of the relationships of other Pump Rules cast members.

“I’ve got faith in Scheana’s judgment and I don’t think Lala should be sticking her nose in everyone’s relationship business,” he told the host.

Also during the show, Raquel reacted to a question from Andy about Sandoval’s ongoing tension with Katie, who is determined to be involved with their new bar.

“Does Sandoval need to be more accepting of Katie’s potential role in the business or should she butt out?” Andy wondered.

“Do you want my honest answer? I think that she should butt out. It’s Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz’s business and I feel like she’s kind of bored with her life and she wants to insert herself,” Raquel replied.

Vanderpump Rules season nine airs Tuesday at 9/8c on Bravo.
