WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTVE/KARD) — On July 18, U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released a statement about the approximately 80 Haitian immigrant drop off in Shreveport, Louisiana by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with little notice to local and state officials.

“The White House cannot dump groups of Haitian refugees into Louisiana communities with nowhere to go, no photo ID, and no money. It appears Washington told ICE to just ‘send them somewhere,’ and apparently gave little to no notice to state and local officials. Horrible mismanagement. Do President Biden and Vice President Harris care about communities, immigrants, and controlling the border?” said Dr. Cassidy. 

According to KTBS, there are similar drop offs in communities all over Mississippi and Louisiana.
