WASHINGTON — Haitians deported from the U.S. on Tuesday assaulted the pilots on board one of the flights when it arrived in Port-au-Prince and injured three U.S. immigration officers, according to a source familiar with internal reports of the incident.
Unrest broke out shortly after a flight carrying single adult men arrived and released the men to Haitian authorities on the airport tarmac.
Then, according to the source, several of the men stormed another recently arrived flight carrying families.
Three ICE officers were also attacked on that airplane, each suffering non-life-threatening injuries, the source said.
As of Tuesday, just over 1,000 of the Haitian migrants had been deported to Haiti, according to two sources familiar with the operations.
