The United States warns citizens of Cuba and Haiti against trying to enter the country illegally. This was stated on Wednesday at a briefing by the head of the press service of the State Department, Ned Price.
“US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas spoke yesterday about our sincere concern about reality. All those from Haiti or Cuba who try to find asylum in the United States by sea are putting themselves in danger,” he said. – These are dangerous trips that do not allow you to safely get [to the territory of the United States]. This is a humanitarian concern that was voiced by the Minister of Mayorkas.”
When asked about negotiations with third countries on granting asylum to Cubans and Haitians, Price replied: “I have nothing for you regarding third countries. We are working closely with the Department of Homeland Security.”
Mayorkas on Tuesday urged citizens of Cuba and Haiti not to try to enter the United States illegally.
