The Biden administration is preparing to send planeloads of migrants back to Haiti starting as soon as Sunday in a deportation blitz aimed at discouraging more border-crossers from streaming into a crude South Texas camp where nearly 15,000 have arrived, according to five U.S. officials with knowledge of the plans.

The Department of Homeland Security said it would not discuss the frequency and schedule of the flights, citing operational security. But one official said DHS will start with up to three flights per day, while cautioning that plans remained in flux.

Marsha Espinosa, a spokeswoman for the department, confirmed the plans in an email.
