USCRI Joins Haitian Bridge Alliance & 81 Other Organizations Condemning Haitian Expulsions

By USCRI October 1, 2021

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, and Haitian Bridge Alliance, as well as eighty-one other organizations write to condemn the new “Strategy to Address Increase in Migrants in Del Rio” adopted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on September 18, and to request that DHS immediately rescind the strategy in its entirety and fully restore asylum access for Haitians and other migrants at the southern border. The policy, and the cruel and unacceptable actions of border patrol agents who were documented chasing and whipping migrants on horseback, are both inhumane and illegal. The Biden administration has promised to make immigration fair and humane, and to address racism in U.S. policy. This new policy of rounding up, pushing back, detaining, deporting, and whipping Haitian migrants negates the administration’s promises and must be ended immediately.
