The United States is sending victims back to Haiti, and the ambassador has resigned in protest

Thousands of victims gathered at the U.S.-Mexico border in anticipation of migration from Haiti, an island nation in the Caribbean region plagued by earthquakes and political unrest. The United States has begun the process of repatriating them. Daniel Foote, the US special envoy to Haiti, has resigned in protest. News from BBC and Reuters.

In his resignation letter, Daniel wrote, “The situation in Haiti, devastated by the earthquake, is already deplorable. Political instability is going on in the country. In such a situation, it is inhumane to send the citizens of the country back to Haiti. A senior State Department official confirmed the news to Reuters.

A BBC report on Thursday said about 13,000 Haitians had gathered in the US state of Texas, which borders Mexico. They are standing under a bridge there in the intense heat of 38 degrees Celsius. The local administration is confident of ensuring their food and sanitation facilities.

The Biden administration has been in the process of repatriating the asylum seekers to Haiti since last Sunday. A total of 1,401 people have already been flown back to Haiti from Texas. The rest will be sent back to their homeland step by step. Daniel has opposed such an initiative by the US administration.

“Haiti is a fragile state,” Daniel wrote in his resignation letter. In this situation, the inhumane process of forcibly returning thousands of migrants without food, shelter and money cannot be supported. ‘

“Haitians need urgent assistance,” Daniel wrote, criticizing the United States and other countries for interfering in Haitian politics.

The people of Haiti were hit by a devastating earthquake in 2010. Many left Haiti to cope with the devastation. Many took refuge in South American countries, including Brazil. Later, many Haitians tried to immigrate to the United States in the hope of a better life and livelihood.

This year, the people of Haiti have once again faced uncertainty. The country’s president, Jovenal Moisie, was assassinated last July. Since then, political instability has continued in Haiti. In August there was another earthquake in Haiti.
A senior State Department official announced the resignation of Ambassador Daniel Foote on Thursday.

In his resignation letter, Foote said the decision to send back Haitians who fled to the United States to escape the earthquake and political instability was “inhumane.”

“I will not take part in this inhumane decision to repatriate thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants,” he said.

Noting that the US policy on Haiti was flawed, Foote said his recommendations on Haitian citizens had not been heeded and ignored.
