USHRN Supports Letter Demanding Moratorium on All Deportations to HaitiFeb 25, 2021
In response to the horror and outrage following the US government’s plan to deport over 1,800 people to Haiti -- a plan which took effect the first day of Black History Month -- USHRN joined hundreds of organizations in signing on to this statement by the Haitian Bridge Alliance and UndocuBlack, and addressed to Biden, Harris, and other US Government officials.
In part, the letter states: “We strongly urge the government to halt all deportation and expulsion flights to Haiti. While nationwide unrest and political turmoil bring Haiti to 'the verge of explosion,' Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has deported more than 1000 people to Haiti in furtherance of its goal of deporting 1,800 by mid-February.”
