Washington, DC — Today, days before Haiti Flag Day, the U.S. is deporting over 100 Haitians back to dangerous conditions in Haiti.

As Guerline Jozef, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Haitian Bridge Alliance, said during a press conference on May 8th: 

“It’s urgent for President Biden to re-designate and extend TPS for Haiti… Additionally, the Biden administration must immediately cease the deportation of Haitian nationals. Sending people to a country plagued by insecurity and humanitarian crises is unconscionable. The disparate treatment of Black immigrants must come to an end!”

According to Vanessa Cárdenas, Executive Director at America’s Voice:

“Sending Haitians back amidst political turmoil and increased gang attacks will worsen human suffering. We support the calls from community members and organizations like the Haitian Bridge Alliance and others in urging President Biden to provide protections for Haitian families and immediately stop cruel deportation.”
