A Depraved, Cruel U.S. Government Deports Thousands of Desperate Haitians by the Planeload
Sept. 20, 2021 (EIRNS)—Arguing that it has the authority to deport migrants under Article 42 of the U.S. Code based on the threat of disease spread, the U.S. government has now begun the process of organizing multiple flights daily to deport more than 10,000 desperate Haitians, who have been attempting to cross into the United States from Ciudad Acuña in Coahuila, Mexico, hoping to apply for asylum. While the flow of migrants toward the border has not stopped, more Border Patrol and Customs Agents as well as National Guards have been deployed to the area, amid fears that such a large number of desperate people could lead to riots. The Biden administration’s “humane” plan is to remove the migrants as quickly as possible, load them onto planes and deport them. The border has now effectively been closed.
Scenes of cruelty and depravity abound. Many of the Haitian migrants have traveled for days on foot across dangerous parts of South and Central America with families and children, carrying little food or clothing, yet are treated like criminals. One video that went viral showed a Border Patrol agent on horseback using a lariat threatening to hit migrants who were crossing the Rio Grande. According to the AP, three flights left yesterday; six will leave on Sept. 21 and seven on Sept. 22. For the next three weeks, there will be six flights a day, aimed at deporting 12,000 people. Some of the deportees who were flown out yesterday reported U.S. immigration officials told them they were going to Florida. Others reported being manacled by the wrists, ankles and waists during the flight to Port-au-Prince. Upon landing, Haitian officials described many as “agitated,” as they hadn’t expected to be forced to return to the country they had fled, after the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, and where they now see no future.
Haitian migration officials are imploring the U.S. not to send the refugees back because the government has no means to manage such an influx. The head of Haiti’s national migration office, Jean Negot Bonheur Delva told the Miami Herald: “The Haitian state is not really able to receive these deportees. We are pleading for a humanitarian moratorium. The country is undergoing a difficult period; whether it’s the insecurity, the lack of infrastructure—we just had a major earthquake on the Aug. 14th in the south. A lot of people lost everything they had; even schools in the region cannot reopen. To be repatriating people back to Haiti at this same moment, and with COVID-19, I think the U.S. should be trying to help Haiti at this moment with a humanitarian moratorium.”
Racist President Thomas Jefferson made known that as soon as the warring Britain and France made peace, the U.S. would act in concert with them to “confine the [Negro] pest” to Haiti.
