Senior career diplomat, Daniel Foote, US special envoy for Haiti has resigned in protest over the deportation of Haitian migrants which he described as “inhumane”.
Biden had begun the forced deportation of desperate Haitians from Texas-Mexican border, flying them to Haiti where they are unceremoniously abandoned on the runway.
“I will not be associated with the United States inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti, a country where American officials are confined to secure compounds because of the danger posed by armed gangs to daily life,” Daniel Foote stated in his resignation letter. “Our policy approach to Haiti remains deeply flawed, and my policy recommendations have been ignored and dismissed, when not edited to project a narrative different from my own.”
Foote explained Haiti was a "collapsed state" that "simply cannot support the forced infusion of thousands of returned migrants lacking food, shelter, and money without additional, avoidable human tragedy".
