Urgent Action: STOP U.S. ABUSES AGAINST HAITIAN PEOPLE (USA: UA 99.21)September 23, 2021
Thousands of Haitians are traveling to the US-Mexico border to seek asylum in the U.S., with many settling in camps after being denied entry. The US government is responding with human rights violations and violence, including deportations of thousands to Haiti. These deportations put Haitians at risk of violence, being unhoused, and even death as Haiti is in the midst of political, economic, and environmental crises. Media has documented US border authorities abusing and taunting Haitians while riding on horses and brandishing whips. Call on US authorities to end deportations and respect the human right to seek asylum.
