Haiti - FLASH : USA will expel 78 Haitians including the former Head of FRAPH Emmanuel «Toto» Constant
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) planned a 4th expulsion flight of Haitians from the United States to Port-au-Prince on Tuesday May 26, 2020, while Haiti is in the grips of the Covid-19 which has already contaminated 800 people and killed 25

Among the 78 Haitians who will be deported for having lived for the most part in an irregular migratory situation at least 6 tested positive in April for Covid-19 and it is not known if they are cured or if other cases in this flight have previously tested positive.

In addition, according to the May 26 flight manifesto, the Trump administration plans to expel one of the death squad leaders, Emmanuel "Toto" Constant (63) whose name is on the list.

Recall that in the years following the military coup in Haiti in 1991, Constant was the Head of the Front for the Advancement and Progress of Haiti (FRAPH), a paramilitary organization, whose death squads terrorized supporters of the ousted President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Squadrons responsible for more than 3,000 assassinations, countless rapes and tortures... Constant had been convicted in absentia in Haiti with 14 other people for the massacre of Raboteau in 1994.

Note that Constant has just served a 12-year sentence in a New York prison after being convicted, among other things, of mortgage fraud and various thefts.

His deportation to Haiti will only complicate the situation to an ill-prepared justice which is trying to respond to litigants and to enforce the law between gang violence and the Covid-190... However, it should be noted that Emmanuel "Toto" Constant was already on the list of May 12 and that for some unknown reason (pressure from Haiti ?) His expulsion had been postponed...
