Clarke, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, who represents the 9th Congressional District in Brooklyn, New York and Thompson, met Tae Johnson about it.

3As members of the House Homeland Security Committee, this call was imperative,3 said Clarke 3Haiti faces a delicate political landscape that could cause disproportionate damage to wrongfully deported immigrants adding“ As a girl Jamaican immigrants, I can say it with confidence, our immigration system is broken [...] The targeted deportation to Haiti illustrates the violence exerted on immigrant communities, in particular immigrant communities of color.3

"I realize that ICE must carry out its mission in accordance with legal precedents. However, this must be done in a way that is sensitive to the humanitarian needs of recent border crossings," Clarke continued.

For his part Bennie G. Thompson declared "[…] as the Joe Biden administration implements immigration policies more in line with our American values ​​and priorities, it is imperative that they help migrants from Haiti and taking into account the conditions on the ground in their country [...] Continuing the expulsions to Haiti risks causing further destabilization and I encourage the administration to consider all possible options to avoid further damage."
