Haiti - FLASH : UN experts condemn the expulsions of Haitians by Washington
On Monday, October 25, 2021, a group of 5 UN human rights experts condemned Washington's expulsions of Haitian migrants and refugees, saying they were part of a policy of "racialised exclusion" of black Haitians at the entry points of the American borders.

As part of their so-called "Title 42" policy adopted last year by the administration of former President Donald Trump for health reasons, the Biden administration authorized the mass deportation of Haitians migrants and asylum seekers https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34786-haiti-flash-joe-biden-orders-the-deportation-of-thousands-of-illegal-haitian-migrants.html

So far, Washington has repatriated several thousand Haitian migrants from a camp in Del Rio, Texas, to Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35062-haiti-migration-500-foreign-children-deported-to-haiti.html

The group of experts who focus on racism and xenophobia have written an "allegation letter" to Washington protesting the government's actions, according to a press briefing, which has yet to be released.

"In expediting the collective expulsion of Haitian migrants, the United States is subjecting a group of predominantly Black migrants to impermissible risks of refoulement (forced returns) and human rights abuse without any individualised evaluation," said the experts, estimating that these actions were in violation of international refugee and human rights laws" adding "States cannot label all migrants of a certain nationality per se threats to national security, and all migrants, no matter their nationality, race or migration status, must be guaranteed the protections called for under international law."
