In Haiti, this year was marked by the massive repatriation of several tens of thousands of our compatriots, in particular by the United States, the Dominican Republic and other Latin American countries (Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Bahamas , Turks and Caicos Islands…).

Over the past 10 years, the available data shows a significant presence of Haitians across Latin America (Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-32238-haiti-flash-a-presidential-decree-removes-the-power-of-the-csc-ca-to-oppose-the-signing-of-a-contract.html Ecuador, Panama https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27814-haiti-social-panama-faces-a-haitian-migration-crisis.html ...).

Turned back to the border, thousands of Haitians have been repatriated to Haiti. Others, unable to fulfill their American dream, are forced to lead a miserable life in Mexican border towns like Tapachula, Ciudad Acuña, Tijuana https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33581-haiti-mexico-in-tijuana-haitian-refugees-live-in-an-overcrowded-and-unworthy-camps.html , Mexicali...

For its part, the Dominican Republic continues to tighten its migration policy between August 2020 and August 2021, more than 175,000 undocumented Haitians in an irregular migratory situation have been repatriated to Haiti (source: Dominican Ministry of Defense). Tens of thousands of Haitian workers in an irregular situation risk deportation in January 2022 following new measures taken by the Dominican Republic to strictly enforce migration laws https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-35140-icihaiti-dr-tens-of-thousands-of-haitian-workers-in-an-irregular-situation-risk-deportation-in-january-2022.html
