Haiti - Social : Haitian migrants in the world face difficult situations
According to the migration authorities of Panama, this year, Haitian migrants constitute the third largest group of migrants to cross the Colombian jungle of the "Darien Gap" one of the most dangerous regions in Latin America, an area of swamp and of hostile forests of approximately 8,000 km2 where 3 groups of rebels clash, essential passage to pass in Panama. A crossing during which Haitians are sometimes robbed, attacked or raped along the way and where dozens die each year for various reasons (aggression, health, poisonous animals, rebels etc...) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34962-haiti-flash-56-600-haitians-this-year-crossed-the-dangerous-jungle-of-darien-colombia.html
Last September marked the first anniversary of the Del Rio crisis which led to the deportations of tens of thousands of Haitian migrants to Haiti by the USA and Mexico https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34786-haiti-flash-joe-biden-orders-the-deportation-of-thousands-of-illegal-haitian-migrants.html
If Amnesty International revealed in its latest report last September, the many cases of violations of the rights of Haitian migrants (ill-treatment, physical and psychological torture and racism) during the Del Rio crisis, the fact remains that migrants Haitians still present today at the Mexican-American border continue to face very difficult situations.
In Tijuana, Acuno and Renoysa among others...

With regard to migrants present in the Dominican Republic, human rights organizations continue to deplore the multiple cases of violations of their rights during the repatriation process.
Moreover, despite the catastrophic situation, Haiti continues to receive returnees mainly from the Dominican Republic (300 to 700 per day currently, according to the Directorate General of Migration - DGM) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37730-haiti-social-18-412-haitians-back-from-dominican-rep-in-1-month.html but also from Cuba and the Bahamas among others...
