The US Department of Homeland Security has announced that it will continue deporting Haitian migrants back to their country, amid worsening gang warfare that prompted it a day earlier to urge its own citizens to evacuate. The spokesperson said that "Removals of Hatian nationals encountered at our southern border and repatriation of Haitan nationalies encountered on sea continue," noting the Biden administration had expanded parole processes for Haitiant migrants. "Those interdicted at sea are subject to immediate repatrization, and those encountered in the United States without a legal basis to remain are Subject to removal," they said. Meanwhile, more than nine in 10 Haitians seeking asylum in Mexico lack the resources to cover basic necessities such as food, shelter and medical care, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) aid group said on Thursday (Apr 27). Tens of thousands of haitans have been displaced in recent months as heavily armed Gangs have expanded their control over the country; there are frequent reports of kidnappings, sexual violence and violent turf wars. This month's head of Mexican refugee agency COMAR told Reuters that asylum claims by Haitiants were on track to surpass the record 52,000 recorded in 2021. But the IRC found through interviews with household leaders representing about 450 people that moreover 90 per cent lacked an ear to support essential needs.
