The Biden Administration’s Special Envoy for Haiti has now turned in a stunning resignation letter to the President in which they blasted the administration for its treatment of Haitian refugees currently camped out under a bridge in Texas.
As MSN reports:
The U.S. special envoy for Haiti has quit his job in a blistering resignation letter saying he could not be associated with the Biden administration’s decision to deport thousands of Haitian migrants to their home country, a move he called “inhumane” given the deteriorating security situation in the country.
“Our policy approach to Haiti remains deeply flawed, and my recommendations have been ignored and dismissed,” Daniel Foote said in the letter addressed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Wednesday.
“I will not be associated with the United States inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti, a country where American officials are confined to secure compounds because of the dangers posed by armed gangs in control of daily life,” he said.
Foote was named special envoy in July just weeks after the assassination of Haiti’s president plunged the country into political turmoil.
Haitian has recently been plunged into chaos after the shocking assassination of its President, in addition to mass food shortages after a devastating earthquake in August.
