U.S. officials said on Thursday that the Biden administration’s special envoy for Haiti resigned in protest against the “inhumane” mass deportation of Haitian immigrants to their homes because Haiti was damaged by civil strife and natural disasters.
Daniel Foote was named to the post in July after the assassination Giovinel Moise, the Haitian president. Even before the immigrants were expelled from the Texas border town of Del Rio, the professional diplomat was deeply frustrated by his perception of Washington’s lack of urgency and the slowness of efforts to improve conditions in Haiti.
Fu wrote an open letter to Anthony Brinken, Secretary of State. Fu expressed disappointment and apologies to all those seeking major changes.
“I won’t be associated with the inhumane, counterproductive decision by the United States to deport thousands Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants. Armed groups pose a risk to daily life, and American officials are kept in a safe compound. He said. Write. Write.
The State Department condemned Foote’s resignation at an important moment and rejected his claim that his policy recommendations were ignored.
Ned Price, a spokesperson for the State Department, stated in writing that “this is a difficult time that requires leadership.” “Unfortunately Foote’s envoy was not able to participate in the solution-oriented policies process. Instead, he resigned and misrepresented his resignation.”
He said that the president’s advisor is responsible for providing him with the best advice. Price stated, “No idea can be ignored. But not all ideas make good ideas.”
Foote’s sudden departure left a gap in U.S. policy toward Haiti-U.S. After being nominated to another post in the State Department, Ambassador Michel Sisson will likely leave soon. This is to allow the government to fight in Texas. Another voice was heard by Haitians who camped at the border’s border.
Online, images of border officers using aggressive tactics on horseback to attack immigrants were circulated this week. Democrats and many promigrant groups believe that attempts to expel thousands from Haiti without giving them an opportunity to seek asylum are against American principles.
The number of immigration camps has shrunk significantly since Saturday’s expulsion of more than 14,000 people. Many have been deported and others have been allowed to return to the United States. The immigration authorities were notified.
