The United States warns that it will return Haitians who arrive by sea to its territory

The Secretary of Homeland Security of the United States, Alejandro Mayorkas, said that Haitians who arrive by sea on US soil will be returned, and that the Biden Government is not currently contemplating an expansion of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for these nationals in the country.
In an interview that will be published in full next Tuesday by the McClatchy group, owner of the Miami Herald, Mayorkas stressed that Haitians seeking to flee the gang violence that plagues the Caribbean nation should avoid traveling by sea to the United States.
Secretary Mayorkas also stressed that Joe Biden's Executive is not considering a “renewal or expansion” of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti.
This relief protects migrants from deportation and grants them work permission while they overcome political crises or natural disasters in their home countries.
Mayorkas reminded the Miami Herald that migrants from that nation who have been intercepted by the National Guard have already been returned to Haiti. This federal agency detained 65 Haitians on March 12 near Great Inagua, in the Bahamas.
Last March, some 13,000 Haitians were repatriated by neighboring countries, which is 46% more than in February, despite the escalation of insecurity and the worsening of the humanitarian situation, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). .
The repatriations from Haiti occur despite constant calls from international organizations and human rights organizations to avoid deportations, due to violence and the acute crisis in the country.
As part of the crisis, there are also almost 100,000 internally displaced people living in settlements, in “deplorable” conditions, with needs for food, medical care, water, psychological support and hygienic facilities, according to the IOM.
