Description

Haitians seeking asylum in the United States (US) continue to be at risk of being expelled and sent back to a country in crisis. Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, has become a battleground between armed groups – thousands of people have fled their homes and many have extremely limited access to healthcare or basic services. More than 26,000 Haitians were expelled from the US between September 2021 and June 2022. In May alone, the US government expelled nearly 4,000 Haitians.
