Description

The United States recently sought support from the U.N. Security Council for an armed intervention in Haiti to end what U.S. ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield has described as a situation of total chaos in the country. And yet U.S. officials seem unwilling to concede that deporting Haitian citizens to that same chaos—rampant gang violence that has been escalating for years, disastrous food and fuel shortages, a resurgent cholera epidemic—might be, to put it mildly, a moral failure.
