February 4th According to Reuters on the 4th, the U.S. government expelled dozens of asylum seekers from Haiti on the 3rd, which seems to violate the repatriation policy agreement previously reached between the United States and Mexico.
The head of the Mexican state government confirmed the repatriation of immigrants by the U.S. government on the 4th.
Dozens of Haitian immigrants were reportedly deported after three or four days of detention by the U.S. Immigration Service.
One of the deportees said that the United States rejected their asylum applications and lost their clothes and children’s shoes. They had nothing when they were deported.
Previously, due to the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic around the world, the United States and Mexico reached an agreement in March 2020 to close part of the U.S.-Mexico border, and the United States could repatriate asylum seekers from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Salvador.
However, the coordinator of Mexican migrant shelters said that their region receives repatriates from Venezuela, Colombia and Peru on a daily basis, which do not fall within the scope of repatriation under the previous agreement.
The report also said that the number of immigrants repatriated has increased since Biden took office.
The Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the U.S. Immigration Service have not commented on this at present. Overseas Network Wang Xiaoyu)
