Haitian Deportation Resumes

December 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

MIAMI (AP) — U.S. immigration authorities will resume deporting some Haitians back to the struggling Caribbean country. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said Friday that the U.S. expects to begin flying deportees with criminal records back to Haiti in January in coordination with Haiti’s government. Gonzalez says ICE is must deport people with criminal records or release them “if their repatriation is not reasonably foreseeable.” The U.S. temporarily stopped deporting Haitians after the Jan. 12 earthquake. Advocates and immigration attorneys say conditions in Haiti have not improved enough for deportations to resume. A cholera outbreak began in October, and the State Department on Thursday issued a travel warning for Haiti because of political unrest.
