“Barbara Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said 27 Haitian nationals with criminal records in the United States had been returned to their homeland. They were the first of about 700 Haitians classified as “criminal aliens” who have been targeted for removal to the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country this year, Gonzalez said in an email response to Reuters. “These are the first removals since they were suspended last year,” Gonzalez said, confirming the end of a moratorium on such deportations declared immediately after the January 12, 2010 quake. “All of those removed were men, who had been previously convicted of a crime in the U.S.,” she said.”
“Immigrant advocates say political unrest and cholera in Haiti make it inhumane to deport people there. But the United States announced last month that it would resume deporting those convicted of violent crimes who had served their time. Marleine Bastien, executive director of Haitian Women of Miami, called the deportations “inhumane and very insensitive.” The man acquitted in the Sears Tower case, Lyglenson Lemorin, was among a group sent back to Haiti on Thursday, his lawyer said. Officials say he remained a security threat.”
“Cheryl Little, executive director of the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, a nonprofit law firm, said the Haitian deportees were being sent back to a “death trap.” “Why is it so urgent for the U.S. to deport Haitians when Haiti remains in ruin?” she said. According to the firm, deportees sent to Haiti who have a criminal history are routinely held in inhumane jail conditions, not fed or provided medical care. “Whether or not they have served a criminal sentence, no Haitian should be sent to a cholera-infested jail where they risk death,” the organization said in a statement.”
