Action Alert - Haiti

Over the past several weeks, deportation flights to Haiti have accelerated. Just in the week leading up to Christmas, 344 Haitians including 32 children were deported from the U.S. The Biden Administration has deported about 14,000 Haitians. The U.S. Administration claims that conditions in Haiti are improving and that returning Haitians face fewer dangers. We know this is not true. NGO's such as the SSND partner in Haiti, Beyond Borders, as well as women religious working in Haiti testify to the deteriorating political, economic, and social conditions in this besieged island nation. SSNDs have a special relationship with Haiti through our SSND partnership work with Beyond Borders on the island of Lagonav. It is incumbent upon us, as witnesses to the suffering of the Haitian people, to urge our Senators and Congresspersons to insist that the Biden Administration end deportation flights to Haiti.
