Title 42 Lives on Despite Haitian American and White House Efforts to End It

— July 1, 2022

Deportation should not be taken lightly and should not be an option for those facing asylum.

Last September, Texas Immigration authorities planned to deport thousands of Haitian Immigrants. Haitian and African American activists and advocates in Georgia monitored the situation and claimed racist motives from the border officials. 

Within the span of seven days, disturbing videos and images of Border Patrol agents confronting Haitian migrants appeared on social media and went viral. One video even showed a border patrol officer charging at a Haitian migrant with his horse. Other photos have shown agents twirling their whips and swinging them towards migrants. 

Border Patrol agents enacted these actions under Title 42, which was set in place during the COVID-19 pandemic and lets authorities turn migrants away at the border while denying their asylum case. This policy was intended to limit the spread of COVID-19 but has been abused to purposefully seal the border. Despite efforts by the Biden administration to end Title 42, certain states sued to keep in in place and it looks like it will be in place for the foreseeable future.

Despite a 7.2 magnitude earthquake in August and a presidential assassination, the Department of Homeland Security planned to send three flights a day to Haiti, deporting over 14,000 Haitians.
