Biden’s envoy to Haiti resigns over Haitian deportations


Biden’s special envoy to Haiti resigned over the deporting of thousands of illegals back to the crisis-engulfed Caribbean nation from a camp on the U.S.-Mexican border in recent days.

Foote was named to his post in July. He said the “collapsed state” was unable to support the infusion of returning migrants.

“I will not be associated with the United States’ inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants,” Foote said in a letter addressed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken that circulated publicly on Thursday.

Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, has been hit in recent weeks by a presidential assassination, gang violence, and a major earthquake.

Most of the Haitians were from Chile, not Haiti. Watch:

Correction: The article was updated to reflect new information. Biden traded deportation to allow a dictator to take over Haiti.
