Absolutely Shameful! ICE Deports Haitians Despite Coronavirus Concerns
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Haitians are being deported back to their native island. Last Thursday, Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) deported almost 130 people. Advocates such as South Florida Congresswoman Fredrica Wilson called on congressional leaders to include in any future coronavirus stimulus efforts a proposal to halt deportations during the global pandemic. Although the ICE stated in March that it would delay most deportations because public safety was top priority, Haitian migrants are being deported. Congresswoman Fredrica Wilson spoke with Roland Martin about the Trump administrations shameful action against Haitians.
