Biden Administration’s Dangerous Haitian Expulsion Strategy Escalates the U.S. History of Illegal and Discriminatory Mistreatment of Haitians Seeking Safety in the United States

September 21, 2021

This fact sheet from Human Rights First and Haitian Bridge Alliance (the Bridge) examines the response of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Biden Administration toward the predominantly Haitian migrants and asylum-seekers who crossed into the United States near Del Rio, Texas in August/September 2021. It also compares the current situation to the approach the United States has historically adopted toward Haitian immigrants and asylum seekers.

The Invisible Wall: Title 42 and its Impact on Haitian Migrants

March 25, 2021

The Haitian Bridge Alliance, the Quixote Center and UndocuBlack have written this Report to offer the voices and hardships of Haitian migrants, mostly families, who have been expelled under the Title 42 policy. The Report provides the narratives of seven Haitian families who were apprehended at the U.S. Mexico border within the last year and were subject to expulsion to Haiti or Mexico under the Title 42 policy. Two additional narratives are included of Haitians who entered the United States before March 2020, but who were recently removed. This Report shows how Haitian migrants flee violence, instability and persecution in Haiti, travel a long and treacherous journey to the U.S.-Mexico border seeking safety and security in the United States, only to be abused by ICE and CBP officers and - under the Title 42 policy - summarily expelled back to the country they fled without even access to a lawyer or the opportunity to seek asylum or other protection.The authors offer nine recommendations, first and foremost, that the Title 42 policy be revoked immediately. Other recommendations include that ICE and CBP follow public health experts' advice by adopting a wide range of safety measures to mitigate public health risks to border agents. Lastly, the authors recommend that asylum processing be resumed while releasing migrants to shelter in place with their loved ones in the United States rather than detaining them.

La Révolution haïtienne de 1804, entre Marxisme et Décolonialité

January 2, 2021

Cet article discute en marge de l'ouvrage de Jean Casimir, Une lecture décoloniale de l'histoire des Haïtiens, les conditions d'une analyse marxiste de la Révolution haïtienne de 1804. Il interroge le « rejet » par les études décoloniales des pensées marxistes pour repenser cet événement radical. Nous postulons une « rencontre épistémique » entre les marxismes et les études décoloniales afin de cerner les enjeux capital-travail de cette Révolution et aussi ses antécédents coloniaux déployés comme la face cachée de la Modernité. Nous tenons à expliquer l'absence de références marxistes, notamment des Jacobins Noirs de CLR James, dans l'excellent ouvrage de Casimir qui propose d'inverser les méthodes d'intelligibilité de cette Révolution. Que pourrait rapporter à Casimir les travaux de CLR James, d'Etienne Charlier et de Michel Hector dans son étude novatrice sur la Révolution haïtienne de 1804?
