Will Hillary Clinton Get Away with Haiti/Honduras Election Interference?

Haiti is currently facing an electoral crisis that can largely be attributed to Hillary Clinton. In 2010, Clinton pressured the Haitian president and electoral commission to change the election results in favor of now-ex-president Martelly. In today’s US elections, Clinton has managed to avoid any questions on her support of un-democratic governments in both Haiti and Honduras though both countries are still enduring the repercussions of her actions. Perhaps bringing such issues to light could help Haiti avoid repeating history, and help Haiti on the path of fair and democratic elections.

Hillary Clinton needs to answer for her actions in Honduras and Haiti

Karen Attiah, The Washington Post

March 10, 2016

If there was anything refreshing about Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Miami, it was that for once, questions on foreign affairs centered on a region other than the Middle East, China or Russia. Debate moderators asked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton tough questions on child deportations, as well as their policies on Cuba and Puerto Rico. Referring to the influx of unaccompanied minors, Sanders had this to say:

Honduras and that region of the world may be the most violent region in our hemisphere. Gang lords, vicious people torturing people, doing horrible things to families. Children fled that part of the world to try, try, try, try, maybe, to meet up with their family members in this country, taking a route that was horrific, trying to start a new life. Secretary Clinton did not support those children coming into this country. I did.

Sanders has a point — Clinton is on record saying deporting children would send a “responsible message” to families to deter them from coming into the United States. But when it comes to Honduras, Sanders as well as the moderators missed a key opportunity to bring up Clinton’s record in Central America and the Caribbean, and specifically how her State Department’s role in undemocratic regime changes has contributed to violence and political instability in Honduras and Haiti today.
