68-Page Report Calls for a Stop to U.S. Deportations of Haitians

The University of Miami School of Law and the University of Chicago School of Law, in collaboration with other human rights groups, have published a 68-page report calling for the U.S. government to stop deportations of Haitians with a criminal record. Based upon extensive fieldwork and research, the report documents the struggles that deported Haitians, and the families they are forced to leave behind, face in a post-earthquake Haiti. Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat wrote the foreword to the report, expressing her concerns about the “continuing humanitarian, and increasingly political, crisis in Haiti” and its implications for deported Haitians.
