"This is the gold standard of how everyone should be treated," UndocuBlack's National Director of Policy and Advocacy Haddy Gassama wrote in an op-ed. "So, we're putting into question why Black migrants, in particular, are not allotted the same level of empathy and humanity."
One of the more telling responses to the humanitarian crisis at the nation's southern border has been how right-wing conservatives have embraced Border Patrol despite -- or because -- its agents used horse reins to whip Haitian migrants.
An expert on refugee law and policy unpacks what went on at the U.S. border and whether the Biden administration is shirking its moral and legal obligations in deporting the Haitian migrants.
Despite a seemingly neverending string of tragedies that have left its people desperate for help, data shows that the U.S. grants asylum to Haitians at the lowest rate among people from any other nationality who are similarly seeking refuge.
In a stunning reversal, Haitian migrants who gathered in Texas to seek asylum were reportedly not facing deportations and being allowed to stay in the U.S. after outrage grew from Border Patrol agents on horseback appearing to whip them.
Tamika Mallory delivered a veritable sermon live on her Instagram responding to the devastating images of Border Patrol agents appearing to use whips from horseback in order to corral Haitian migrants attempting to cross into the U.S. from Mexico.
Mainstream media has saturated photos of thousands of Haitian migrants seeking asylum gathered in Del Rio, Texas, but few outlets have shown Border Patrol on horseback hunting down the migrants to deport them in pictures that evoke images of slavery.
