Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has urged the Biden administration to stop its deportation of Haitian immigrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing that the decision to return them to Port-au-Prince “defies common sense.”
Mr. Schumer said, “The images of Haitian migrants being hit with whips and other form of physical violence is completely unacceptable.”
He added, “This behavior must be addressed, and we must provide accountability.”
“The images turn your stomach,” he said.
“The policies that are being enacted now and the horrible treatment of these innocent people who have come to the border must stop immediately,” Schumer said.
