The protesters called for the end of deportations, the Muslim travel ban, and discrimination against undocumented immigrants. They spoke in support of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and TPS (Temporary Protected Status) for countries like El Salvador and Haiti. (Fibonacci Blue via Wikimedia Commons)

The U.S. federal government will reportedly remove about 14,000 asylum-seeking Haitian migrants from Texas and return them to Haiti. What are your thoughts?

So let me get this straight: America can take in 20,000 Afghanistan refugees who are seeking asylum from their war-torn country, but Haiti was hit with a major natural disaster — out of their control — and America is sending them back? Biden administration, please explain.

I knew the migration into America would change once the Haitians and Africans began to caravan to our borders! The government has changed the game now. If Black leaders care so much about illegal immigrants and their families being treated badly, now is the time to speak out about these people of color as well! Get them into the country and provide for them too! There are children amongst these people who should not be turned away.

What in the world? Haiti had a bad storm and they should stay just like those coming across the border.

A. Mahdi, Washington, D.C.
This is beyond heartbreaking. Sending healing energy and praying for God’s grace for those displaced Haitians. This isn’t right at all.

Millie Burrell, Atlanta
Are they putting people from other countries on planes, too? Is this move only for Haitians? Why?
