#Haiti, January 15, 2023 – As of midnight on Monday, the last 10 senators in Haiti’s parliament stepped down from their position leaving the country without democratic rule.
Several gangs have assumed control of about two-thirds of the nation’s capital. Without a functioning democracy, regaining control of Port-au-Prince will prove futile.
The increase in gang violence has resulted in the closure of many hospitals and famine in several areas.  The hunger alert was raised to five in October last year as some 4.7 million people are facing hunger.
The World Food Program says this is a record high.
Former Prime Minister, Ariel Henry announced on New Year’s Day that a council would be formed to allow new elections. The proposal was rejected by several members of the Opposition as it is seen as illegitimate.

Western Union announced on Wednesday, their continuation of money transfers from the US to Cuba on a small scale.  The company’s remittance services were halted in 2020 with restrictions put in place by Donald Trump.  Some of these restrictions have been loosened since the Biden Administration assumed power.
President of Western Union in North America, Gabriella Fitzgerald explained that their services are important to maintain the connection between US citizens and their families in Cuba.
“We are delighted to offer this critical connection once again for our customers.”
Online transactions will not be permitted during this test phase and a $2000 limit has been placed on transfers.  Money can only be picked up with a Cuban ID.
Cuba’s economy, which took a hit during the pandemic, was also significantly impacted by the closure of Western Union’s services.  Reopening remittance transactions will help the island and its residents to recover economically.

#USA, January 15, 2023 – U.S. President, Joe Biden announced on January 3, 2023, that 30,000 people will be allowed entry monthly from Haiti, Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela.  Those selected will need a passport to enter, which has resulted in hundreds of Haitians gathering at immigration daily with the hope their name will be called.
Vehicle horns and people’s shouts echo in video currently making rounds on social media, where people are bombarding the office to get their passports.  The entire area is congested; vehicles are finding it difficult to seamlessly pass through.
The immigration plans require participants to work in the country for two years after the relevant background checks have been passed.
Among those at the immigration office was 30-year-old teacher, Jennyfer Leonard who said she wants to leave the country but refuses to risk her life by smuggling on boats like other Haitians.   Several boats carrying migrants have recently been stopped at the U.S. – Mexico border.
“Haiti is under siege…Gangs are taking over.   Why not leave if you get the opportunity?” said Garry Saint Paul, who also made reference to the recent resignation of the last remaining members of parliament.
