The U.S. and its neighbors repatriated thousands of Haitians over the last month as the violent turmoil and poverty afflicting the Caribbean nation fuels a migration crisis across the region. 
In a report released Wednesday, the International Organization of Migration, or IOM, said it provided assistance to 10,831 returned Haitian migrants from September 19 through October 19. Of those, 7,915 — or 75% — were deported from the U.S., followed by 1,194 from Cuba, 1,031 from the Bahamas, 248 from Mexico and 37 from Turks and Caicos. In addition, 406 were picked up at sea, the IOM said.
