In 2021, viral photos showed US immigration authorities violently dispersing a group of Haitian asylum-seekers at the Southern U.S. border on horseback – images that triggered the historical memory of slave patrols for people the world over. This inhumane treatment is not only horrific — it’s a violation of international law and the right of people to seek asylum.
Since then, the treatment of Haitian asylum-seekers has only worsened. Amnesty has documented human rights violations by U.S. authorities, including lack of access to asylum processes, chaining and shackling of Haitian asylum-seekers separating children from parents, and denying interpreters and legal representation.
This treatment amounts to race-based torture, rooted in systemic anti-Black discrimination.
The US government must end racist immigration policies and restore access to asylum now.
If you are talented and passionate about human rights then Amnesty International wants to hear from you.
