U.S. Special Envoy for Haiti Resigns in Midst of Migrant Crisis

The U.S. special envoy for Haiti, Ambassador Daniel Foote, has resigned his post in protest over the Biden administration’s decision to conduct large-scale deportations in response to a surge of Haitian migrants.

In a letter dated Wednesday, two months from the date of his appointment, Mr. Foote wrote: “I will not be associated with the United States’ inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti,” calling attention to rampant gang violence in the country.
