Bidens Support For A Haitian Dictator Is Solid Proof He Puts Politics Above Everything Else

A Road To Dialogue After Nicaragua S Crushed Uprising Crisis Group

Here is the strongest evidence yet that President Joe Biden cares more about politics than “democracy.” When a photo of 17,000 immigrants under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas last year became too embarrassing, the president relied on my work, and I am a de facto Haitian. His desire to banish the dictator.

Daniel Foot, Biden’s former special envoy for Haiti, said the White House agreed with Dr. He supported Ariel Henry, who took power after President Jovenel Moise was assassinated, largely because Henry was willing to take back thousands of Haitians who had illegally crossed the American border. And Biden helped change that, says Todd Bensman in the Washington Post.

With US support, Henry, who is said to have been close to the alleged killers, abdicated his duty to hold a new election. Haiti’s legislature and supreme court were shaky, and there were no internal checks on Henry’s power.

In fact, he became a dictator. Tim Biden looked away the whole time.

Ba said the image of Haitian immigrants (along with shots by border guards on horseback) was an “undemocratic transfer of American power” to quell the PR fire that had been stoked by highlighting the failure of Biden’s border policy.

Addressing the backlash was especially important because Biden’s recent chaotic departure from Afghanistan hurt him so badly.

In a tragic irony, the political pressure that Biden has increased in Haiti is making his victims more willing to act, exacerbating the border crisis. Biden’s claim that he wants to address the “root causes” that drive immigrants to leave.

else. In late September, the White House sent back 9,000 Haitians from Texas to Haiti, although border officials largely turned away all other arrivals, most of whom were Latinos. He has subjected Biden to accusations of racism, but that was clearly worth the risk.

Growing discontent eventually halted the deportations. . . But when the number of Haitians began to increase again in December, flights resumed. Another 10,000 Haitians returned between January and April.

For Haiti, democracy did not matter to Biden, and the “root causes” were not addressed. His policy of open borders to bury evidence of chaos trumps everything else.

Of course, he could change that policy, but his political needs prevented that as well.
