The US should make and easier pathway for the Haitians to get political shelter in the United States. This request had been made by Several Haitian American legislators and groups in New York to President Biden.
New York State Assembly member Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn, chair of the Brooklyn Democratic Party, through a letter, said that the administration should make the pathway easier by lifting up the refugee admission ceiling and should temporarily halting the deportation of Haitian migrants. The Haitian should be given humanitarian aid, which would include food assistance and COVID-19 vaccine doses so that y this step, the spread should be mitigated.
According to the letter that has been signed by the New York State Assembly members Michaelle Solages and Kimberly Jean-Pierre; New York City Council Member Farah N. Louis; and Democratic Party nominees for New York City Council Rita Joseph and Chi Osse, they said that Haiti is going through the crisis so immediate attention should be put on them being Americans and show the continued action of the leadership.
The letter said that Haitian-Americans served en masse as health care workers and frontline essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then was the time to give back to their Haitian-American community. Then was the time to protect those who had rescued them by ensuring that the relatives of Haitian-Americans living abroad, received the humanitarian protections necessary to save their lives and livelihoods. The United States.p,p had a nation built by immigrants in pursuit of freedom, and the promise of a better life. Today, Americans had an opportunity to help the people of Haiti escape persecution.
The Officials who signed the letter said that they ask that they should employ the full powers of their office to raise the refugee admission ceiling from where that currently stands to help accommodate Haitian applicants. Temporarily halt the deportation of Haitian migrants from the US and supply the people of Haiti with humanitarian aid in the form of food assistance and additional COVID-19 doses.
