Politically Inconvenient Haitians

The flood of Haitians at Texas’ southern border has been a big deal lately. As always, my burning question is “who’s driving that migration bus?” While I didn’t find that answer today, I did find an explanation for Traitor Mayorkas’ curious decision to deport them back to Haiti: they’re the wrong kind of Haitian. The kind of Haitian that does not like Communism.

We know already that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas love Communism even more than he loves exterminating white people, as evidenced by Cubans fleeing Communism being the first group he threatened against trying to enter the United States. He won’t win if Commie-hating whites get replaced by Commie-hating browns; he’d just have a new enemy to fight, one with fewer scruples against Colombian neckties for crooked politicians.

Exclusive: U.S. border authorities warn of food insecurity in Haiti, as Mayorkas defends deportations

While the Biden administration has defended its decision to deport thousands to Haiti in recent days, internal government documents obtained by Yahoo News suggest U.S. immigration authorities are closely monitoring the bleak conditions to which Haitians expelled from the U.S. are being forced to return.

On Sunday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s office of intelligence highlighted concerns of widespread food insecurity in Haiti in its daily report on current and emerging threats.

Translation, Mayorkas’ allies are surprised by his unexpected decision to cooperate with the expulsion of Haitians and are throwing smoke in hopes that he will change his mind if he’s shown a good opportunity. The buzzword “food insecurity” is like Karl Marx’s fingerprint.

“On 24 September, Haitian authorities indicated about 4.3 million people are in a state of serious food insecurity,” reads the CBP bulletin, which was marked unclassified and “Law Enforcement Sensitive.” The alert cites an article from a Spanish-language news site reporting that, according to Haiti’s National Food Safety Coordination agency, “insecurity, poor production, natural disasters and inflation are the main drivers of current levels of severe food insecurity” on the island, while “gang violence has complicated the delivery of humanitarian response to the food crisis.”

That sounds like every day in Haiti. Welcome to the jungle, we got fun and games…

The reports highlighted by CBP’s intelligence office seem to contradict public statements made by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has defended recent deportations of Haitian migrants despite concerns about conditions in the country following the president’s assassination in July and a devastating earthquake in August.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, since Sept. 19 the U.S. has expelled approximately 3,900 individuals to Haiti on 37 flights.

“We have continued to study the conditions in Haiti, and we have in fact determined, despite the tragic and devastating earthquake, that Haiti is in fact capable of receiving individuals,” Mayorkas told reporters at the White House on Friday. “And we are working with Haiti and with humanitarian relief agencies to ensure that their return is as safe and humanely accomplished as possible.”

Hmm, which is it? Is Haiti functional today or not? (Trick question. It never was.)

Back in May, Mayorkas designated Haiti for Temporary Protected Status, citing the country’s “serious security concerns, social unrest, an increase in human rights abuses, crippling poverty, and lack of basic resources, which are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.” Under the new, 18-month designation, eligible Haitian nationals already living in the United States could apply for protected status, which would shield them from deportation “until conditions in Haiti improve so they may safely return home.”

Two months later, Mayorkas expanded this designation to include Haitians who have continuously resided in the U.S. since July 29 of this year, “in light of recent events in Haiti, including the July assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.”

And now he’s sending them back home? Mayorkas suddenly doing his job is like a demon suddenly telling the truth… don’t drop your guard, instead do your homework twice.

While Mayorkas has acknowledged his earlier decision that Haitian nationals could not be sent back to the country safely, he insists that is no longer the case — even after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the country on Aug. 14, killing at least 2,200 people and leaving thousands more homeless.

Again, WHICH IS IT? If Haiti wasn’t safe before that last quake then it didn’t become safe afterward. Certainly not since its leader got vaxxed.

The key to this puzzle is that the Haitians at the Texas border didn’t come from Haiti.

They came from Chile.

Why Haitians are fleeing Chile for the U.S. border

SANTIAGO, Chile — Along empty streets lined with shuttered businesses, there’s little sign of the bustle that just a few a years ago earned the neighborhood of Quilicura the nickname “Little Haiti.”

Increasingly restrictive migration policies here, and a belief that the United States has grown more welcoming to immigrants under President Biden, have led a wave of Haitians to abandon the country they once saw as a land of opportunity.

“There’s hardly anyone left here now,” said 24-year-old Wilbert Pierre, pointing across the dusty road into the Tawtaw barbershop, where he is training to be a hairdresser. “Of all the people I’ve known in my four years in Chile, more than 100 have gone to the U.S. since March alone.”

Tens of thousands of Haitians came to Chile, Brazil and other South American nations after the 2010 earthquake near Port-au-Prince that killed more than 220,000 people. Now feeling growing pressure here, thousands in recent months have traveled north. After spending months in southern Mexico, they began moving toward the U.S. border this month by the busload. An estimated 14,000 gathered at a camp in Del Rio, Tex.

And what was causing them to feel that migratory pressure?

The government has announced that on Oct. 17 it will close its “regularization” window for migrants, which had allowed anyone who entered Chile at an official border crossing before March 18, 2020, when the coronavirus arrived in the country, to gain legal status here.

But the process required applicants to show copies of their criminal records — a relatively simple procedure in most countries, but a long and costly one for Haitians living abroad. Many have given up on settling permanently.

Snicker. “Welcome Haitian refugees! Come as you are! Just bring a copy of your criminal record and if it’s clean, you’re good to go… yep, that’s all it took.”

“It’s often easier to buy bullets than food in Haiti,” [said Emmanuel Louis, a 36-year-old artist from Port-au-Prince]. “We were looking for somewhere safe to raise our son, so we came to Chile — the ‘oasis’ of South America.

“But we found that although Chileans themselves are good people, the system is racist, classist and elitist.”

Well, at least it wasn’t Venezuela.

Oh, wait.

A 2018 decree differentiated visas according to nationality. As Venezuela lurched deeper into political and economic chaos, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera created a new visa specifically for Venezuelans.

So, the window for the Haitians to go local has closed and the country… newly Socialist, if I’ve read the news reports correctly… wait, are they? I remember they were regime-changing then Coof happened…

Segue

h ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_Chilean_Constitutional_Convention_election

An election for the members of the Constitutional Convention was held in Chile between 15 and 16 May 2021. This election was called after 78% of voters in the 2020 national plebiscite voted to write a new Constitution through this method.

After massive protests and riots sparked in October 2019, an agreement was reached on 15 November 2019 between several political parties to start the process to write a new Constitution… This election was originally scheduled for 25 October 2020, six months after the first referendum. However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in Chile… to 15 and 16 May 2021.

For the first time, 17 reserved seats were established for the 10 official indigenous groups.

That’s a red flag.

Also, different mechanisms in the inscription of candidates and the election system itself were designed to ensure gender parity in the Convention, being the first assembly of this kind in the world with equal representation of men and women.

That’s a red sucking chest wound. They might be Socialist but they’re certainly feminist, and by extension Globohomo whether they know it or not.

Although Chile Vamos, the governing alliance, was the most voted list in the country, it represented the lowest results in Chilean modern history for right-wing politics, not even reaching the third of members needed to veto in the Convention. The successor to Concertación, the main centre-left alliance, finished in fourth place, being surpassed by the alliance made by the leftist Communist Party and the Broad Front. The List of the People, an anti-establishment list of independent candidates, finished in third place.

End segue

So, Chile is swinging hard-Left and what a surprise, they revamped their migration policies to favor Venezuelans in order to stack the deck.

Which means that all those Haitians fleeing Chile… are fleeing the Left.

And Mayorkas decided to give them the Cuban treatment.

The United States has deported thousands, not back to the South American nations they left but to Haiti, a country reeling from a presidential assassination and another earthquake on top of endemic poverty and gang violence.

I dug further because I could be wrong. Globalism is horrible… I need to have opinions about faraway places that I’d have trouble finding on a map, let alone comprehend how their problems are affecting my people, most of whom aren’t my people anyway. This article:

‘They yell ugly things’: Migrants in Chile’s north fearful after fiery protests

h ttps://www.reuters.com/world/americas/they-yell-ugly-things-migrants-chiles-north-fearful-after-fiery-protests-2021-09-27/

SANTIAGO, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Venezuelan migrants in Iquique in northern Chile have been shaken by a series of angry protests by locals against settler camps which have popped up in city squares and even beaches, a reflection of simmering tensions over migration in the region.

On the weekend thousands of local Chileans marched with anti-immigration slogans and set fire to belongings of Venezuelan migrants, tossing clothes and mattresses in bonfires in the street, after a camp was cleared by police on Friday.

“They yell at us, ‘Go back to your country. What are you doing here?’ They yell at us a lot of ugly things,” said Jaqueline Rojas, a Venezuelan in the city.

“It makes us sad, because the truth is that we are not all the same. There are some people who come to do bad things and others who come to look for work. I am going south to look for work, with my daughter and my brother.”

Despite pandemic restrictions, many migrants from Venezuela and elsewhere keep trying to reach Chile, one of the wealthiest countries in the region, which has been rocked in recent years by protests over entrenched inequality.

Then again, Globalism means we all face a single enemy. That preceding sounds so very, very familiar to this Californian. Maybe I DO have common ground with the Chileans.

Migration in Latin America has come under the spotlight recently, after large numbers of Haitian migrants, many whom had been living in Brazil and Chile, formed an large impromptu border camp at the Mexican-U.S. border.

In the coastal city of Iquique, more than 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) north of Santiago, hundreds of migrants had settled in tents in a city square last week, while deciding their final destination, often the country’s capital.

“This is better than being in Venezuela. Venezuela you have your home and everything you want, but you don’t have means to feed your children, dress them, or give them a good education,” Wendy González, leader of a makeshift camp, said last week.

In an operation on Friday, local police carried out evictions on the square. The Chilean government has been carrying out controversial expulsions of illegal immigrants in an attempt to discourage the arrival of new waves of families.

Juana Rodriguez, a Chilean resident in Iquique, said many locals felt anger over jobs and alleged that migrants to the country were simply asking for handouts.

Maybe USA and Chile share the same problem of a Socialist government that hates its people, and a people responding by rediscovering their inner nationalist. Which in turn explains why neither nation wants the burned-by-Socialists Haitians.
