|A SPECIAL SECTION: Haiti, Since the January 12, 2010 Fierce Earthquake|
Posted Friday, April 15, 2011
MIAMI (AP) — Immigration authorities have deported 19 Haitians previously convicted of crimes in the U.S.
It's the second such group of deportees since the devastating January 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement says all 19 Haitians deported Friday had been convicted of at least one serious felony offense.
The U.S. resumed deportations to Haiti on Jan. 20. They sent back 26 Haitians convicted of a crime and one acquitted in a 2007 terror plot but still deemed a national security threat.
One of the men deported in January died after suffering cholera-like symptoms in a Haitian jail. Immigration advocates, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and prominent Roman Catholic bishops say conditions in the struggling Caribbean country make it inhumane to deport people there.
