The Crisis of Haitians at the US-Mexico Border

24 September 2021

We in the Small Axe Project deplore in the strongest moral terms the slave-era-like treatment of Haitians trying to cross the border into the United States from Mexico. Ordinary men, women, and children fleeing political instability, economic misery, and quasi-natural catastrophes ought never to be treated as though there were "No Humans Involved" (as Sylvia Wynter might have said). There is a history here in which the dark hand of the United States is deeply implicated, and therefore responsible.
