Video: Haitians Protest New Deportations

About two dozen Haitian Americans protested new deportations of alleged criminals outside the immigration building on Northwest Seventh Avenue this morning. Authorities had suspended the flights for more than a month after a 34-year-old Haitian American man with only minor crimes on his record had died days after arriving on the island. Today's protest was led by activist Marleine Bastien, who speaks in the video. I wrote a column about a month ago on the deportations, pointing out disparities and describing the criminal backgrounds of a couple.
