Biden’s own special envoy to Haiti just quit over what he calls Biden’s ‘inhumane’ treatment of the Haitian illegals in Del Rio, Texas:
FOX NEWS – President Biden’s Special Envoy for Haiti Ambassador Daniel Foote resigned Thursday, saying he will not take part in the United States’ “inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees,” amid a surge in migrants from Haiti across the southern border.
In his resignation letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, first reported by PBS News Thursday, Foote said the Biden administration’s approach to Haiti “remains deeply flawed,” and said his recommendations have been “ignored and dismissed.”
“With deep disappointment and apologies to those seeking crucial changes, I resign from my position as Special Envoy for Haiti, effective immediately,” Foote, a career member of the foreign service, wrote. “I will not be associated with the United States inhumane, counterproductive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees and illegal immigrants to Haiti, a country where American officials are confined to secure compounds because of the danger posed by armed gangs in control of daily life.”
“Our policy approach to Haiti remains deeply flawed, and my recommendations have been ignored and dismissed, when not edited to project a narrative different than my own,” he added.
Foote was appointed to his post in July, following the assassination of Haiti’s president.
Foote, in his resignation letter, described the “suffering” of the people of Haiti, and said that the country “simply cannot support the forced infusion of thousands of returned migrants lacking food, shelter, and money without additional, avoidable human tragedy.”
“Surging migrants to our borders will only grow as we add to Haiti’s unacceptable misery,” he wrote.
A State Department spokesperson confirmed Foote’s resignation to Fox News, and thanked him for “his service in this role.”
Foote doesn’t like Biden’s decision to deport some of the Haitian illegals and that’s what this is really about.
But the point, at least for me, is that every time someone in the Trump administration resigned, the garbage media made a big damn deal about it, claiming it proved how horrible Trump was as a president. But as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, they will ignore this almost completely. It might get a mention here or there, but they surely won’t scandalize it as some indictment against Biden like they would have against Trump.
