Rep. Pressley & Rep. Jones Demand Biden Administration End Title 42, Cease Deportations to Haiti

Today, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) and Congressman Mondaire Jones (NY-17) sent a letter calling on Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky to fully end Title 42, cease deportations of people to Haiti and affirm their legal and fundamental human right to seek asylum.

Their letter follows the Biden Administration’s recent suspension of deportation flights to Ukraine in recognition of the humanitarian crisis there and as the Administration hits a grim milestone of expelling over 20,000 Haitians– two-thirds of whom were forcibly removed under the Title 42 policy – despite the danger, instability and political violence on the island.
