The Trump administration, which claims to be “pro-life,” is deporting thousands of immigrants — including those who have the coronavirus — to Haiti and Guatemala, causing a dangerous spread of COVID-19 in Central America and the Caribbean, reports Democracy Now:
In Guatemala, at least 117 people deported from the U.S. have tested positive for the virus as of May 4th, making up some 15% of Guatemala’s cases… Guatemala’s health minister, Hugo Monroy, has called the U.S. “the Wuhan of the Americas.”
A deportation flight from San Antonio, Texas, to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, departed with 50 passengers, who were sent to hotels to quarantine at the Haitian government’s expense upon arrival.
