Haitian President Jovenel Moise was assassinated, further illustrating the credible fear over conditions of insecurity that are forcing thousands of Haitian citizens to make their way to the U.S. in search of asylum. Immigration advocacy organizations sent a letter to Biden and top members of his administration warning of a “political vacuum” left by Moise’s murder could exacerbate violence. The letter says armed gangs control many streets, and kidnap civilians, including schoolchildren and church pastors. In May, DHS announced a new TPS status for Haiti for 18 months. However, this designation only included Haitians already in the U.S. as of May 21, 2021.
