Haiti’s Race Against the Clock

PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti – Haiti is currently making global headlines for all the wrong reasons; it is experiencing a multi-dimensional crisis including an upsurge in violence, a lack of fuel which is crippling many key services and the August earthquake which killed around 2,200 people and left hundreds of thousands in need.

Senate Republicans Block This Generation’s Voting Rights Act: Will President Biden Meet the Challenge?

Across the country, Republican state legislators have been busy imposing new voting restrictions and devising corrupt redistricting schemes to give their party more power than they could win under a fair system.

Haiti’s Systemic Crisis Worsened by US Policy

It’s difficult to forget the scenes of black Haitian refugees at the US-Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas being attacked by United States border agents on horseback as they scrambled to get food to their ailing and hungry families just feet away; or images of cold and dying Haitian men as they collapsed under the Del Rio International Bridge at this contentious border.

In September, thousands of Haitian asylum seekers crossed the Del Rio river back into Mexico as US border agents began to deport immigrants. (John Moore/Getty Images)
