Description:

The recent instability in Haiti brought about by the assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July and an earthquake that killed over 2,000 people and injured 12,000 more in August, contributed to thousands of Haitian people seeking asylum at the U.S. border this fall. Many people arriving at the border faced a chaotic and even violent response to their arrival and were denied the chance to seek asylum.  

Boston has the third-largest population of Haitian immigrants of all U.S. cities and many more Haitians have migrated here in the wake of these events. This expert panel provides a local perspective on the repercussions of this crisis and discuss the historical context that led us here, what unfolded at the border, and the legal action being taken in response.
