Emergency Week of Action for Haitian Refugees
September 24 – October 2
Biden: Halt Your Racist Border Patrol
Stop the Whippings and Racist Deportations NOW!
Progressive organizations and activists in solidarity with Haitian refugees will hold protests around the country demanding the Biden administration end state terror at the border and deportations. In Texas, refugees face life-threatening conditions and brutal racist terror by U.S. policies and Klan-like Border Patrol agents.
-Immediate firing and prosecution of all those responsible for the whipping and hate speech used against Haitian refugees, witnessed by and documented in the videos of various news organizations, including Al Jazeera;
-Provide permanent shelter and health care, including access to COVID-19 vaccinations, to all arrivals at the border;
-Extend Temporary Protection Status indefinitely for those facing deportations;
-Provide asylum to all arrivals;
-End the use of Title 42 to deny humane immigration policies and its racist and selective use of justifying the denial for the majority of non-European peoples;
- Reparations not deportations!

“I’m having an issue verifying your employment as the US Surgeon General. I used both addresses provided and the US Dept of Health and Humans Services was unwilling to provide the verification,” the unidentified party wrote.
This lighthearted take underscores the absurdity of the government’s resistance to providing that information when it’s a matter of public record and easily verifiable.
It’s possible this is one of the many bureaucratic blunders that happen every day, like when living people are declared legally dead through a paperwork mixup.
But if what Adams is being told is true, this sounds very much like another ominous sign of what’s to come for anyone who holds the wrong political views — complete ostracization from society.
