US Denies Paying Haiti to Take Back Migrants

VOA says the Biden administration acknowledged Wednesday that it sent $5.5 million to Haiti to help support asylum-seekers deported from Del Rio, Texas, but it rejected reports that it had “paid” Haiti to take back the rejected migrants.

“That is not true,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in response to VOA’s question about the reports, which had gone viral on Haitian social media. “We, of course, have been providing a broad range of humanitarian assistance.”

A State Department spokesperson told VOA that the U.S. money would go to support a U.N. agency that is helping the 4,000 deportees through their first days back in Haiti.
