As the political and economic situation continues to deteriorate in Haiti facilitating massive human rights violations, kidnappings, and generalized violence, tens of thousands of Haitians are moving across the Americas in search of safety. But states across the region are failing to provide it. This briefing illustrates that countries are limiting access to international protection and failing to shield Haitians from a range of human rights violations in host countries, including detention and unlawful pushbacks, extortion, anti-black racism, abuses including gender-based violence by armed groups, and destitution. States urgently need to provide Haitians with protection measures including asylum and other routes to legal residency so they can re-build their lives in safety.
