Conditions on the ground are dire for the thousands of Haitian migrants being forced to return to their homeland from the Americas, many of them “empty handed”, and bewildered. 

That’s according to Giuseppe Loprete, chief of the International Organization for Migration's (IOM) Mission in Haiti, who told UN News that around 5,500 people have been forcibly returned since 19 September, with thousands more expected in the days ahead.  

Those being expelled from the US border area and flown home, often after spending years away, are returning to a land facing multiple crises, Mr. Loprete told Leda Letra, including a recent devastating earthquake, rampant gang violence and the COVID-19 pandemic.
