The Biden administration is using a visa program to help government leaders and law enforcement flee Haiti, leaving the nation under the control of violent gang wars.
The program was launched under the direction of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in January.

"Each month, roughly 8,000 Haitians have been getting the visas, courtesy of Biden’s Cuban-born, pro-migration border chief, Mayorkas," Breitbart News reported.
"The visa has extracted many police officers as well as thousands of professionals and political leaders from Haiti," it added.

"Henry and foreign diplomats assigned to Port-au-Prince say a U.S. humanitarian parole program that allows Haitians to migrate to the United States if they have a financial sponsor is encouraging police officers to leave Haiti," the Miami Herald reported.
"While the Department of Homeland Security has declined to say how many Haitian police officers have entered the U.S. under the program, launched by the Biden administration in January, the agency has said that some 63,000 Haitians have been vetted and approved to enter the U.S. and 50,000 have already done so," it continued.
The number includes about 800 police officers in the nation who are already suffering from gang control in the capital city of Port-au-Prince.
"From October 2020 through May 2023, U.S. authorities encountered Haitians at the U.S. southwest border nearly 146,000 times. From October 2022 through mid-June 2023, the U.S. Coast Guard interdicted more than 4,600 Haitian migrants at sea," Migration Policy reported.
"As of mid-February [through July], more than 5,000 Haitians arrived through a new humanitarian parole program that allows people in the United States to sponsor arrivals coming by plane, which has prompted the exceptional demand for Haitian passports," it noted.
President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated in July 2021, leading to chaos in the nation. Even before the tragic killing, more than half of the nation lived in poverty, with gang battles spreading violence in the capital city and beyond.
The latest report shows that the Biden administration has appeared to allow many leaders to escape to the U.S., including those needed to help settle unrest in Haiti. The result may backfire for the island nation, adding to violence rather than helping to provide peace and stability for the Haitian people.
