Sky News published this video item, entitled “U.S. border control whip and push Haitian refugees into Rio Grande” – below is their description.

Thousands of Haitian refugees fill the banks with the Rio Grande, desperately seeking asylum in America. Those who are lucky to cross the river risk being whipped and pushed back into the river by waiting U.S. border control.

The United States’ special envoy to Haiti has resigned over the “inhumane” expulsions of thousands of refugees from the US border.

Sky’s Greg Milam reports.

    Haiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti’s landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress.

    Jean-Jacques Dessalines (later Emperor Jacques I), defeated Napoleon Bonaparte’s forces and declared Haiti’s sovereignty on 1 January 1804.

    Haiti became the only state in history established by a successful slave revolt. Apart from Alexandre Pétion, the first President of the Republic, all of Haiti’s first leaders were former slaves.
