Throwing migrants back into a burning building

Dear Editor,

I listened with some distress to reports from a Miami Herald journalist about the anarchy in Haiti.

This is a country that is at best often on the verge of social and political chaos and weather disaster.

Since the late 1400s, it was forcibly inhabited with slaves and regularly razed by hurricanes, cyclones and earthquakes. There has been gross abuse of locals by aid organization employees, perpetual rotten governments and now raging gang violence.

When we are listening without flinching to reports of migrants being sent back, we must always remember that many of the horrors they are being sent back to have been created (or we failed to prevent them) by the wealthy West and this is tantamount to throwing children back into a burning building.
