Senator James Sanders Jr. Condemns Border Guard Use of Whip on Haitian Migrants
From The Office Of State Senator James Sanders

State Senator James Sanders
State Senator James Sanders Jr. said: “I am disgusted and appalled by the video footage showing Border Patrol whipping their reigns at Haitian migrants near the U.S. Mexico border, a clear violation of human rights and domestic and international law.

The last time we saw white men whipping black people in such a public horrendous fashion was during the Jim Crow era and the subsequent separation and dehumanization that followed. Later during the first half of the twentieth century, blacks were separated from whites in ghettos to control their growing population in what is considered American Apartheid. Now, not much has not changed. The images are very much the same.

The actions on that video U.S. Mexico border was not an example of how Americans, particularly those in power, should treat their fellow human beings.

Parents Improve Your Children's Reading Skills


Rosa Higgs, a teacher from Berkeley, California, who has proven why phonics instruction matters. Her phonics workbook series, entitled Read in 40 Hours or Less, are designed to help Black students learn to read well and beyond grade level in less than 40 hours of direct instruction.

Across the country, students are experiencing a K-12 crisis in reading skills. In the state of California, millions of dollars are spent every year on education, but students and teachers are overwhelmed by COVID-19 and distance learning and the lack of improved reading skills for many vulnerable Black students proves it.

The coronavirus was a test of America’s ability to provide quality and equitable education to all students. The virus wrecked the school system with unfathomable momentum highlighting known disparities of Black students' access to computers, the internet, trauma, and basic needs such as food and adequate shelter. The Read in 40 Hours or Less workbook series can take schools from inadequate to extraordinary by improving reading skills for our vulnerable Black and Brown students.

Article & Video On NYS Senator James Sanders Condemning The Whipping Of Haitians On The Border Continues Below...

We are a country of immigrants with many of those of Haitian descent live in the district I represent. Our Haitian brothers and sisters are desperately trying to flee the poverty and violence in their own country, and deserve to be treated with respect. They are still recovering from an earthquake and the assassination of their President Jovenel Moïse, who was killed in his private residence in the capital, Port-au-Prince, on July 7, 2021, causing political turmoil and upheaval.

On August 14, 2021 a devastating earthquake struck Haiti, leaving more than 650,000 people in need of emergency humanitarian assistance. This comes as the island nation is still trying to recover from a massive earthquake in 2010 that displaced more than 1.5 million people. Many left and headed for South and Central America, but now employment opportunities are drying up in Latin America as the pandemic continues and Haitian migrants are seeking asylum in the United States.

These tough and resilient people have been struck down so many times yet they continue to seek a better life for themselves and their families only to be met by whip wielding border patrol when they get to the United States. Can you imagine the devastation and humiliation they must have felt?

Worse still, President Biden went back on his word. It was only a few months ago that he said our country would welcome the Haitian people when the Department of Homeland Security designated Haiti for temporary protected status, a designation given when there are conditions of extreme political upheaval, conflict, or natural disasters. Our government said point blank that Haiti was not a safe place.

Temporary protected status was extended and expanded for Haitians just five weeks ago, but now 14, 000 Haitians are being expelled, almost the same number at the Del Rio encampment, citing Title 42 of the Constitution - removal by the U.S. government of persons who have recently been in a country where a communicable disease was present. I understand the health concern, but these people can be vaccinated and quarantined before entering the United States.

I intend on writing to President Biden and asking that the Haitian people be treated with the same care and compassion as we hope the Afghan refugees entering our country should receive.”
