My heart breaks over the devastation in Haiti following the deadly earthquake this weekend. ⁰⁰I pray for the safety, recovery, and health of all those affected and remain committed to doing all we can to support Haiti's full economic and political recovery.— Congresswoman Cori Bush (@RepCori) August 16, 2021
Congresswoman Cori Bush is getting national attention (and here). She took a courageous stand on evictions and changed the entire course of things for the nation. Now she is taking a stand with Haitians devastated by political turmoil and natural disaster.
It is a tough time for refugees. Many Americans worry about numbers. We can expect a flow of refugees from Afghanistan. Will we be willing, for example, to accept more Haitians? President Trump worried about too many noncitizens from "s---hole countries," including Haiti. We will see how the Biden administration responds.
