Dear [insert name],

Over the last few days, Haitian migrants near the southern border of Texas have faced heightened and shocking abuse from U.S. Border Patrol agents while attempting to seek asylum in the United States. Photos show agents on horses chasing and whipping Haitian migrants.

In addition, the Biden administration has started deporting the migrants to Haiti, a country facing serious political and humanitarian crises.

The ongoing treatment of Haitian migrants by agents of the United States government must be addressed directly and quickly by our elected officials. Haitian migrants who arrive in our country seeking safety and security are fleeing a country ravaged by a devastating earthquake and violence following the assassination of the country’s leader this summer. They deserve to be treated with humanity and compassion.

As your constituent, I am calling on you to put an end to these deportations and abuses and to act to support and welcome Haitian migrants into the United States.

Sincerely,

[insert your name]
