US Deportation of Haitians Slammed

Rights activists have condemned a US decision to deport Haitian immigrants amid a cholera outbreak that is claiming more lives across the troubled country.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorities said the agency had rounded up more than 350 Haitians to be deported in January, a Press TV correspondent reported.

At least 100,000 Haitian immigrants have no legal papers, and could also face deportation.

The US government, however, said it is limiting deportations to people with criminal convictions, which can range from felony offenses to the most minor violations.'
