Converging Crises: U.S. Marines Deployed to Haiti Amidst Open US Borders and Bleeding US Funds to Stupid Policies

Amidst the intensifying turmoil in Haiti, the U.S. Southern Command has made a pivotal decision to deploy a contingent of U.S. Marines to reinforce security measures at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince. This strategic move, prompted by escalating violence and civil unrest, underscores the growing concerns over the safety of diplomatic personnel and American citizens in the Caribbean nation.

The crisis highlights the irresponsibility of the Federal government’s budgetary concerns to keep funding for extremely expensive “woke social just policies” and for foreign aid to countries like Ukraine, who are at war over things that do not concern the American people.

Just recently, Democrat Joe Biden funneled even more money away from the US border to Ukraine:

Now we have more unrest that could impact the US due to the location of Haiti.

The decision to bolster security with the US Military comes amidst a backdrop of heightened gang activity and anti-government protests that have engulfed Haiti in recent weeks. The announcement of the resignation of acting Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry has further exacerbated uncertainties, prompting swift international responses to safeguard stability and protect vital interests.

At the behest of the Department of State, the Marine Fleet-Anti-terrorism Security Team (FAST) has been deployed with the primary mandate to fortify security capabilities at the embassy and support ongoing efforts for a peaceful transition of power. This reinforcement supplements the existing diplomatic security teams already engaged in safeguarding embassy personnel and facilities.

Prior to this deployment, U.S. military helicopters facilitated the evacuation of nonessential American personnel from the embassy, demonstrating proactive measures to ensure the safety of embassy staff. Despite these precautionary measures, a significant contingent of diplomats remains in Haiti, underscoring the steadfast commitment to maintaining diplomatic presence amidst challenging circumstances.

Furthermore, the U.S. government has escalated its support for security initiatives in Haiti by doubling funding for the Multinational Security Support (MSS) mission. Collaborative efforts with international partners, including the Haitian National Police, are underway to restore order and mitigate the escalating threat posed by armed factions.

U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan has expressed support for the establishment of a transitional Presidential Council in Haiti, commending Prime Minister Ariel Henry’s decision to prioritize the welfare of the Haitian people. These diplomatic overtures reflect broader efforts to navigate Haiti through a period of uncertainty and facilitate a peaceful transition of leadership.

The deployment of U.S. Marines in Haiti unfolds against a backdrop of escalating tensions and multiple crises on various fronts. In Washington, D.C., the political landscape is mired in demands for budget allocations to address the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. As lawmakers grapple with funding decisions, the specter of another budget standoff looms large, complicating efforts to manage crises abroad.

Simultaneously, concerns persist over the strain on law enforcement resources due to open borders and lax immigration policies. The influx of refugees from Haiti exacerbates existing challenges faced by law enforcement agencies tasked with maintaining border security. This confluence of factors creates a volatile situation, amplifying anxieties about national security and public safety.

The proximity of the unrest in Haiti to the U.S. border heightens apprehensions about potential spillover effects, intensifying the urgency for comprehensive strategies to address these multifaceted challenges. As the nation approaches the summer months, with political conventions looming and memories of the 2020 election season’s unrest still fresh, there is heightened sensitivity to developments that could exacerbate tensions further.

The convergence of these challenges underscores the imperative for careful navigation and proactive measures to safeguard both domestic and international stability and security. Efforts to address the complex dynamics unfolding in Haiti and manage crises abroad are paramount in charting a path towards stability and prosperity for the embattled nation and ensuring the safety of American interests.
