Some Haitians faced lengthy confinement in U.S. immigration facilities before the deportations. An investigation by the nonprofit Florida Center for Investigative Reporting found evidence that the Obama administration has not followed its own policy of seeking alternatives to deportation when there are serious medical and humanitarian concerns.November 27, 2011 https://partners.wisconsinwatch.org/2011/11/in-haiti-u-s-deportees-face-illegal-detentions-and-grave-health-risks/
