According to the recent Democracy Now article, titled, Haiti Envoy Resigns Over Mass Deportations, Blasts History of US Interventions, Daniel Foote, the US envoy to Haiti wrote in his resignation letter,:

I will not be associated with the US inhumane, counter-productive decision to deport thousands of Haitian refugees.


This cycle of international political interventions in Haiti has consistently produced catastrophic results.

Moreover, he criticises the Biden administration's support for Ariel Henry as prime-minister after the assassination of Jovenal Moise, the president of Haiti, in July of this year.

Q. Why is Daniel Foote criticising this support? Is this simply because he feels the US should not interfere in Haiti's internal affairs - or is there some more specific reason
