FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
October 4, 2023
Washington, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke (NY-09) released the following statement regarding the United Nations Security Council’s vote to authorize a foreign security mission to Haiti:
“The world can no longer ignore the unprecedented levels of chaos and violence plaguing the nation of Haiti. Within the last year, tens of thousands of children have been unable to attend school, and hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee their homes as the situation worsens each and every day. The U.N. Security Council’s historic authorization is welcomed news, but more must be done. I look forward to working alongside my colleagues in Congress, the Biden administration, and our international partners to support Haiti’s critical near-term needs and help foster the conditions necessary for the country to advance long term stability,” said Congresswoman Clarke.
