Information received concerning policies to deport undocumented Haitian migrants and to eradicate informal settlements known as “shanty towns” inhabited primarily by persons of Haitian origin or descent without any consultations or alternative accommodation provided to the affected minority and migrant communities. These policies have not taken into account the extreme vulnerability of the Haitian communities in the wake of category 5 Hurricane Dorian, which hit the Bahamas in September 2019, as a result of which many lost their lives, possessions, savings, personal documentation and jobs. Undocumented Haitian migrants are being deported in violation of the principle of non-refoulement, without individual assessments and due process guarantees, while informal settlements are being targeted for destruction without any consultation with their residents or the provision of adequate alternative housing. In April 2021, the authorities started an operation aiming to demolish around 600 newly-reconstructed homes in two adjacent informal settlements known as the Farm and the Farm Road on Abaco island, which will displace up to 2,000 persons (approx. 600 families), many of them women and children.
