VERACRUZ, Mexico – For weeks, deeply upsetting images have dominated the Mexican news of Haitian families clutching sobbing babies in diapers as they attempt to make their way to the U.S. to apply for asylum.

“Haitians in Chiapas live in migrant chaos,” said one article a month ago in the Mexican national newspaper El Universal. “Earthquake, storms and floods: the constant battle facing Haitians,” read a headline in El Sol de Mexico, also a month ago. “Over 200 Haitian migrants refuse to leave bus in Veracruz” read a headline in the national publication, Proceso

That tens of thousands of people were en route to the U.S. to apply for asylum was no secret. The government should have been prepared to receive them like human beings.
