NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson released the following statement regarding the images and videos of U.S. border patrol attacking Haitian refugees with whips: 

“This cruelty is utterly sickening. The events that took place today are all too familiar to those that are aware of America’s ugly history.

The actions we witnessed today were inhumane under the last administration, and that sentiment remains. No person fleeing poverty and hunger should be treated in this egregious manner.

For far too long, the Haitian community has endured mistreatment at the hands of our nation. 

The administration has got to grant temporary protected status (TPS) to those seeking refuge. The actions of the U.S. border patrol are deplorable and should be investigated and reprimanded.

Our country claims to be better than this — we must show it.”
