Marines Sent in to Evacuate U.S. Embassy as Gangs Take Over Haiti

Over the weekend, the U.S. Military had to evacuate non-essential personnel from Haiti due to violent gangs attempting to seize control of the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince.

The volatile island nation is teetering on the brink of collapse following the invasion of gangs on the Port-au-Prince jail, resulting in the release of numerous criminals onto the streets.

This tiny, struggling nation has faced a series of challenges, from severe earthquakes to acts of political violence.

Gangs have targeted the country’s primary international airport and police stations, raided ports and structures, and obstructed the delivery of humanitarian assistance.

The Biden administration advised Americans in Haiti to stay away from large groups, maintain a low profile, be ready to stay indoors for a long time at short notice, avoid going out at night, and follow local news for updates on areas with reported violence or disturbances.

Evacuations of U.S. personnel worldwide have become frequent during President Joe Biden’s term, as adversaries, terrorists, and criminals are growing more confident due to what they perceive as weak leadership from Washington.
