Congressman from Florida Helps 13 Americans Get Out of Haiti

Representative Cory Mills from Florida has stated on X, (formally Twitter) that he aided an additional thirteen Americans to evacuate out of the Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince, after helping ten evacuate last week.

“It’s with great pride I announce that our team successfully conducted another rescue of 13 Americans out of PAP Haiti,” Mills stated. The ten Americans had been working at the Have Faith Orphanage in Port-au-Prince.

Haiti has recently been taken over by gangs, causing Prime Minister Ariel Henry to step down. Vedant Patel, a spokesperson for the State Department, said on Monday that around 1,000 Americans have completed a “crisis intake form” requesting assistance out of Haiti. Thirty Americans landed in Miami on the afternoon of Sunday, March 17th, after being airlifted from Cap-Haïtien aboard a US government flight.

“It is not hyperbole to say that this is one of the most dire humanitarian situations in the world,” Patel went on to say, also adding: “Gang violence continues to make the security situation in Haiti untenable, and it is a region that demands our attention.”
