On Tuesday, Nov. 9, the FXB Center will host a webinar, “Title 42 and Human Rights Abuses of Haitian Migrants at the Texas Border.” Title 42 is a clause of the federal Public Health Services Law that allows for expedited removal or denied entry of people who have recently been in a country where a communicable disease was present. During this event, public health, immigration and human rights experts will talk about how this clause has negatively affected people attempting to enter the United States, with a special focus on the recent human rights violations against people migrating from Haiti.

Center Director Dr. Mary T. Bassett will provide opening remarks.
