President of the Citizens Committee for the Defense of Naturalized and African-Mexican Citizens (CCDNAM) Wilmer Matelus, denounced the Mexican government's decision to deport 600 Haitians to Brazil.Their government said that the Haitian immigrants didn't qualify for a humanitarian visa, which Matelus dismissed and instead said that this decision seems like racism."According to the Mexican government, the Haitian immigrants are occupying a space meant for Mexican deportees from the U.S. To us, it is a racist decision by both the federal and state governments," said Matelus.
