Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, the representative of the district where the large Haitian community is concentrated in South Florida, urged the acting Prime Minister of Haiti, Claude Joseph, to ask US President Joe Biden to provide “additional security” to his country.

Wilson, from the Democratic Party and with strong ties to Haiti as the representative in Congress of the district where Little Haiti is located, urged the Haitian people to “remain calm during this international crisis and to unite to save their nation,” wrote the congressman on Twitter.

Haiti has suffered a strong political crisis since mid-2018 and experienced its most serious moment to date on February 7, the day on which Moise denounced that the opposition, with the support of some judges, was plotting a coup.
