🧵Ya’ll had questions about #Haitian families coming from #Chile (& other places). I interviewed 9 of them (& a Dominican fam) at a Houston shelter this week.

Here’s some takeaways:

*Why did you come to Ciudad Acuña, Mexico to cross into the US?*

-word traveled quickly about this border crossing
-ppl heard through other migrants (via Whatsapp, phone calls, talking) that it was a safe & easy place to cross
-migrants were shocked by large crowds there
*Where did you come from and why did you leave?*

-Haitians I spoke with came from Chile or Brazil
-almost everyone in Chile left because of not being able to get a work visa, but many talked about racism there
-they came to the US to work & provide for their families

I'm a #LatinX physician, taking care of #LatinX patients with #COVID19.

I've been so surprised at how people are surprised by data showing #COVID19 is disproportionately affecting marginalized communities that till now I didn't know how to respond.

Some thoughts:

2/The implications of these #disparities run far deeper than simple differences in rates of morbidity and mortality. I applaud all of those shedding light on these #inequities, but we need action, and we need it now. @valstonemd @drlouiseivers #COVID19 #SDOH
3/A majority of our #EssentialWorkers, our #FrontLineHeroes, come from minority communities; these are the individuals putting themselves at risk to do the invisible work without which our society would collapse. @JoiaMukherjee #COVID19
