for you. a special envoy to haiti, a slam, the worsening security situation in port apprentice saying, massacres and kidnappings are now part of everyday life. daniel foot has been briefing the house foreign affairs committee after he resigned from his position in september the treatment of haitian migrants of the southern border. thousands were deported without being given a chance to claim asylum. a decision that foot cold in humane and counter productive and gallagher has more from miami. 6 this is frankly a pretty scathing briefing from the for, but us special envoy to haiti daniel foot. he of course, was appointed in july, i just days after president job. now luis was assassinated, which largely explains the situation in haiti right now. but his main points of contention with the, by them ministration was the treatment of those thousands of patients of the mast at the us mexico border saying that they should have been treated more fairly and perhaps given a chance to get processed through the immigration system. he also said that
7:10 am
forcibly we patch, rating haitians back to the country at this point in time is counterproductive. let's listen to what the former us special envoy to haiti had to say. deportation back to haiti is not the answer right now. i am not saying that that the intending migrants who are in illegal status shouldn't be deported. but haiti is too dangerous. our own diplomats cannot leave our compound and board bridge without armed guard and the already failed. essential services delivery. the haitian government is really overwhelmed in places like c d . so the biggest slum ma'am this year i've seen pictures of waste and stuff. so deportation in the short term is not going to make a more stable. in fact, it's going to make it worse. daniel foot also talked extensively about the security situation in haiti saying that essentially porter prince is now been run by gangs,
7:11 am
and he was aware that in one day alone, there were 20 abductions. that's the point he makes about, asians going back. the security situation is extremely dire and there really is no functioning government at the moment at now. of course, the biden administration's main policies for free and fair elections that and as soon as possible, but that isn't going to happen until some time next year. meanwhile, the effect of daniel foots words, a lifelong diplomat on the by the ministrations policies remain to be seen. you are special forces, and marines have been secretly training taiwanese troops since 2020. that's according to media reports. it comes as tensions grow between beijing and tie, pay with tie ones defense minister, calling them the worst in more than 4 decades. let's bring in, rob ryder, joseph life from hong kong. rob. so then what more do we know about these reports of us special forces training, taiwanese troops? what being said about this i have these reports are being reported and are
7:12 am
from a number of different media sources in the us. but interestingly, similar reports to these 1st appeared last november in taiwanese media, and that would have been if these stories are true at about the time that these are us special forces, who are met to none, but maybe as many as 20 would have 1st arrived on the island of a taiwan at the time, the u. s. military set. the reports were inaccurate. this time around the pentagon, at while not commenting directly on the reports has issued an interesting statement, saying that a support for thailand's military will be gauge depending on its defense needs, which does seem to give these reports some credence. the u. s. of course does support taiwan military in terms of hardware, the latest air jets, jet fighters and so on. it has for a number of years that is always an good china. if these reports are true, of having a pretty much a permanent, a presence military presence on the island of tra, foot very boots on the ground as it were. that would
7:13 am
a give china further cause or to be angry and that they haven't been a u. s. military presence permanently on the island of taiwan since 1979 and a u. s. could argue that these troops, if they have been there for nearly a year, are merely taking part in an ongoing training exercise, but it does have an air of permanence about it. yeah, robin. as we were saying this, revelation comes against the backdrop of recent, increasing tensions in the area over taiwan. that's right. we have, are they, there's a very sensitive time at the moment. we just had the october 1st national day in china. we have coming up this weekend, ty, one's national dane, of course, between the 2. we've seen this incredible increase in air air activity coming from china with nearly a 150 air craft in various waves spread over several days. crossing into the straight of the taiwan strait,
7:14 am
heading towards the island of taiwan. it has been condemned by the u. s. has been a provocative act, accusing china of destabilizing the area we've heard in the last couple of days or so from taiwan itself that relations are now the worst. they have been with at the level of tensions they have with the mainland, the worst i been full 40 years, arguing that at the that the rate of the china's military expansion, it would have the military might to be able to invade and take over the island of taiwan within a few years from china's point of view, of course, they regard taiwan as being a renegade breakaway province. that will be one day united with the motherland. and all of this military activity i think is their, their way of sending that message out that they, it's a heard loud and clear by the taiwanese. all right, robert, bride life and hong kong. rob, thank you, soccer. so break out al jazeera when we come back, pfizer asked the u. s. government to authorize its cobit 19 vaccine for children,
