Michelle Bachelet

Michelle Bachelet (born September 29, 1951) was a Socialist president of Chile. She ruled her country from 2006 to 2010 and again from 2014 to 2018.[1] She is a member of Socialist Party of Chile. Bachelet is the first director of United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. (UN Women) Bachelet is an agnostic.[2]

Her father Alberto Bachelet was a supporter of Marxist dictator Salvador Allende.

Second Government

Abortion

Bachelet strongly supports abortion[3] and she promoted and signed the "abortion in 3 cases" law which reintroduced abortion into Chilean legislation.[4]

Immigration

During her second government, a pro-immigrant policy was applied. The immigrant population went from 1% to 6.1%[5] with certain communities reaching historic numbers in the population such as Haitians, Venezuelans, Colombians and Ecuadorians, changing the demographics of Chile drastically. A lot are illegally since they entered with tourism visa and remained in the country after it expired.[6] The former minister of foreign affairs, Heraldo Muñoz, admited that the government knew about the Haitian immigrant traffic and that they only notified the Haitian Government about it.[7]

Bachelet also gave the chilean nationality to the children of the illegal immigrants, disrespecting the laws of Chile.[8]

In August 2018, the United Nations Human Rights Council chose Bachelet to lead the agency.[9]
