Biographical/historical: Camp Bulkeley [an encampment within the United States Naval Station Guantanamo Bay] began under US President George H. W. Bush in late 1991 and ended under Bill Clinton 1993 ... Camp Bulkeley was used to hold 270 refugees approved for asylum who tested positive for HIV or were related to someone with HIV at the camp ... The CDC identified the Haitian nationality as being an at-risk group of HIV. ACT UP was a major advocacy group for ending the detention of HIV+ Haitians in Guantanamo ... The camp finally closed on July 18, 1993. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haitian_refugee_crisis, retrieved 11/2021)
