U.S. will continue to deport Haitians

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Old request. New administration. Same answer. Days after President Barack Obama 's inauguration, advocates wrote to him and the new head of the Department of Homeland Security, asking that they stop deporting ...

NO. No, no, no.

My partner and I have spent over $10,000 and hundreds of hours of time in order for him to legally immigrate to the US from Belgium. NO WAY should someone just walk off a boat and start to live here....--TOTALLY AGAINST OUR LAWS-- without going through the same hassle and strife that we have.

My partner started his life in the US by following US laws. NOT BY BREAKING THEM, as Haitians want to do! If Obama and the Democrats want any support from me and many like me in the future they had BETTER NOT just allow these people in. Either let everyone in, or force EVERYONE to follow the rules.

To that end, members of the South Florida Congressional delegation plan to meet with DHS officials Tuesday to continue an "education process," one aide said.

Two uppity black urban congressmen does not a South Florida delegation make.

"They're bright people. They're fair people," said Randy McGrorty, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities Legal Services in Miami. "I remain optimistic the policy will change once they understand the need for change."

Or maybe they are doing the job that the American taxpayer sent them to Washington to do. Enforce our immigration laws. Limit American taxpayer's exposure to hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal alien costs to our social system.

Advocates and congressional leaders have been asking the government to grant Haitians protected status for years. Those calls increased after four tropical storms ravaged the island nation last summer.

They'll get over it. Look at post-Katrina New Orleans. It is the people that put that city back together gain, not the government. Haiti could use 30,000 illegal laiens back in their country lending a hand.

Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, which advocates for tighter immigration controls, said advocates should set benchmarks for when Haitians granted protected status would go back. In other cases, the designation has been extended for years.

There is no such thing as "temporary" in the TPS.

Judged:

1

If the Cubans can stay, the Haitians should be able to stay. If the Haitians are deported, then the Cubans should be deported.

The U.S. Constitution states that all men are created equal. Repatriation policies should abide by that.

Dude, what are you smoking???? All the haitians that I've come across, which is alot, are morons. They have no brains. It's like they left it at haiti or something. They are rude, inconciderate, selfish, and nasty people. They take dead peoples names and make it their own so they can continue to live here illegally. There's a reason why their country is in hell, and they are the reason for it. Good people, my behind.

By the way, I suggest you go to Miami and then say what you just said again. I bet a million dollars that you'll never say that again.

Haitians are not fit for a Western civilized culture. Anyone who has been around them knows and understands what i'am saying.
This is not a racist comment just fact!

It's time to end the 'wet foot/dry foot' policy and stop allowing undocumented Cubans to stay! They've already turned Miami-Dade County into a Third-World Nation! An undocumented alien is an undocumented alien no matter where they are from!

First the Haitians, then the Cubans and last but not least the Mexicans. After they accomplish this they can start on the Puerto Ricans, Guatemalans, Africans and Arabs. Put them in a boat with a set of oars 500 miles off of the coast of Maine in the north Atlantic. Good Luck!!

All people who are hear illegally should apply for citizenship and start paying taxes or ship them back where they came from. It is time that the US stops being a babysitter for countries that don't care about their own people.

Some people feel we should have two sets of laws....one for illegal aliens...the other for Americans and people that that try to enter this country the right way...Immigration laws are set up for a reason...we have to know who is here and if they will not be a drain on our social services...anyway...Good Luck to you and your partner..........or they could just float ashore...speak a few words in spanish...and say they are from Cuba...and the freebies would start to flow...

I had to comment on your post cause it was so right on. EVERY Haitian I have ever had the unfortunate opportunity to meet has been down right rude and have an OVERALL attitude to match. You would think that being in another country where they are SOOOO much better off than their own, would inspire them to have an attitude of gratitude and happiness, but they act like we owe it to them or something, which shows me they aren't very smart either.

Puerto Ricans are Americans.

Aside from that, I say if Obama wants to create new jobs, he start by increasing the number of officers in both ICE and the Border Patrol.

Then we have them out daily rounding up illegals and raiding businesses that hire illegals. Then Americans can do the job.

We can cut the crap that illegals do the jobs Americans won't. It should be said that businesses save money by hiring illegals to avoid taxes.
