Not surprised. I predicted this within minutes of hearing news of the earthquake.

And then they’ll be granted citizenship so they can vote for Obama.

Even more fraudulent votes for the Democrats.

Before these folks are allowed out of a quarantine area, they had best have a complete health screening for things like AIDS, TB etc. With so many hitting our shores from a country like this, we could be introducing illnesses not seen in America in many a decade.

Just as expected.
They can split of the panhandle and let it remain Florida,
and rename the rest “Big Detroit”.
I am sure all those blue hairs in the south will love it. /s

I read not long ago that down in SW Broward they had a big condo development of largely elderly NY jewish people. Well the condos took a hit in value, some people died and the liberal Broward county commissioners were dumping Section 8 people in these condos - probably a lot of Haitains and illegals. I be most of the elderly were hard core NYC libs who were being MEGA screwed by their own.

Haiti is too far for a Mariel flotilla. This will be all Obama with ships or planes. We need to tell our politicians NO. 13% unemployment in FL and the states is broke too. Put up tents in Haiti and teach them to rebuild there.

I read yesterday that 45K Americans live in Haiti. Is it possible that some/most of the evacuees are Americans?

You know, I think it is VERY interesting that number is what they are bringing here as I heard Haiti had 45,000 Americans there too. But I am tempted to buy 45,000 Liberty and Tyranny books on Amazon and pass them out as welcome gifts when they get here. LOL!

This is going to be a total re-do of that. I understand that one of the main prisons collapsed freeing all the criminals. You just know that they will find their way here to Florida.

Mayhaps it was just lazy Journalism; I seriously doubt that even [Stanley] Anne Dunham herself would want to live in Haiti...

...and she was weapons-grade minority-empathetic as most liberal-anthropologists come.

But getting back to the topic, I'm gonna shout NO to ANY but the most Severely-wounded and deathly-critical Haitian citizens be brought here, And even then, only into the hopsitals, no further.

Surely they’ll be allowed to vote, draw welfare in its various forms, qualify for “in-state” tuition and get SSI?

Why not take them to Cuba ? It is right next to Haiti ? And according to Michael Moore, they have a fine health care system. Are they admitting that Cuba is also a basket case ?

Or stick 'em in very entrenched blue states like Illinois and Massachusetts.

I’m sure the Somalis in MN or ME would welcome them with open arms. Either that or all the Liberal Democrats in Broward and Palm Beach counties are sure to let them stay there.

Of course, and Hussein will slowly allow them to leak into society, disappear, and become pro-Hussein voters.

The government has been destroying cities, communities and neighborhoods for 45 years with their various race based immigration schemes, Affirmative Action, War On Poverty, mortgages for people who can’t pay them back, and its open border policies.

Now the rate and scope of the destruction are skyrocketing with huge increases in “diversity visa” and “religious” visas” focused primarily on blacks and muslims. Now there will be a huge outcry for “humanitarian” visas for Haitians and there is already talk of granting legal resident status to Haitians already here illegally.

Before the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 brought huge, race based changes in the focus of immigration quotas, Miami and South Florida were as close to a tropical paradise as you could get in North America. Since then the government has done its best, using our tax dollars, to change it into a third world African/Carribean p**s pot - a combination of Port-au-Prince , Trench Town, and Bogotá.

In the Miami area well-heeled snow-birds have been replaced with destitute immigrants and chicken and goat sacrifices are now common.

At the current rate of destruction there soon won’t be much left of Florida below the panhandle.

Fort Pierce, Florida is Haiti’s second most populated city.
Fort Pierce, Florida also is the crack capital of the U.S.
Coincidence? I think not.

Send them to Cuba, I hear they really like blacks there and since they have more MDs than we do, they would be better able to handle the health care needs of these people.
Ask Mike Moore. They have the best healthcare in the world.

I've seen reports from the MSM that indicate the dead number "only" around 50,000 when the real figures may be 10 times that. Worse, the dead are being buried in mass graves without being ID'ed and the death tolls are bigger the deeper inland you go (building materials and design are even more primitive than in the cities). A lot of folks are going out of their minds here. Most of MY students are a couple of generations removed from the island, but family ties run deep.

I read in a local NYC paper that we may grant citizenship to 150,000 refugees.
