    Mexican officials are quietly helping thousands of illegal immigrant Haitians make their way to the United States, according to an internal Homeland Security document that details the route taken by the migrants, the thousands of dollars paid to human smugglers along the way and the sometimes complicit role of the governments of America’s neighbors. More than 6,000 Haitians arrived at the border in San Diego over the last year — a staggering 18-fold increase over fiscal year 2015. Some 2,600 more were waiting in northern Mexico as of last week, and 3,500 others were not far behind, waiting in Panama...

    Clintons and Haitian relief, where billions of dollars have been raised with little benefit to the Haitians but considerable benefit to the Clintons. For the Clintons, the boon from Haiti’s earthquake of January 12, 2010 came while HRC was Secretary of State, and Bill Clinton was the United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti. As soon as massive numbers of Americans began to donate small sums of money for earthquake relief, Bill and Hillary Clinton transformed themselves into the face of Haiti. ... By March 8, 2010, Bill Clinton had applied sufficient pressure on President René Préval, to force Haiti’s Lower...

    Haitians eligible to receive green cards in two years soon will be able to wait it out in the United States rather than in Haiti under an expedited family reunification program announced Friday by the Obama administration. Beginning early next year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will implement the Haitian Family Reunification Parole (HFRP) Program to accelerate the reunification of eligible Haitian family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, who are living in Haiti and have already been approved for a family-based immigrant visa. There are approximately 100,000 Haitians in the immigration pipeline in Haiti but only...

    “Paid administrative leave“? After operating a website that lists the President of the United States on an enemies list, doesn’t the Department of Homeland Security have a couple of better options? The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that an employee who runs a racist website predicting and advocating a race war has been put on paid administrative leave. Ayo Kimathi, an acquisitions officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement who is in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the government, operates the website named “War on the Horizon.” It includes descriptions of an “unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white...

    WASHINGTON —The federal government announced on Monday that it would reimburse American hospitals who treat Haitian earthquake victims with life-threatening injuries, making it possible for more hospitals in states outside Florida to consider taking those patients. The announcement came as a C-130 cargo plane was being sent to carry at least 10 Haitians seriously injured in the earthquake from Port-au-Prince to Palm Beach, Fla., the first military airlift of wounded Haitians since a controversial suspension of the flights last week.
  • Why Do Americans Care More For Haitian Orphans, Than They Do For American Children?

    Yesterday, a friend of mine informed me of this American adoption website: According to the website, there are 100,000 American children in temporary foster care, who cannot get permanent homes. Many of those children are members of racial minority groups, and some are special needs children. There are also large numbers of American children who are homeless, and their number is estimated to be larger than that in foster care. Then why is so much public attention being focused on bringing Haitian children to America, when we have so many American children that we cannot take care of? Why...

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI -- International relief organizations backed by American soldiers delivered hundreds of tons of rice to homeless residents of the Haitian capital Sunday, laboring to ease a food shortage that has left countless thousands struggling to find enough to eat. But even as food-aid workers enjoyed their most successful day since the Jan. 12 earthquake, the increasingly prominent role of U.S. troops and civilians in the capital is creating high expectations that the Obama administration is struggling to contain. The needs are extraordinary, and the common refrain is that the Americans will provide. "I want the Americans to take...

    THE UNITED STATES has reacted swiftly and generously to Haiti's calamity, both with a colossal charitable response from individuals, enterprises and organizations and with a substantial commitment of troops, money, medical help and high-level attention from the government. But the Obama administration can and should do more, and quickly, to ease the vast burden of relief and rebuilding and to channel cash to Haitian families in dire need. Specifically -- and at a minimum -- it could accomplish those goals by allowing Haitians with relatives in the United States to join their families here as quickly as practicable. Instead, it...

    Decatur, Georgia (CNN) -- Given all their country and people have been through, between political upheavals, human rights abuses, hurricanes, abject poverty and last week's earthquake, "If Haitians were constantly questioning their faith, they would all be atheists." These words came from the Rev. Eric Hill as he prepared to lead Haitian Mass Sunday at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Decatur, Georgia. Some of the 100 Haitian parishioners who gathered raised their hands to the heavens in praise, grateful their loved ones had been found. Others bowed their heads and clenched their hands for those lost, still missing...

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) was created under the Department of Homeland Security to ensure our nation's safety. KY3 found answering the simple question of 'who can be arrested?' is complicated. "Imagine my head hurting," Ozark County Sheriff Raymond Pace said. "I had five right off the border, still had pesos, looking for a Bank of America to cash in their pesos and get American dollars." Sheriff Pace brought undocumented immigrants to his office and called I.C.E....

    A year after a string of storms battered Haiti, South Florida Haitian leaders are stepping up efforts to press the Obama administration to activate a designation that would allow some 30,000 Haitians in the United States to seek employment. ``Our people need a work permit to continue contributing to this country and to provide for their families,'' said the Rev. Jonas Georges, a pastor at All Nations Presbyterian Church in North Miami Beach. ``It is a status that the president can say, with the stroke of a pen, `there it is.'
