MIAMI — America has a message for the millions of Haitians left homeless and destitute by last week’s earthquake: Do not try to come to the United States.

Every day, a United States Air Force cargo plane specially equipped with radio transmitters flies for five hours over the devastated country, broadcasting news and a recorded message from Raymond Joseph, Haiti’s ambassador in Washington.

Why do we block our friends from Hati from coming here to seek a better life, to do the work americans will not do. and feed their families and DO VERY VERY LITTLE TO STOP THE MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF HISPANICS flooding our country? Tell me why this isnt racist. Why do the illegal hispanics have a right to steal from us but not the Haitians? I cry UNFAIR

That is indeed a valid question. Some say we can’t “afford” to send our military to our southern border. Yet, somehow we CAN afford to send our military to intercept Haitians fleeing a catastrophic natural disaster. And, I do believe they will be required to continue their deployment indefinitely, give the dire straits in Haiti. Hmmm. . . .

Quote:
“Listen, don’t rush on boats to leave the country,” Mr. Joseph says in Creole, according to a transcript released by the Pentagon. “If you do that, we’ll all have even worse problems. Because, I’ll be honest with you: If you think you will reach the U.S. and all the doors will be wide open to you, that’s not at all the case. And they will intercept you right on the water and send you back home where you came from.”
