Found this article on the BBC website and thought you might be interested.

BBC News - Haitian invasion welcomed in rural America

"Mount Olive is a small town in rural North Carolina, best known for its pickle factory and southern charm. Less than two years ago the Census listed this place as having zero immigrants from Haiti among the town's 4,600 inhabitants. But over the past 18 months that has changed as thousands of Haitians have flocked to the area."

I'd much rather have legal immigrants moving in than illegal immigrants. Good for them.

Funny b/c the amazingly politically correct statement the young blond women made in the video directly mentioned that ("other demographics"), which would go over the head of anyone not familiar with that area.

No one said these immigrants are legal though. These companies, like Mount Olive Pickles, Butterball, Case Farms and the like who have plants in So. Wayne and Duplin county, actively court and facilitate illegal immigration. Perhaps the Haitians are seen as a better alternative to the Mexicans because of the huge spike in crime there has been in So Wayne/Duplin County perpetuated by the hispanic illegal immigrant population.

Haitians are law-abiding?
