they won't have to. The church will invite them in in droves as converts. Heck, they did that with the Tongans out of LA back in the late 70's and all it did was give us the "start up" gangs here. How lovely.......

Moderator cut: orphaned quote and rude if you read it very careful i said there is always a bad apple in every race. say if the gov. of utah brings the people from that country to give them better housing and schooling as well. not every single person is perfect. i just wanted to get some feed back if it's going be like this again when the state of utah brought people from new orleans.

You seem like the benevolent type. Why doesn't the governor of California welcome them to Sacramento. Offer them housing and a better education Yeah, I rather thought so. We in Utah have our OWN problems with the economy. Record foreclosures, lack of housing, school deficits (and after a continuous 3 year in a row hike in taxes to help out in the schools). So I'm very sorry for their loss, BUT we are not doing enough for our people right here in the U.S. thus far. It astonishes me that the U.S. government (notice I'm not saying "the people" at large) are the first to come to the rescue of foreign countries in distress when we don't even help the citizens of this country sufficiently. What incenses me the most is how so many in this country look elsewhere (outside of the U.S.) to give their assistance to other than their own countrymen and women equally in need.

Breezy,

I agree with your heart but not how you want to do it. Having the government forcibly take away funds from others to help Haitians is wrong.

If churches or red cross etc. want to raise funds to help and house them that is great. I just don't believe in majority forced charity no matter how nice it is.

After Katrina, US citizens (and some illegals) were flown to various cities in the US. Bringing uninjured people from another country here to re-settle them just isn't possible. At least the Katrina victims spoke English. Even so, about 1/2 of them brought to UT in the 1st year returned to LA. How could Haitians return to their country? Better to send supplies, doctors, and money as many charities are doing.

great point Belle on the US Citizens. Someone used to the climate in Haiti would not love Utah climate. I think that was one of many reasons for the Katrina transplants to head back south..
