No. The only places that will receive a real massive influx of Haitians will be the Dominican Republic and the possibly the mainland.

That was my #1 thought as well...the DR will be flooded with Haitians.

------------

This is an enormous tragedy though...funny how self-interests pop up....I hope that isn't common sentiment of Haiti's neighbors...rather than compassion, just this dread a refugee might show up.

Believe it or not, the DR is going to be fairly open in its borders compared to how it usually is. They have agreed to take in thousands of Haitians.

Well I assume that if currently there any illegal Haitians in PR, they will have temporary legal status that has been granted by US Government on the mainland.

I am very compassionate to human suffering, however, I meant to say illegal entering of a country like Puerto Rico, that has automatic US citizenship, and by getting the papers underground, anyone can enter the US. Puerto Rico has had MASSIVE illegal citizenship, including multitude of people from Santo Domingo, and it is a very small island that it can sustain ONLY SO MUCH. How about Japan opening its doors...............to massive illegal immigration..................

Why the idea that there's going to be a massive Haitian migration to Puerto Rico to begin with?
