Skip to comments.DHS Kelly: Repatriation of Haitians Is Good for Haiti
Posted on 06/03/2017 3:55:09 PM PDT by Rockitz
Foreigners who were given emergency refuge in the United States should go home when their emergency is over, says John Kelly, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
That is a dramatic reversal from prior administrations, which have repeatedly extended the supposedly Temporary Protected Status stays of roughly 300,000 Haitians, El Salvadorans, Hondurans and others who have fled since the 1990s from natural and man-made disasters to the United States.
Kellys spokesman, David Lapan, highlighted a second dramatic policy change when he said that Kelly recently told Haitian government officials that the return of 50,000 U.S.-based Haitians would be a plus for their homeland. He talked to them about the fact that a number of Haitians who are living in the United States have education and skill sets that would be helpful to the country as it continues to rebuild, Lapan told reporters.
Kellys comments show he is trying to build a public case in the United States for returning sheltered foreigners to their homelands, said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies:
It is not necessarily a message directed at the Haitians but is directed at American public opinion to make the case for letting supposedly temporary status finally lapse [to show that] a lot of the people who will go home will help their country develop
The way that this issue is usually framed [by the media] is if the administration lets TPS finally lapse for Haitians, the sob stories will all be about people who have been here for a long time, and Isnt it terrible and cruel and all of that, so [Kelly and his deputies] are probably trying to preempt that narrative.
Overall, U.S. immigration and refugee policies tend to pull the best-educated people out of developing countries, Krikorian said...

Not Port a Prince
He’s right. The folks who have spent their refugee-ness in the US now have a better perspective of ‘how things could and should work’. So, now it’s time to take that knowledge and go home and fix things so Haiti can be better.
AMEN!! A lot of Haitians have been very successful in the US. If they go back and take over the economy, Haiti could easily become a prime tourist destination.
AMEN!!!! Let them REBUILD THEIR OWN COUNTRY!!!
Sounds good to me.
Yes they should.
Who’s going to pay the Haitians back for all the money the Clinton’s stole?
It’s definitely a good start. Haitians are totally incompatible with civilized life.
They need to focus on Somalians, Zimbabweans, Afghans, Pakistanis, and Mexicans as well.
At least with Trump we’ve stopped the Clintons for stealing more there.
Try to think Syria, and other areas...
This is a start, D1.
I have been calling for repatriation on a larger scale for a long time.
obama and the libs so badly want to destroy the USA as we know it. They want to make whitey a minority.
Repatriation is as important a component of ending terrorism as there is > IMO.
... as well as limiting vote buying by democRATs.
Yes and I’d like to see penalties for any voting irregularities to be stiffened.
Give em a decade or two to celebrate voting violations in prison.
Good...let the Haitians steal fruit out of trees in their own front yards and not those in Boca Raton...swine!

If this comes to pass, it will be major #winning.
Short of finding oil or fissionables, there ain’t much than can help Haiti.
