Why are thousands of Haitians streaming into Canada from the U.S.?

50,000 Haitians could lose protected status in the U.S., but Canada could deport those seeking asylum.

Heading to Canada is one of the only options seen by many of the 50,000 Haitians who've been living under temporary protection status in the U.S. — but many don't know they face deportation here, too, should their asylum claim be rejected.

Hold on, hold on...

Oh, Jennifer Huckabee Sanders said "that's just a poem - it did not come with that on there"

He probably wants it sandblasted off.

It says a lot that Haitians are willing to take that risk. That country has had so much misery. Literally nothing to go back to - including housing.

Question is: What happened to all that money that was sent to Haiti, during that earthquake to help the Haitians rebuild? They're also being rejected/kicked out in the Dominican Republic and attacked by many Dominicans there.

Probably one of the most corrupt places on the planet. I knew Haitians in 1980s NYC who came here with nothing (except fear of their government) and if anything it's gotten worse. They have really bad luck with major disasters too.

Could it have anything to do with the language? Are they moving into the French speaking parts? Maybe it´s easier for them in places like Quebec than in , say, NYC or Chicago?

the most basic right of any country... any place really... is to be able to control who is allowed to enter or stay. I often get a little smile at signs that say "No unauthorized persons" that goes for everywhere... really... the sign just indicates a higher level of such.


but yeah....no nation worth moving to can have open borders and expect to maintain that worth. And to that, there is simply NO Argument to be made.

and anyone that thinks we should have open borders...make sure you remove all locks from all your doors and property... or you will prove yourself a hypocrite.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Nope. Another area that they would cross has trickled to none and now the hot spot to cross is Quebec. Once that trickles then another spot will become popular.

Many Haitians in NYC live among English speaking people, and still speak their own language. They adapt quick. Many of them do well on the East Coast with their own businesses, careers/professions too.

Does that go for those many American-born citizens of various ethnic/racial groups who commit crimes?

Yep, and if many of them lose their protective status here, they will have no choice but to flee elsewhere.

On a lighter note, can you blame them for wanting to leave the US?

I am so glad my nephew went to college and married a lovely Canadian woman. They have a great son and a great life in Vancouver.

are you asking if I think native or natural born citizens or even naturalized citizens should be able to be kicked out of the US? NO! If a person wants to relinquish their citizenship and has a nation that will take them in lieu of maybe going to prison... i MIGHT be okay with that under some circumstances...
