This kind of stonewalling is wrong. Contrary to what activists say, the United States can and should deport real criminals who aren't American citizens back to Haiti — whether or not an earthquake shook the island. But more consideration should be given to the nature of their crimes.

And the U.S. government should be more open about those whom it imprisons. Isn't that the very basis of our democracy?

I wonder what would happen to an American citizen if they sneak into a country do something illegal GET caught and put up a fuss I bet they just hang you stone you or just shoot you imprison you and forget about you or all of the above .Deportation I think is a legal gift of the USA a Bullet would cost tax payers allot less and theway the government spends money the bullet may just be the rout they go soonso just come through the gate legal or stay the hell out .Oh and if you are here illegal up yours you deserve what ever legal tax payers can afford to do with you

Miami is just a racist place when it comes to people from the Afro-Islands than from Latin America, its the truth! I am neither Hatian or Latin American!

It's been my experience Cuban people seem to be more pleasant to be around, a little more motivated to go out there and work and less violent. Most Haitians I've had the displeasure to be around are rude, lazy workers, expect things to be handed to them, inconsiderate, and selfish only thinking for themselves. Most low wage workers in SFla are Haitians, and I can tell you the service is horrendous...No hello, thank you or anything else which would be considered some type of customer service. We have plenty out of work people here, and college kids who would be more than happy to take their jobs and smile while doing so. I say deport all of them.

i have no compassion for deportees... just go the right way to become a citizen and you wouldn't be crying about being deported.

The real issue I have is that when they get deported they end up in Haitian jails. Since they already did their time in the US. The US should allow them to go to Haiti without handing them over to Haitian officials who always jailed them because the Haitian officials attitude is if the US can't handle you then you are a heinous criminal that need to be locked up.

The deportees should be allowed to go home to Haiti without the stigma because being a deportee because no one really wants to associate with you down there even family members especially if you were not helping them while you were living in the US. They should have the opportunity to go down there on their own without being jailed. immigration law is clear cut, once you're a convict or suspect of associating with terrorist you will be deported not ifs or buts about it. Obama administration won't change it because he wants to be reelected and don't want to seen to be soft on criminals. So instead of wasting money in lawyers, they should take that money and start their life over in Haiti. I know a couple of deportees who are successful business people in Haiti but I suppose if you were unproductive in the US then you're probably going to be worst off in Haiti. So going to Haiti itself is not a death sentence but ending up in a Haitian jail may be.

Well sir I'm truly sorry that you haven't met any real Haitians who take pride in their race and who know how to comport themselves in a cordial and utmost respectful manner. I am Haitian myself and trust me, there are some of us good Haitians out there. I was born and raised in New York City but nonetheless, I'm Haitian. In the near future I hope you meet an agreeable educated respectful Haitian.

you need to think of other people families before you say this. you have no heart and you are very selfish. your opinion is not needed either.

What Haiti decides to do with deportees is on them not the USA. The USA can suggest not order.

The law is clear, foreign nationals who commit felonies MUST be deported. Why should we shelter Haiti's criminals?

Then we should deport Cubans who have committed felonies. Yet we don't. Do you ever wonder why?
