Help for Haitians

By Steven Forester, IJDH Stop Deportations Now! Coordinator

Haiti’s rainy season is causing misery to millions whom the earthquake made homeless, and the hurricane season looms. When will the Obama administration bring in the 55,000 beneficiaries of already-approved visa petitions? They’re already in the pipeline. Their remittances would do more to help Haiti recover than 15 separate aid bills.

All South Florida members of Congress should support HR 4616, which would grant the visas, and Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, is to be applauded for doing so.
