Re: Steve Sailer's Column: Why Haiti Is So Hopeless; And A Very Modest Proposal
The NYT thinks it's a good idea to grant amnesty to tens of thousands of Haitian aliens living here illegally even as we send thousands of U.S. citizens to that country to help earthquake victims. [Help Haitians Help Haiti, Opinion, New York Times, January 15, 2010]
The obvious question that the NYT fails to ask is why aren't we sending these aliens home to help?
Steve Sailer is completely correct in his call for population control efforts in Haiti, a solution overlooked by the NYT.
Given that the average number of children born per Haitian woman is nearly four which will result in doubling the population in about 35 years, why isn't family planning among the aid programs offered to this largely (80 percent) Roman Catholic country?
What's not a solution is an amnesty for Haitians already in the United States
