Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: U.S. Haitian Immigration Policy Wins No Friends And Influences No People
The border between the Dominican Republic and Haiti is porous and illegal immigration between the two countries cannot be controlled. I would therefore institute the practice of issuing national identity cards to foreigners including illegal aliens that they must always carry.
Impose an annual renewal fee would help offset the cost of social services granted to Haitians and currently funded by Dominicans.
Haitians are smart people but the majority are poor. A few elitist Haitian men hold all the power but are conflicted by contradictory and uncoordinated efforts by the nations that donate to it.
I've been to Haiti and its capitol Port-au-Prince. I've never seen worse living conditions, all caused by its corrupt and inept governance.
