    Default 50,000 Haitians could be kicked out of the US

    It seems that 50,000 + Haitians who were granted special immigration status in the US after the earthquake may now be kicked out.

    It was a temporary visa and could possibly not be renewed. Not really "kicked out".

    Temporary Protected Status is "Temporary".  Maybe The Clinton Foundation can help out?

    Expect a least 10,000 of those to appear somewhere in the DR. SMH

    The irony you picked up on was indeed intended. 

    And of course some of them, if they are deported back to Haiti, will end up in the DR.

    I saw a report on the news about this, but it was months ago. They were saying it's due to racism!

    Semantics. They will be made to leave. I didn't imagine anyone would actually be applying a boot to their backsides.

    From this article it seems like they would be pretty good additions to the Dominican Republic. They have years in the US so they have learned structure, order and respect. They would have had to qualify for a tourist visa to get to America so they would have some financial backing. They also speak English and would likely have family that could send them money....

    I think that they could do pretty good in a city like Santiago
