    I think that they could do pretty good in a city like Santiago
    What's your source? I lived in Fl lauderdale, and worked in Miami for 6 years. They have their own communities, don't assimilate much, and just like some folks in little havanah, some have lived in this country for 10, 12, 15 years, and speak nary a word of english.
    I know this, having personally cussed out some of these rude, creole-speaking SOBs

    He's either being facetious (pulling our legs tongue-in-cheek), playing not-in-my-backyardism, or being extremely hateful to the DR and its chopos. Hard to say.

    Did you hear any mention of the DR? I'm speaking from my experiences with haitians I encounter in the states, and other countries.

    Not youpossibili's amusement at the possibility of them turning up on the DR is not amusing at all for us ones that would have to deal with them at the end of the day.

    Fixed.

    At the end of the day, the last thing that the DR needs right now is to receive even more riff raff to pile up with the one it has to deal with already, local or not.

    Do you give a reference that shows they all learned this?

    And I'm merely cosigning them by telling you that they aren't that different in Santo Domingo from the characterization you just made. I'm currently ending a master's degree in Spain, and the thought of having to deal with their shenanigans again is one of the things that kills any enthusiasm I might feel at the event of returning home. The other one is the security situation.

    I hope this is not viewed as an opportunity to remove 50 k potential dem voters in Florida. Perhaps the DR can extend a warm welcoming hand to their Haitian brothers and prove that love wins over hate
