As is usual for immigrants outpacing native born.
    I certainly applaud them. If the world had it's head screwed on straight that's how it's supposed to be when you immigrate to a new country. Not like we see now with liberal and social minded governments (Canada) standing in line to give freebies to everyone who can stick thier hand out.

    Blame everything on the haitians, whom as you rightly pointed out earn a misery in the dr, instead of admitting that your own politicos are ripping you off. And on a scale that would make haitians seem pale in comparaison, no pun intended
    Sad truth.

    I have friends in Haiti that want me to help them get out. Unfortunately, even if I could help them with the tourist visa, they would not be able to work. They don't understand why.

    To where are they trying to get a tourist visa? The US, for example, does not allow "help" with tourist visas, no letter of recommendation would help them since they are not even looked at if you write one. People don't seem to understand that you cannot sponsor a visitor to the US. I suppose you could pay for the visa application, but that would just be a waste of money.

    They are so desperate to get out they don't understand or at least don't want to. I agree with everything you said as it 100% matches my past experiences. However Haitians don't want to hear that. They want to go to the USA and get a job. It is so difficult to make them understand.
