I wonder if Luis will bring up Haiti?
I suspect he will since "respecting human rights" is mentioned in Dolores's news. However, IMO he will stick to his script that firmly states this is not my problem with Haiti and WE cannot do this alone simply because "our borders touch." So far I think he is making his point and deportation will not stop. Pregnant women is a sensitive issue. However, it is NO different than any other country that is poor or lacking a stable government . All people want a "birthing" country that is more favorable than where they live. We all can't live in Santo Domingo, Flushing NYC (Chineese), Texas or Arizona.
I think Luis is following the procedure put in place from a very famous person (gee weez what was his name) "The buck stops here!").

He should not attend. Team America's current strategies are driving the USA into the ground while destroying the fabric of that once great nation.

Samantha Power has done enough damage down here already. We do not need anyone suggesting this country follow in their foot steps. They've already made it clear to us, Haiti is our problem not theirs.

Stand up Luis and handle your business like a man. Do not kowtow to the self-destructive losers.
