Post says Haitians deserve protected status

An editorial in Monday’s Washington Post calls for temporary protected status for Haitians, noting that “Haitian immigrants more than qualify” for the protection. The editorials states: “The State Department cautions visitors that there are no ‘safe areas’ in Haiti, and that ‘kidnapping, death threats, murders, drug-related shootouts, armed robberies, break-ins and carjackings are common.’ Yet, it is U.S. policy to deport the estimated 30,000 Haitians in this country back to this hotbed of violence and squalor.”
