"As we all know, there’s plenty of jobs to go around in America these days, and the Haitians that on Monday are swarming US Navy helicopters and practicing voodoo, would make fine citizens the minute they cross our frontiers." [source]
I've been intently watching the news and videos coming out Haiti; waiting. I am staunchly opposed to a mass migration of Haitians to the US. That does not imply lack of charity on my part, but simply a realistic understanding of the consequences.
"The refugees won’t live in the fanciest neighborhoods, but rather in poor and working class apartment complexes on government subsidies. Haitian gangs, Haitian attitudes about crime and corruption, and Haitian disrespect for law and order will almost certainly follow in their wake..." [source]

I'm leaning toward making Haiti a U.S. territory or protectorate.

I don't care just so long as they abide by our laws and our religious freedoms . It is the muslims that irk me . They don't need to be wearing the burqa here in Canada and it offends me that they can take the time to pray 5 times a day , taking them away from their payed jobs . The kingdom of God will be set up in the midst of poverty so , they may be our inspiration later . I don't mind the poor , at all .

If they start to impose their way of life ,then that is a no no imo. They should respect our culture and our traditions.
