Description

Haitian immigrants have received more attention in recent weeks after the U.S. government trapped them in terrible conditions at a camp along the U.S.-Mexico border and is now using extraordinary legal methods to expel more than 500 per day. But there is no reason to oppose Haitian immigration. Despite extreme challenges, Haitians integrate well into the U.S. economy and society. Across numerous economic and social measures, Haitians and their U.S. descendants contribute to and prosper in their new country.
