    Does it matter? The orphans are in Philly at children's hospital. They will be scattered all over. There are quite a few Haitians who have relatives stateside and they will come to the states if they choose to and some will choose to stay in Haiti because they don't know the language or the culture.

    In the past Australia has taken people like this in, on a tempary bases, until they could go back home. it was never meant to be permanent, and they agreed to this before they came.

    They get here to open welcoming arms,and feel safe and cared for. Their children get to go to school here too; they get the works.

    But the when it is time for them to leave to go home, they don't won't to. they see the opportunities Oz has, and the beauty of my county, and it's people too. Their kids have made friends at school, and now have a beloved Aussie Rules football team, and play the game to, they don't won't to leave,and refuse to get on the transport to take the home; yet they agreed their stay here was temp.

    I myself in the past had found this whole situation heartbreaking, and concluded prevention is better than a cure.

    Plus with all the illegal immigrants trying to come to Oz via leaking boats, since the left wing government come into power, all our resources are stretched to their limits. The no vacancy sign need to go up.

    Brooklyn, NYC

    It is already home to the largest Haitian community outside of Haiti.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. An evacuation from Port Au-Prince? An evacuation from Haiti overall...?

    Judging from the Haitian diaspora, the US, France, and Caribbean neighbors who have opened their doors in the past. Overseas evacuation is pretty much going to be a que-tip in the flood though. The best place for Haitians is Haiti, or more generally the island of Hispanola. The best method for dealing such a disaster is prevention, and helping Haiti become more, (not necessarily entirely) self-reliant in the face of such crises. A Haiti that can function day-to-day is more likely to weather such calamities better.

    Canada has a very large Haitian community especially in Quebec where they speak french. The Canadian Government just decided to fast-track Haitian immigrants and refugees to Canada. I think these apply to Haitians who have family in Canada.

    So that could be an option for some Haitians.

    I hope her head injury is nothing serious. It's so easy to imagine that these things happen "there" and forget the repercussions for our friends, neighbors and loved ones.

    Rather than encouraging more unnecessary immigration to the US, Australia and other prosperous countries where resources are already stretched thin due to severe budget deficits, it is time to clean up and reform the Haitian political system and encourage Haiti to modernize and upgrade itself. That alone will help solve the serious problems of the Haitian people.
