Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 25, 2018

The NAACP is suing the Department of Homeland Security over the Trump administration's decision to terminate the temporary protected status, or TPS, of tens of thousands of Haitians living in the U.S. The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund filed a lawsuit on Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, seeking a court injunction of that decision, arguing it was "an egregious departure from the TPS statute's requirements and an intent to discriminate on the basis of race and/or ethnicity."

Thus we see the importance of deporting the Polish immigrant doctor. He's white and they're deporting him demonstrating that race isn't the basis for deportations. They'll probably conveniently find some other white folks to deport. NAACP would have a better case if they mentioned that Trump wants to deport Haitian immigrants to a ---- hole. If Haiti is really a ---- hole then how can America, in good conscience, deport anyone to it. From what I have read lately, Haiti is absolutely a ---- hole, after the earthquake and two hurricanes it is a big mess that can't care for the people who still live there and much less thousands who have been living here and sending money to their poor relatives down there. Deportation of those people will only exacerbate the problems Haiti faces.

terminate the temporary protected status,

Temporary is not permanent. This status has an end to it, which is apparently now.

And it just HAPPENS to be during the tenure of a proven racist. What a remarkable coincidence!

And Jeff, you and your family will be so much better off if we deport those awful Haitians who you have probably never even met. You know nothing about them except that you want to ruin their lives.

I was pointing out that their status is temporary. That status is temporary for a reason.

Okay, Jeff. And under what conditions was it supposed to come to an end? Have those conditions been met?

From the article:

At least 46,000 Haitians are living in the U.S. with protection from deportation and the ability to work under the TPS program, which is meant to help immigrants from countries affected by natural disasters or wars.

To the best of my knowledge, Haiti is neither entangled in war or is suffering from a natural disaster. This status probably should have ended years ago.

Maybe congress can include these people in the DACA deal they are working on.

Thanks for showing, once again, just how limited your knowledge actually is.

Please cite where JEFFJ has made a statement of that nature, or admit that you are a liar.

"That status is temporary for a reason."

And what reason is that? How are they harming anyone by being here. I actually know Haitans and I actually like them. Some of the nicest people I know are Haitians. I remember when I first moved to S. Florida and other "anglos" told me how horrible the Cubans were. Then I went to work with Cubans and I discovered they were actually pretty classy, very friendly and generous. Harder working people would be hard to find anywhere. What I discovered was that most of the immigrants, which so many have a problem with, are one of our greatest assets. Look what the Cubans did for Miami. They took a small city and turned it into the doorway to the Caribbean, Central America and S. America. We have tourism from around the world. Floridians should all be thankful to the Cuban immigrants who created wealth beyond our wildest dreams here. Now you want to deport hard working Haitians? You don't even know them. You can't possibly understand what hard working people they are. I can, I work alongside some of them every day. Those who are opposed to immigrants are really opposed to Americans because that is what all of us are except for Native Americans.....and hey....Mexicans and others from Central and South America ARE native Americans.

Not able to find that statement OR admit that you're lying about it, Danni?

Haiti was destroyed by an earthquake and two hurricanes, it has never fully recovered. You can pretend it has and that all the Haitians who were allowed to come here have bright futures in store if they are sent back to Haiti but then that would be f*****g lie wouldn't it? Who benefits from that? You? Me? Them?

Quick list of natural disasters to hit Haiti in the last 15 years:

2004 - 1250 dead from mass flooding. Next hit by Hurricane Ivan, then hit by Hurricane Jeanne.
2005 - Hurricane Dennis, Hurricane Wilma, Tropical Storm Alpha, October floods, November floods.
2006 - November floods.
2007 - March floods, May floods.
2008 - Tropical storm Fay, Hurricane Gustav, Hurricane Hanna, Hurricane Ike
2009 - October flooding.
2010 - 7.0 earthquake, 6.1 earthquake, October cholera outbreak (4000+ dead), Hurricane Tomas, Hurricane Matthew

2011 - 2015 were relatively quite.

2016 - Hurricane Matthew, 35,000 left homeless

That's just nature out to get them. They get a double whammy from the destruction of their local economy by the efforts supposed to bring them aid.

Danni, you continue to avoid admitting you lied about JEFFJ or proving that it wasn't a lie.
Take responsibility for your actions.
