Haitian TPS Status Revoked,Okay, What is the Plan? - Today I open the show ranting about how the Eurocentric media consistently downplays issues of great concern to African people while emphasizing social values that they are particularly obsessed with. Getting to the topic at hand, the POTUS just announced that he is ending the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) that was extended to 60,000 Haitians who entered the U.S. after the devastating 2010 earthquake. While many of our Pan African members are wringing their hands over another display of American racism and xenophobia, I take a completely different track. The order will not be effective for another 18 months and there is great reason for us to consider investing in this group of soon-to-be-returnees. Already, Haitian remittances to their island nation are much greater than foreign aid and increasing year-to-year at four times this nations GDP growth. We emphasize just how brilliant, humble, resourceful and loyal are the Haitian immigrants living among us. I then lay out some specific economic strategies that could be beneficial to those who want to move forward with Haitian development. (LIBMP3-3927)
