troubles in Haiti

Post by AaronJim » Fri Jul 23, 2010 2:18 am

PORT-AU-PRINCE � Washington has threatened to punish Haiti if the struggling Caribbean country refuses to accept criminals deported from the United States, Haiti�s prime minister said last week.
Prime Minister Jacques Edouard Al�xis said he had discussed on several occasions with U.S. officials the threat that deported criminals pose to Haiti�s fragile security. But U.S. officials said the American government plans to increase the number of deportations, Al�xis said.
"The U.S. told us the number of deportees will rise from 25 to 100 per month," he said. "The U.S. administration has threatened to cut its assistance to the country and to revoke Haitian officials� visas if we refuse to receive those deportees."
U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Shaila Manyam said Haitian officials were informed that U.S. law allows the blocking of visas for officials from any country that refuses to accept its citizens after they have been convicted of crimes.
Manyam said the United States did not warn Haitian officials that they would be subject to the penalty. "At no time in these discussions did U.S. officials suggest that U.S. aid to Haiti was in jeopardy,�� Manyam said.
