“It is very good news because we did get the report last week that he was very critical. There has been a community outcry here in Miami to have the prime minister of Haiti free him so he could get adequate care.”
“The governor has the good fortune to have the House and the Senate controlled by his party. If he says he has failed to get funding for those initiatives being proposed by the advisory board, I think this is an indication of his leadership or his commitment regarding Haiti. Many Haitian Americans want temporary protected status for refugees trying to escape political turmoil in the homeland.
The fact that the advisory board didn't make TPS a priority sent a bad vibe to the Haitian community here. It seems the advisory board had a political aim to it, instead of a humanitarian aim that people think it should have. It was just a way for the governor to appease the Haitian community by showing that he's doing something good.”
