Just let them in

The following is from a post at Aid Watch by Michael Clemens, a research fellow at the Center for Global Development in Washington, DC, and an affiliated associate professor of public policy at Georgetown University.
The best thing the United States could do for Haitians would be to let them in, either temporarily or permanently. We are now accepting about 21,000 permanent Haitian immigrants per year, and just a few hundred temporary workers per year. If we really wanted to raise Haitians out of destitution, we could absorb many times more than this.

I thought my childhood in Providence in the 1940's was special and unique. Some of it was spent crawling under the fence to "use" the Brown playing fields adjacent to the old Marvel Gym. I realize that even my brother, only 10 years younger, had a different childhood. Can't wait to read this book.
