We do not see surge of immigrants from the dominican republic government the the the dominican republic may be Someplace we would consider third world.

I mean most of them will tell you that they hope sued starts in your life in a better life in the us. Some of these people also. They had a decent life but they hoped that they could see families that are living in the us and reunite with families. You have few other exceptional examples for instance. I spoke zoo. One lady she left she lay because she what at a dental office and her was asking her to sort of take the cuvee vaccine and she heard that in the us it is not mandatory for her to take the vaccine. Well but at the same time. Most people either to recounted horrific accounts of things they saw The crossed civil countries. The cross rivers equal forest. And some of them. Were telling me how in this journey they saw dead bodies woman who will rape people being abused by traffickers and authorities in some of these countries in some of them Lost all the belongings all the money that they came which so.

They can't hindle this right but at the same time at the same time he told me you know the immigration laws in the international house governing. These type of things require us to accept the citizens. So we do not have any choice whatsoever. He specifically said to the press that he would ask the. Us government sue have ready petition because remember we are receiving From two to three planes they but we expect to receive at least six flights a day in the common days so it's a very very brutal Situation for the asian government which is already battling with crisis.

How do we support structure that wheel which said earthquakes that we can save lives so we are looking at now. The aftermath believes where we provide direct assistance for the haitian reliance is giving direct cash assistance in the hands of the most vulnerable so that they can we build so that they can be able to bury their loved ones. Like the gentleman you heard earlier. Today's it can about him losing everything including his gods the lively would. That's what they used to be able to send their children to school. So why we are doing is providing direct assistance to those people so that they can at least be able to survive the next few few months but at the same time. How do we make sure we provide assistance. That will be lower lasting. Make sure that we have the proper road when something like that happens again.

"Who controls the money. That is pledged. Yes i mean. I think that while it's undoubtedly true that especially haitian civil society members want to have a say they are also wary of working with the haitian government particularly with the administration that is currently in place. And i think the terrible thing would be if this made Organizations not want to work together. Because i think that's what we saw in the wake of the two thousand ten earthquake was the land of ten thousand ngos cropping up an each one playing by their own rules and not speaking to each other and talking to each other so even though aid itself foreign aid to haiti is of dubious nature in terms of its helpfulness and who it benefits because sometimes the money. These organizations rage go to pay their ceo. Salaries are in ours. There's all kinds of things that were uncovered from investigations about the aid. Not just with the red cross on that flooded into haiti after the two thousand ten earthquake but then of course the haitian government has at times also mismanaged funds. Funds have disappeared. We saw this. During the petra harry bay scandal leading up to the protests that eighty experienced route two thousand eighteen and the scandal so haiti was purchasing oil at a discounted rate and the money that the government saved was supposed to go back into all these infrastructure projects and those projects didn't happen and so people in twenty eighteen began to ask on twitter and other social media could take bits foci bail whereas the petrol kobe money and i also wanna talk about like weird. This earthquake happened to situate us. Like in haiti right. When the two thousand ten earthquake happened it affected port-au-prince which is hades capital Tends to be more more centralized. There's more access points to prince. Much of haiti. Social services etc are rooted and based importer prince. This high. The earthquake happened in south west region in a less central and more rural area. What are the challenges given the geographical location of hard hit places like chevy me. That didn't have in that. Bilton rapid response structure. That for two points did have yes. I think that while the southwestern peninsula is less densely populated if you were to look at a map of haiti you also see that. Especially on sort of westernmost tip that. It's actually easier to get there by boat than driving across the terrain and so this became Even though you know these cities that were hit are far less populated so we don't expect to hab upwards of two hundred thousand casualties but it's still. It's a human tragedy on multiple levels because there are there are other kinds of tragedies that can happen in the week and those things are different kinds of aftershocks and if people can't get water and food and there's also injured people who need medical care and There have to be ambulances that can come in and get people and drive on the roads which were unfortunately impacted by the remnants of tropical storm. Grace which i believe was a tropical depression when it hit haiti. But because of the infrastructure realities This creates flooding and just makes the recovery effort that much more difficult makes the isolation that much more profound so going back to that question. How do we help. We talked about what not to do. But what works when it comes to aid after crisis like the one. We're seeing in haiti right now. I think what works on making sure that doing due diligence. I mean and i think that when people give money they imagine that it's going directly to the haitian people so the more we can find organizations that are often smaller grassroots organizations without big names which is why talking to haitian people even haitian americans who have family there can give some idea of cool is in the southwest on that we can give money to you in. I'll just name one organization which is focused on bear one of the bigger ones as well but certainly there are other smaller. Ones and vacant. Even point People to them And i think that that is the beautiful thing about that organization. Is they understand the landscape and they know who needs what at any particular time so the the biggest thing is making sure that the communication lines are open and that people are really doing their homework if they do on. Actually help Let's take a break. This is the.

"Don't have the parliament you know. We don't bother functioning. There's been no elections at department level. So there's no politics but that hasn't stopped ten senators while still effectively elected. Senators say they also going on board the provisional president by the name of senator Bail and that is as it were tired of the haitian government. So you have to prime minister's you have potential you provisional president and finally the last twist is that the few goal along with the two thousand twelve constitution which was amended. Some constitutional experts in haiti. Save the constitution is not the real constitution because it was never translated into real it was translated on it goes just written in french. Then according to the original constitution. If you're going to have an amendment the amendment as to immediately be published in krill in the official government paper of record which is quality window that was never done so we oprah rating basically in a situation where the constitution is no longer a valid because it does not indicate in any way who should be the president so this is a situation which provides clearly a period of great volatility instability and as a fight clearly between all of those different actors and on top of that fight. You have the international community and the final factor in that crisis is that you have had the emergence of civil society and seavula society. That is extremely vocal but rather poorly organized and it does not really accept the legitimacy of the current government and it is also very worried about the traditional political opposition so you have different actors contending for power. The question then is can you get a compromise. Between all of those actors that would set up a provisional government that who seek to appease the different social forces and generate a climate where you can have some election that will be perceived by haitian population as legitimate free unfair. So this is essentially where we are. You've really given us toward a force of the incredibly difficult situation that haiti's found itself in in regards to its prominent institutions. What is it meant on the street in haiti for the last several years even before this most recent trauma of the assassination. What is meant for rule of law in haiti and the effectiveness of its governance. One would think it would be a challenge. Even a normal times let alone against the backdrop of global pandemic so what how has haitian society and and governance reacted given these major questions about its fundamental institutions and and constitution we've reached a point of utter decay of the fundamental institutions of haiti. I mean we're not legitimate. While we don't have a president who was assassinated than you was already contested. we have two prime ministers. They are contested. We are the provisional president has been nominated by the senate is contested and then we have similar society. They operated nation. I'm not talking about educated. And he'd done they fail you well to do people in haitian society. I'm talking about the vast majority of deflation. They already outside the system. I think they've given up to allow degree on the government and on. There was a resurgence as upset of civilised decided in the last two years and those are the very young people when young students some trade unionists lawyers activists journalists and that population is very. They're young. i mean if you look at haiti it has had a demographic trends formation most people in haiti now op people were not on that young but they'll also Without historical memory may maury when he fell most of that generation that was in the streets never lived to the dictatorship of the and the only thing that they've known is crisis after crisis. Since the fall of. I mean you just look at what is happening. Eighty since nineteen eighty six. It's a series of events that lead to an accumulation of small on the crisis up to this very moment in two thousand twenty one when the assassination of the president as rini been extreme form of the expression of the crisis. Even in a country like eighty where we have had nasty dictators and they're incompetent leaders. Assassination of president is very rare and in very different context the assassination of Just before the first american nuclearization that lasted denies endured before so that uh nation is really condensation as it were of the problem problems that he is facing announced been facing and for the vast majority of haitians. You are trying to make leaving dubbed the bottom line and there is a complicated new phenomena. Nope and telling you but much more pronounced and that is depreciation of gangs in. Poll quests and in certain major cities in haiti and doors gangs. Actually the out taken over baldo full pass and the government has been unable to reinforce order in those areas so therefore you out appropriation. that is really basij. Not only because it canonical is suffering but also because they are confronting the violence over those gangs. Initially those gangs were targeting.

Jen is on vacation this week. There's diener i'm bill and this was just is a crazy story. it's not the not the lightest during. Start this segment off with. But karen header news before or and you can read up at follow up on eight fifty w. f. t. l. dot com. The president of haiti has been assassinated. And this is wild and early today. Their time haitian government says president Juvenile moise was killed by a group of assailants at his home early today. First lady also shot. She's going to survive though. Government statement doesn't identify the assailants. Say as it says. They only spoken spanish weird so that means they would not be. Haitian if that's true right. Maybe i crazy story though that is just. It's tough tough situation for haiti to try to get going. It's either a terrible terrible storm. He's assignation or or the clinton foundation ripped him off from thirty million dollars. Yeah there's there's also that boy it's tough man. I know they can just never get ahead. I feel i feel bad. That's crazy one to follow up with though and yet you do have to. One of the question asked the question because it everything in south florida is affected by that area of the country and the caribbean. It's just is sure if there's some kind of new regime coming in does that mean more haitian migrants coming our way. Who knows the no. It's it's it's a big story for us. You know what we know. Why talking about haiti. Because it's a big deal. I mean we we get a lot of immigrants that come this this way drew so and obviously the haitian immigrants who do live here. You know that. That's that's a that's a big deal. It's a big deal. Anytime a world leader gets assassinated really. That's not something that happens too often. Thankfully we don't want it to happen. So yeah that's gosh. It's a crazy story not us. Though in this country we care about our sports. Oh yes and this has become top headline over everything cybersecurity. Don't worry about it. Worried about yukari. Richardson that's right. That is pretty stinky. Though because i thought at least once a background information she was the she has red hair. Eyelashes one hundred. I think she broke the record for the hundred yard sprint hundred meter sprint. She's officially out of the olympics. Do that failed. We'd test out of everything. Because they gave her a four week suspension. That knocked her out of the hundred meter. Which is the big event as the big premiere event to there were gonna let her race in the relay. She's even out of that. Yeah cake rule. It really is. I hate to say it. The more i think about this in the stories about a week old now since it originally happened she got to know well and that's a no. It's a potential risk. I mean and that's that that'd be harder right and that's the thing i mean she. She did fess up to it too when they interviewed her about it last week. She said i knew the rules. You know i. I knew that it was something that wasn't supposed to do. So she wasn't making any excuses in that aspect of things. But it still doesn't change the fact and i know we agree on this that it's just such a dumb rule stupid rule especially when you look at it. We get the nba finals going on right. Now they gave up. They don't test for pot anymore right for we'd of any kind you know. Edibles anything for cannabis because it was so widespread for decades for pain relief. That's why nba players were using it. I think the nfl officially is they have an will. Don't ask don't tell policy yet pretty much. Even though it's still on the books baseball. I have no idea what they're doing but now you've got olympic the international olympic committee still banning people for for we'd gone. Yeah and here's the thing that bothers me too about that is number one. Obviously their their rules committee is very far behind when it comes all that But number two. You're allowing in this kind of leap here but you're allowing transgender athlete. Who has to take know different types of hormones to make that transition from male to female. That'll fine you allow that. That's fine against your anti doping rules but you get a knock some girl out. Sure who won the hundred meter dash for smoking weed. It's it's stupid it's archaic. there's no. I think no one disagrees with the fact it's a stupid rule. Everybody and here's we find a lot of debate. Interestingly enough on the eight fifty facebook page. There was a big strong debate on this when karen posted which was interesting. A lot of people were saying. Yeah it is stupid but rules are rules you have to know. That's the problem. Don't risk on her part. I know she went through a tragedy with her mom. Whatever dumb dumb decision it is no for sure. And there's and there's no denying that and it is rule and even though it's dumb rule and it's it's an old rule outdated. It's still something that needs to be followed because it's in the books so and that's right and that's the way it is but it just feels like an injustice because of how outdated it. Is you know what. I mean when you compare it to the other things that we were just saying as it feels wrong. So maybe maybe they'll look into this and decide you know what maybe we should change this. Because we realize how outdated this is but knowing the olympic committee. And the you know anti-doping agencies they'll probably just leave it alone because they're not they probably won't you're exactly right you know what else is out. It's been an interesting story. And we kind of snicker and laugh because espn the four letter. Sports network has gone so woke recently in their social justice issues. There was a couple years that you couldn't it was unwatchable.

Not for the company. They pulled her off the coverage of the nba finals as right done. She made some comments when she claims that she didn't know she was being recorded. I don't think she was actually if you heard it or saw it. She said a fellow reporter was getting more assignments. 'cause she's black. He's since apologized profusely. She has didn't work but replace for the series by the way. The phoenix suns took game. One but she's out. It's kind of like. I kind of sort of feel bad for her. But it's kind of like the network coming back to bite itself over sure now. They're the center of their own controversy which they loved to promote so much sunk them. In the ratings they fight. You know it's interesting. They finally got off that a little bit. Diener yet right. They realized it was killing them. And they got a new president at the network. Yeah well now you get this nipping at your heels. And that's why i love this. And i don't feel bad for Rachel nichols at all. Because she's a victim of the of the culture that she helped to promote a promoter of what she she was. Yeah just going along for the ride. I mean she was.

10 years on, Michle Montas recalls the day no Haitian can forget

"In the days following the earthquake ten years ago that killed around two hundred twenty thousand Haitians. The sounds of praying shouting. Not yelling filled the streets and a sense that this was the end of the world. Well that's one of the powerful memories from survivor. Michele Montas that former UN spokesperson who just returned turned home to live in her native country when disaster struck within hours she was working with the UN peacekeeping mission Nusa helping coordinate a huge international aid effort it the UN having lost one hundred and two of its own staff on that fateful day to mark the tenth anniversary this week she spoke to News Christina Silvio one aftershock after the other the initial one was in my house and lived with I saw the walls being just cracking. We all went out to nobody. Stayed in the houses of Forego `about to three nights. I spent a fulling three nights with a group of a school children in a Catholic nuns who across the street from me and nobody will go inside buildings and dissents that listening to people praying shouting yelling with the sense that this was the end of the world and that will not can that really marked me and we'll stay with me rest of my life. We realized how many people impacted only the following shoe days. The following is that's when I was called to join minister so I was retired from the UN. So I thought and I I was glad to join minister because dealer the only one we're capable of actually playing the coordinating role to help the aid. That was pouring into Haiti. While all the infrastructure was down including the airport. How really was able to a channel that eight and distribute that it? Can you talk a bit about what it was like that first response and the rescue and the emergency response what was it like. During those first days is to get it off the ground there was at the heart of it as well as you just said. Yes yes it was. It was about digging people out of of rubbles also which way which was not easy to Haitian government was all the administrative buildings had been destroyed. There was no national palace. Government was just is functioning inside a police station and the His government could not react had no means to react and the UN was there to actually get that aid even to the where troops coming from the US from Canada from different country are just arriving but it the first responders where people from the UN troops from the UN who actually were helping to dig people out of the rubble. We're we're helping also to evacuate people had been wounded and helping the medical teams coming into Haiti to set up emergency clinics in the street. That's where people were had to be amputated where had to be then transported to hospitals. They were not hospitals was that were really makeshift ones because the real hospitals had collapsed fifty centers in hospitals collapse. That day and there was no way that he's an infrastructure. Could take those people and do you. Employ extraordinary role in evacuating. Some people. Were actually as soon as it was possible. Possible to fly them out to fly them to different places where it could be taken care of the wounded even though the UN had also itself itself been hit quite hard yes the UN was was still trying to get people out of the rubble over the Christopher hotel we lost the UN lost one hundred and two people pulled that day and the people who were from the civilian mission. We've been working in that hotel in new almost vicky few people actually managed to get Out Alive. How long did that emergency response last in terms of the organization until it became less of an emergency response and more into to rebuilding? It took a while to it took a while because even rebuilding was done on a temporary basis. I we had a tense. For the people we thought lodging then we had a temporary lodging that were built we had camps that had to be installed with water supply and it took civil civil civil months while I would say up to six months before actually you know people could be taken care of six months in which they are to be taken care of the camps to be set up the food had to be distributed. Water was a great problem. The distribution of water and Dominica. Help all these where everything was urgent. Everything meanwhile the aid was being flown in could not cog was clogged into the airport report and to get that out to people who needed it took weeks and weeks. They were number of NGOs there and I have to say a lot of them came. Would you know wanting to help but not always knowing how to help. And that's a good thing that the UN was was there with the infrastructure. The agents for UNICEF was there all the agencies of the United Nations were there within the civilian mission. They were not at that building collapsed but they were able to react pretty fast into of a helping with the water with food and with the emergency response wants. What was it like for you to go through such a catastrophe and and live through it? What does that brought you? Well I think it marked my life and is very difficult to forget it. I don't think I will ever forget it. I don't think any Haitian can forget it. Every time they reverse we like the tenth anniversary three there was a fifth anniversary was marked. People can tell you exactly where the where when he happened. They can tell you exactly what we're doing they can tell you who the lost and in what circumstances they can tell you about you know waiting for hours for your loved one to be taken out of rebels they can tell you with great precision season and I can tell you we quit precision When I got friends out when I had to go tools when I saw buddies bodies being dumped in trucks and being taken to make shift a grave? We're we're dumping buddy because They cannot could not keep track because as the bodies were coming out they had to be taken. Some weird could not stay in in rot. And these you never forget this sniffer. Is there something about human character trait. That you've learned from that experience celebrity solidarity with it was destroyed idea from Haitians. Sion's was amazing as you had people with the bear Hanes d I d trying to get people out from under the rubble. solidiarity of people from slums rushing to help a people at the university that had collapsed students. Who are better off the way international diety I think the number of people who are in the US in Canada in France or over the world who contributed as much as they could for people for the first food aid for wooder for things that were immediately needed and also the solidity of countries remember one Medical team that from Israel Immediately to in started operating in a tent in the street and Taking care of people that need needed to be amputated because they were going to be effected. It had been taken out of the rubble but they had been there seven days. Four days or more do you think today. Haiti and Haitians are better. Prepared appeared to face catastrophe of that magnitude. It's difficult to see There were some things done. Do we have shown under protection civil. which is the organism in charge of the prevention of disasters that has been very efficient? had been efficient before four. Are doing different hurricanes hurricanes and we're really enforced by support from you in deep For instance and the are better able to D- to to predict for instance hurricanes and better able to respond to hurricanes and have been better able to within the last ten in years to respond to hurricanes. But you know would it be able to face a new earthquake. I'm the true reason being that. Essentially people try to rebuild. Once the international aid stopped people started rebuilding their homes. Do we the way they could With makeshift material. Some of it with a rebel from the earthquake in two thousand unintended in those affordable and will probably collapse in case there is another earthquake. Heat is better a way that it can happen and you have hasten especially saying the the out we have another possibility of another the earthquake coming to the north of the country and people are aware. And that's that's part of part of winning the battle of making making people aware of knowing what to do in case it happens of course in something as catastrophic as The two thousand ten earthquake. We'll meet a population with even more than their abilities. People report today in Haiti then the way when the earthquake happened in two thousand and ten
