This is the second blog post of this year on VIEISME and we are rolling on with the topic of this month which is human trafficking and slavery. To combat the latest insulting comments of President Trump, “Shit-Hole Countries” in reference to Haitian immigrants on TPS (Temporary Protected Status) from fleeing Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. These immigrants are looking to renew their status before January 22, 2018 when their TPS will be up and they’ll be forced to be deported back to Haiti.
After the 2010 Haitian Earthquake there were a lot of global citizens shocked at how impactful and devastating Mother Nature can be. Many people awed at the ruined capital Port Au Prince with live action video from news broadcasting agencies like CNN watching Haitian Citizens pull their fellow man under rubble and debris. It was a horrific time in Haiti’s history; a time of pain, lost and triumph. At this moment people a cross the globe wanted to know what they could do to assist the Haitians struck by the ferocious might of Mother Nature. People donated food, water, medicine, clothing, money basically whatever they had to spare. As terrible as the earthquake was it showed the empathy chip in humans that we could come together as one regardless of race, sex, religion, class, creed etc to help our other fellow brothers and sisters.
But as the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished. There were folks like Evangelical Pat Robertson who called the 2010 earthquake a punishment from GOD because to him the revolutionary colonized Haitians on August 14, 1791 had a ceremony in which they determined they’d fight for their liberation from France which meant to Pat Robertson a deal with the devil. The organization Red Cross were funneling donations from the public and spending it on everything but the victims of the earthquake. In 2013 the U.N. confessed to poisoning drinking water after the earthquake that lead to a massive Cholera outbreak causing additional numbers to the death poll of several tens of thousands of deaths. Truly bringing the statement "Shit-Hole Country" to life. But the worst example of wickedness is the allegations of Hillary and Bill Clinton using their The Clinton Foundation as a means to fund their own political agendas. Not only that, but trafficking helpless children into the sex trade.
In a WikiLeaks from 2015 there were leaks from Hillary Clinton’s emails dating back to 2010. The emails show back and forth conversations about the hopelessness of Haiti during the aftermath of the earthquake but not only that, the formulation of insidious dealings of human trafficking. It’s not a secret Haiti’s most vulnerable and often abused population are the children. From cultural norms of ‘not sparing the rod’ to restavek child slavery to community leaders tricking parents to send their children to shady orphanages that traumatize these youths and milk the label “Haiti is the poorest country on the Western Hemisphere” for money.

What the WikiLeaks from Hillary Clinton’s emails have revealed is that there is a concerted effort to keep Haiti as. “Shit-Hole Country.” Not just because during the 1800s when slavery was the driving labor force Haitians won their independence from France. The first Black Republic to do so from a country regarded as the United States of its time with unprecedented military strength for its era. But because you have institutions that prey on the poor, young and vulnerable. The Red Cross has no qualms stealing money from the Haitian donations fund worth several hundreds of millions of dollars to only build six subpar houses years later when refuge camps still exist in the state capital with hundreds of destitute and sick Haitians.
You have Laura Lisby (pictured below) found with 33 Haitian children after the earthquake with intent to smuggle them out the country. She was not lawfully given permission by the courts in Haiti to do so. She claimed to be working with an organization that helps orphan children but all these kids has parents and families who didn’t give Laura permission to take their kids anywhere. In fact, they didn’t know Laura had them. Laura was taken to a Haitian jail where she spent a few days and was bailed out without any prosecution or follow up punishment for her dealings. Did I mention she was associated with Hillary Clinton? It’s largely suspected that her freedom came by way of Hillary pulling strings.
Laura Lisby isn’t the only foreigner caught trying to traffic Haitian children. She was just the most noted one. Haiti is a fragile country with poverty being the common experience. Unstable corrupt government seems to be the norm. Education held as a luxury most can’t afford the last on the totem pole of issues to tackle is human trafficking. All issues stated above are all important but take a backseat to whatever is pressing at the moment and Haitian is country that never gets a break.
Haiti is a "Shit-Hole Country" because of foreign involvement. From western countries aligning the political positions in Haiti with puppets to exploiting the poverty and natural disasters for personal gain to trafficking and dehumanizing vulnerable populations to creating media hit pieces on Haiti's legacy as the first Black Republic to overthrow its colonizer to the rebranding of Haiti as "Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere."
